In the pool
Each winter sees twice-a-week swim sessions for our nippers, youth and adults at the 25m pool in Ilfracombe. There they get to grips with their swimming, their stamina, their rescue technique and their board paddling.
Children can start as early as six years old, but they will need to be able to swim 50m with a recognised stroke (ie. not doggy paddle) for their own safety.
Nippers train in two sessions (they won’t swim both - see below for the age split), from 6.30 – 8.45pm. Our Sunday afternoon sessions start at 3.45pm with an hour of training for nippers (and beginner Masters) followed by the 4.45-6pm slot for more experienced Masters and Youth.
