Whitwick & District U3A - Confidence in Water


This is a short-course group.

It would benefit people who are a little unsure of themselves in water and would like to be more confident, or for people who would like to brush up on their technique or attempt a new challenge (e.g. lifting their feet off the bottom of the pool or jumping in or swimming a width/length).
Members with all different levels of ability are invited, but the course might benefit those who would like to overcome any particular difficulties or fears. Four people in the class would be an appropriate number for safety reasons.One-to-one help will be given in the water, not from the poolside.

Comments from previous courses

It was something I wanted to do for more than 20 years and not had the confidence to try, but knowing the Group Leader makes such a difference.

When, after only 3 weeks, I managed to swim free style, the Group Leader applauded and got even more excited that even I did.


Hermitage Leisure Centre, Whitwick


The courses run for six weeks, when there are sufficient interested members. The session should last for about an hour.


Below are some pictures of your instructor at a sponsored 1500m (60 lengths) swim. Who knows what you might eventually do!
