Swimming Lessons

The government has confirmed that indoor leisure can reopen from April 12 and this means that we can begin to restart swimming lessons.

We will be staging the return of our DCLT swimming lessons with phase one sessions starting from April 12 and phase two starting from May 10.

Here is what you need to know.

Phase one

Lessons at Adwick Leisure Centre and Dearne Valley Leisure Centre will start from Monday 12 April.

Children’s sessions will be on the same day and time as they were before the most recent lockdown.

Askern Leisure Centre is undergoing a major development to improve the facilities for the community of Askern and Campsall. This means that the venue will remain closed for the rest of 2021, reopening as a greatly improved facility in 2022.

Therefore, it will not be possible to restart swimming lessons until then. Swimmers who previously had lessons at Askern will be able to restart their lessons at an alternative venue if they wish.

Our contact centre team will be phoning all Askern swimmers over the next few days to discuss options.

Direct Debit payments will not restart until after we have spoken to you and confirmed what you would like to do.

A capital investment plan for Thorne Leisure Centre will begin in autumn 2021.

This will see a huge overhaul of the venue, including the reintroduction of fitness facilities as well as other substantial improvements to the centre for the communities of Thorne and the surrounding areas.

The swimming pool will reopen for public swimming sessions from April 12, however, Swimming Lessons will not return to the centre this year. This will minimise further disruption to Thorne Swimming Lessons customers, starting for a few months and then relocating to an alternative centre.

Customers who previously had lessons at Thorne will have the option to restart their lessons at an alternative venue. We have identified session times at other centres that are at similar times to those previously operated at Thorne.

Our contact centre team will be phoning all Thorne swimmers over the next few days to discuss their options.

Direct Debit payments will not restart until after we have spoken to you and confirmed what you would like to do.

Phase two

Armthorpe Leisure Centre is currently undergoing a redevelopment that is due for completion at the beginning of May. Swimming Lessons will recommence when the works are completed from May 10.

Swimming lessons that were restarted last year after the first lockdown, will automatically be restarted from 10 May with monthly payments starting from 8 May.

Days and time slots will remain the same, if the day or time is no longer suitable, or you no longer wish to continue Swimming Lessons, please get in touch.

Lessons at Rossington Community Swimming Pool and Edlington Leisure Centre will restart in from 10 May

We want to thank all our Swimming Lesson customers for their continued support and understanding during what has been a very difficult year.

Please be assured that we are working to restart our swimming lesson programme in a way that can accommodate as many children as possible in a safe and secure way while balancing the need to refurbish some of our venues.

The work that is almost completed at Armthorpe will give our customers a look at the standards we will be aiming for at each of our venues.

We look forward to seeing you all soon and please do speak to our customer service team who will be working hard to accommodate all session times and dates.
