Beverley Leisure Complex is offering a wide range of aquatic activities over the next few months.
October Half Term Aquatic Activities (25th – 29th Oct 10)
One-to-one swimming lessons for children. Individuals can enjoy the benefits of private lessons with one-to-one teaching; the lessons last half an hour and will take place from 8 – 10am. Our aim is to make learners feel relaxed and comfortable and learn at their own pace. These lessons allow us to address the needs of each individual learner and one-to-one tuition is often more effective than class lessons for this reason. The cost for the week is £89. Helen Woodmansey will be the teacher. Places will be offered on a first come first paid basis and spaces are limited.
Snorkelling Taster Week – this session will take place 9 – 10am Monday – Friday during half term (dates as above). Children attending must be in Grade 5 or above. During the week children will learn to snorkel safely and have lots of fun. The cost for the week is £19.50.
“Crash Course” swimming lessons are running for children in grades one and two during half-term. These are a great way for children to learn how to swim and improve their confidence. The course is intensive so the children’s progression can be seen daily.
Have you ever thought about becoming a swimming teacher? Beverley Leisure Complex is running a course leading towards the Swim Teachers Association (STA) Swim Teachers Certificate (Beginners)(STC B). The course will take place 8.45am – 3:00pm every Tuesday during November.
Holders of the STC (B) can teach up to 10 beginners and may also act as an assistant teacher and teach larger classes or advanced skills under direct supervision of a suitably qualified swimming teacher. Candidates must be at least 16 years old at the time of the examination, hold an acceptable life saving qualification and attend an STA course of instruction that will have a minimum duration of 20 hours. Candidates are assessed during the course and take a practical teaching examination and a written theory examination at the end of the course.
