Do you have a budding young swimmer in the family? Do you love swimming too? If your child is looking to develop their swimming and you would like to help them with this, we might just have the answer!
Swimfit is for children over the age of eight (and for adults!) who can swim six lengths continuously and want to improve their swimming skills.
What is Swimfit?
You can do Swimfit with your child at any time or we have instructor led classes you can join. We have 30 Swimfit cards on display at the side of the pool. You and your child pick a card together and then all you need to do is follow the activity on the card. There are a wide range of activities, ranging from 10 to 120 lengths so you can build up your swimming over time.

At Bluecoat Sports we have a wealth of experience when it comes to swimming. We believe the Swimfit activities are a fun and effective way to develop your fitness and your stamina in the water.
The cards help you improve your swimming technique; this is great for children to help them perfect their swimming style and a good refresher for adults swimming with them!
With different cards to choose from you can set fun goals and targets with the kids to motivate them. We all like a challenge and Swimfit is a great way to help the children achieve swimming milestones whilst keeping fit and getting stronger.
Swimfit can be built into your weekly swimming routine to give steady progress, or you can dip in and out if that’s easier for you.
If you want to get really involved with the kids, you can join them in the pool and complete the activities with them. You can do this in your own time, or you can all join in one of our Swimfit classes with an instructor. It’s a great way to spend time with the children whilst being supportive and helping them with their swimming.
You don’t have to get in the pool with them though if you’d rather support from the sidelines! You can help and guide them in choosing their Swimfit cards before they get in the water.
We’ve room for you to sit poolside and encourage them without getting in the swimming pool yourself. If you’d prefer them to have some more technical support, you can book them in for one of the Swimfit classes with our qualified instructors.
The benefits of Swimfit
Here at Bluecoat Sports we’ve found Swimfit to be a great way for our more competent junior swimmers and their parents to improve their swimming.
Swimfit provides a great workout and a sense of achievement in completing the session cards. It’s a great way to swim as a family whilst getting fitter and stronger in the water.
