Juniors 10 to 15 years

We offer a range of activities targeted towards juniors between 10-15 years old

It’s important to encourage children if they want to get or stay healthy; the NHS state children need to do at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day to maintain a basic level of health, and on three days a week these activities need to develop strong muscles and bones, including sports like gymnastics. Their website states ‘being active for at least 60 minutes a day is linked to better general health, stronger bones and muscles, and higher levels of self-esteem.

At Bluecoat Sports, we offer a range of junior activities for a selection of age groups to ensure they stay fit and healthy. We also offer a Junior membership that provides a variety of benefits to young people. Read about our different classes on offer below and find out more about our Junior memberships on our membership page.

Intensive Swimming Courses

These courses cater for children of all abilities from the complete beginner to the more advanced including Front Crawl/Backstroke and Breaststroke/Butterfly stroke clinics. For those wishing to develop other swimming skills, we offer Snorkelling and Rookie Lifesaving. The daily sessions are 30 minutes over the 5 day course.

Please keep an eye here and on our Instagram and Facebook for updates on future Intensive Swimming Courses.

Rookie Lifesaving

Rookie Lifesaving is a valuable survival, rescue, and sports skills session, delivered in an exciting way that will get children involved and motivated.

Our programme offers the first opportunity to explore water safety, gradually gaining independence and confidence while learning vital life skills. Our team of instructors will inspire and embolden your child, helping them keep themselves, their friends, and their family safe in the water through a range of fun activities that lead towards a series of awards.

Rookie Lifesaving is aimed at children who have finished to Learn To Swim program. The scheme begins with Stage 1 of the Bronze Award and progresses to Stage 3 of the Gold Award; starting off at an ability level suitable for brand-new rookie swimmers and progressing to the level where our Rookie Lifeguards will understand vital first aid lessons and can perform impressive lifesaving tows, rescues and saves.

The first half an hour of these session will be ‘dryside’ learning, where our Rookie’s will learn vital first aid skills. The second half an hour is ‘poolside’ learning, where our Rookies will learn key lifesaving skills in the water, such as rescues.

1:1 Swimming Lessons

Some children (and adults) need more individual attention to help them develop their swimming skills. We offer 1:1 lessons for children or adults who want more support with either learning to swim or improving their swimming. Our friendly instructors help you build your confidence and develop your breathing and swimming techniques so you become a more confident and proficient swimmer. Alongside our 1:1 sessions, we also offer the option of 2:1 for siblings or friends close in ability.
