Adult swimming lessons

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The ongoing pandemic means none of the activities on this page are currently taking place.

We offer adult learn-to-swim structured lessons to help get your swimming or to improve your skills in the water.

  • beginners: this is for you if you need water confidence to start your swimming journey
  • improvers: this is for you if you you'd like to be a better swimmer
  • advanced: this is for you if you can swim 50 to 100 metres and would like to improve your stroke technique and stamina

We have lessons available across our sites at all our pools at various times.

Booking is advised at The Hydro, however booking is not required at Knaresborough Pool, Starbeck Baths, Ripon Spa Baths and Nidderdale Pool.

If you are happy to commit to a block of lessons, you can buy a 10-session card, which will save you money. Please contact your local pool for more details.
