Swimming Pool Timetable



Marl Pits Leisure Centre Swim Academy

The Trust has always prided itself on providing swimming tuition of the highest quality. The Swim Academy launched in January 2018 and implemented the STA's International Learn to Swim Programme (ILSP) using STA’s wealth of experience to provide excellent standards of swimming tuition going forward.

The Swim Academy will ensure maximum progression for your child by offering fifty weeks of teaching per year, as well as the opportunity to further develop skills by providing one to one swimming lessons and an exciting array of additional aquatic activities such as Junior lifeguarding programme.

The Learn to swim programme includes the following lesson programmes;

Adult and child - 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 with help from 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 will be in the main pool with a fully qualified STA teacher on the side. 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 Kayaking, Rookie Lifeguard and for those 16 years and over, the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification.

We offer a special needs swimming club, Rossendale Rays at our Marl Pits Pool. The club offers swimming sessions to members and their families, friends and carers, and we cater for all ages and all manner of special needs.
