Swim Academy Programme

Swim Academy Liverpool follows Swim England's Learn to Swim framework and the guidance and expected standards set out by Swim England. The children are taught by qualified instructors and follow Swim England's Award Scheme

Swim Academy Liverpool is structured into five categories and swimmers will progress to the next group when all competencies have been satisfied according to Swim England's expected standards.  We will continuously assess ability, speed and progression, which will vary depending on the individual.  You will be notified of progression to the next group by the swimming instructor.
