Aqua Activities

Our Aqua Activities are a progression on from Level 7 for those who do not wish to join our local club but wish to continue with their water skills. Diving takes place in the spring break and over the school summer holidays. These coach led sessions follow structured lesson plans aimed at those who wish to feel part of a club but have fun at the same time.

Participants must be a minimum of 8 years old* and be able to swim 50m on front and 25m on back as these classes will be in deep water at all times. (6 years providing they have completed the Learn 2 Swim Scheme. Parents of 6 and 7 year olds must stay in the building during activity.)

Aqua Adventure

These 1hr classes encourage young children to participate in fun games and activities in the water. These classes take place in the school  holidays during the day.

Aqua Zone

These classes encourage youngsters to participate in fun aquatic activities in the water such as diving, tumble turns or swimming with flippers. This is also one of the transitional feeder classes into Ren 96 Club.

Little Lifesavers

These coach led sessions aim to introduce children to water safety when playing in and around the water. They will be fun, whilst working through personal survival skills and children will also have the opportunity to try out rescue techniques and towing others through the water. As we progress life saving CPR will be introduced. Children must be able to swim 50metres breast stroke and 50 metres back crawl. This class will be in deep water at all times.

Land Diving Lessons & Lessons from Starting Blocks

These lessons will teach children the basics of how to dive into the water from the poolside and then progressing onto the Diving Blocks. These coach led diving lessons take place at Eastwood Park Leisure and Neilston Leisure Centre, throughout the spring and summer breaks. Children must be confident in deep water and be able to swim 25 metres.
