Swimming Lessons

Junior Lessons are available for children 4 years plus and we cater for beginners and improvers. Stockport Metro Swimming Lessons focus on relaxation, body position and underwater confidence and use a hands on approach. Children learn through fun and gain trust and confidence much quicker as the swimming teacher is in the water with a small group of children.

Please contact the Pool Coordinator at the pool of your choice on either the phone number or the email address below to determine what days and times are available for your child.
