Public & Family Swim at Sidmouth Swimming Pool
Lane Swimming. Programmes. Classes
Here at LED's Sidmouth Swimming Pool we have light and airy swimming pool that offers a diverse and varied programme of sessions and activities. The leisure centre's pool is deck level, has 5 lanes and measures 25 metres and is kept at a comfortable temperature at all times
We offer a comprehensive programme of lessons for both adults and children and we also run SwimFit sessions alongside AquaZumba, Aqua Fit, and health classes. The programme runs for a continuous 50 weeks of the year and offers individual and group teaching that follows the Swim England pathway for swimming. Please feel free to have a chat with a member of the swim team for more information
We offer various sessions for the public at all three pools. These include:
Lane Swimming: The pool is split into slow, medium and fast lanes for all abilities of lane swimmer. Note lanes may be single or double width.
Swim for all: The pool is split halfway, with half of the pool available for lane swimming and half the pool open for all ages abilities and aquatic activities. Inflatables not permitted, but swim aids are more than welcome.
Family Swim: The pool is open for families and casual swimming. There may be a single lane in for mixed ability lane swimming within the session. Swimming aids and equipment may be used.
Training lanes: The pool is split into single lanes. All abilities are welcome, but this session is designed for the more serious lane swimmers - for example those wishing to follow a training session or swimfit plan.
SwimFit: Lanes available. A coach or SwimFit activator may be present.
For the safety of all our pool users, all children aged under 8 must be supervised by a responsible adult aged over 16 years old. The swimming pool adult:child ratios state that children aged between 5 and 8 years old that are using the main pool can be supervised on a 2:1 basis. Any children under 5 must be supervised on a 1:1 basis. In addition, we require that and children aged under 5 using the learner pool must be supervised on a 2:1 basis
I wanted to tone my abs ready for my holiday but going weekly to this session made me realise how much better my posture was and has even helped with my backache at work
I was always sceptical about yoga thinking that I wouldn’t be bendy enough but after my first class I realised there was so much more to it! I’m encouraged to explore postures and whilst the classes can be intense the work goes deep and stays with me long after I’ve gone home
