Swimming Pool Timetable
Marl Pits Leisure Centre Swim Academy
We are dedicated to providing swimming tuition of the highest quality. Accordingly, the Swim Academy launched in January 2018 and utilises the STA's International Learn to Swim Programme (ILSP), while using STA’s wealth of experience to provide excellent standards of swimming tuition going forward.
The Swim Academy ensures effective progress for your child by offering 50 weeks of teaching per year, as well as the opportunity to further develop skills through one-to-one swimming lessons and exciting aquatic activities such as Junior lifeguarding programmes.
The Learn to Swim programme includes the following lesson programmes:
- Adult and Toddler - For babies and young children from 4months – 3years these classes are designed to build water confidence through play. The child is accompanied in the water by a parent/guardian alongside a fully qualified STA teacher. These lessons follow the Star Fish Awards
- Pre-School - For children of 3-4 years, a class of 6 children will be in the small pool with a fully qualified STA teacher in the water. These lessons follow the Stanley Awards.
- Evening & Weekend Lessons - For children 4+ years, a class of 8 children in the main pool with a fully qualified STA teacher on poolside. These lessons work towards the Octopus, Gold Fish, Angel Fish & Shark Awards.

Once the swimmer has developed the core range of skills required to be confident, competent, and safe in water, they may have the choice to participate in different aquatic disciplines. On offer at Rossendale’s pools are Rookie Lifeguard and for those 16 years and over, the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification.
We host a special needs swimming club, Rossendale Rays at our Marl Pits Pool. The club offers swimming sessions for all ages and all special need, in addition to family members, friends, and carers.
