Starter Group

Our "Starter Group" lessons are held on a Sunday Afternoon at Winifred Holtby School and consists of 2 half hour sessions between 2.30 and 3.30 and places are by invitation only.

All of the coaches and volunteers teach in the pool with the children which makes it a very personal experience. The lessons are aimed primarily at 5 year olds who cannot swim, but we do take them up to the age of 7 and we keep the class sizes small. This makes it easier to look after the children when they are lacking in confidence in the water.

We treat our Starter Group program as feeder group for the clubs Tadpoles squad and once they reach the standard required they will be expected to move up and progress their skills.

The "Starter Group" sessions started approximately 20 years ago at Sydney Smith pool and moved to Winifred Holtby when Sydney Smith closed for a major refit and has been there ever since.

The aim of the Starter Group is to take non swimmers or those that are nervous in the water and get them to the standard to move in to the Tadpoles Squad.

We never advertise our sessions but have always managed to fill our classes by word of mouth.

We have over the years had various helpers. Libby Beadle was a regular at one time but we are always on the lookout for new volunteers to help with the Starter Group sessions and any older swimmers who are interested only have to ask.

Amy Beadle is a product of our Starter Group, and she along with Charlotte Oliver is helping out on a Sunday (gala's permitting)
