The Heritage Swimming Lessons (3-12year olds)
Here at The Portlaoise Heritage Fitness Club we run a number of swimming lessons throughout the year. The lessons are aimed at building children’s confidence in the pool with the eventual goal of comfortably swimming lengths. The lessons combine effective tuition & games to ensure children gain the most from their weekly lesson.
All our swim lessons are Swim Ireland accredited, the children are presented with a Swim Ireland certificate at the end of each semester so they can see what they have achieved and set goals for their next season sessions.
The swim lessons are open to members and non members and sessions run for 10, 8 or 6 weeks depending on the time of year. We also run two swim camps during the summer months, one week in July and one week in August. Pricing for lessons depends on session length and also how many family members are participating.
