What are intensive courses?
Our intensive courses are a block of swimming lessons in one week and follow the same framework as the Learn to Swim Programme. We also run Stroke Specific courses to work on a specific movement and stroke throughout the week. Swimmers work with the same teacher allowing for continuity.
Next Intensive Course: Monday 31 May – Friday 4 June

What are the benefits of the courses for the children?
- Through repetition and constant swimming, we often see swimmers improve significantly throughout the intensive courses
- Continually practising or being in the water has a huge impact not only on the progression of the swimmers learning but also their confidence in the water
- Our intensive courses are great for those swimmers who are new to swimming and want to gain confidence quickly, or those who are close to moving up a stage
- With 5 lessons in one week we often see swimmer move up a stage that would usually have taken them 5 or 6 weeks to complete
- For our higher stage swimmers, constantly swimming throughout the week sets them in good stead to join club swimming. With Taunton Deane, swimmers can often swim up to 16 hours a week and so through our intensive courses, swimmers build up the stamina and confidence to jump straight in with the club.
