Having fun in swimming lessons

Share this page

Are you taking swimming lessons? Yes! Well, you’re one of hundreds of thousands of kids who do every year!

The ASA (that's us!) are the people who tell your teachers what you should be doing in your lessons using something called the Learn to Swim Framework, which is powered by British Gas - our principle partner.

It's not really important that you remember what it's called (although tell your mum and dad to ask for it!). All you need to know is: lessons should be fun! So we're hoping you're all having fun while learning.

Get Swimming with British Swimming!

All of our Olympic athletes started somewhere!

I watched my brother do a lesson & couldn't wait to get in the water. Liam Tancock, World Champion 50m Backstroke.

 

I remember getting my 25m badge and mum putting it on my towel. I was so proud.
Jo Jackson, Olympic bronze medallist & former World Record holder

Find out what Fran Halsall, Robert Pavoni, Lizzie Simmonds and double Olympic Champion Rebecca Adlington did when they were young!

Games

Next time you go swimming with your mum or dad why not try some fun games with them. Ask them to look at the games below and remember them for when you go to the pool.

Become the next Rebecca Adlington, Liam Tancock or Ellie Simmonds

Swimming.org can help give the best possible tuition to people from a young age who can't wait to get in the water and make that big splash.

Through us there are so many swimming lessons to choose from with our various swimming pools where people can even brush up on their diving skills. We help improve the way swimming teachers use their classes to get the best out of their students.

You could work your way up to the top like our best British swimmers such as Rebecca Adlington and the young Tom Daley.

We can help you do the same with swimming lessons in getting up to 200 metres or more, as well as some underwater practice. If it's just a bit of fun you want, have a go at the fun swimming games we mentioned above.

 

With all this on offer, it's hard for it all to sink in; so we've made it easier for you budding swimmers with our swimming lessons FAQ section for children and adults.

Our methods are some of the quickest and best ways to learn to swim, so if you lack confidence or just need that extra push, we can get you there swimmingly.
