Swimming

Swimming is one of the best forms of all round exercise available, an activity for everybody, whether you want to get healthier, fitter, or just have fun or relax. No matter what your age, weight and physical ability, swimming and water-based activities can provide you with whole body workout, great for shaping up and even a gentle swim can burn over 200 calories in half an hour. It is also a great way to relax and refresh you after a stressful day. We have a family changing room option in addition to our standard changing facilities and our lockers require a £1 coin which is returned to you.

Additional customer information

Please note that our pools may run additional activities. This may affect the number of lanes or space available during your session. Please contact the Centre before you visit if you require further information. All customers are asked to wear appropriate swimwear designed for water based activities when using the pools. Every effort will be made to accommodate customers with specific religions, cultural, medical or other requirements. Our priority is customer safety at all times.

lessons

You can learn to swim at any age! We offer swim classes from age 3 years and all of our lessons are taught by qualified instructors who will help to develop confidence both in and around the water.

Our lessons follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme. This uses fun and games to take children from their first splash to full competence in the pool and will ultimately help your child develop confidence in the water.

You can use our booking form to book onto lessons.  Please email completed forms to RuncornSwimmingPool@halton.gov.uk

Group Lessons

We follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme which guides your child through seven clearly defined stages, with badges to gain along the way. After the seven stages are completed your child can progress onto the Aquatic Skills stages 8-10.

Our internet based Home Portal system allows you to access information about your child’s swimming lessons including:

  • Your child’s performance against the key competencies for their course level, e.g. Swim 25m efficient backstroke.
  • A rating from the teacher on how they are doing against this competency, e.g. Needs practice / Fair / Good
  • Notification of when your child is ready to move up a level and the ability to choose from the available times for your child to move into
  • Record of all assessments and pass dates for each level

classes & Activities

We now offer several classes of Aqua fit each week. Here is a list of our current sessions, but do check out our timetable for the full list of workout classes.

Aqua Fit

An aerobics session in the pool that can maintain and improve stamina, strength and suppleness as well as increase cardiovascular fitness. Unlike aerobics on land Aqua Fit is low-impact and the cushioning effect of the water protects joints in the spine, ankle, hip and knees. It is suitable for people of all ages and abilities as participants can work at a variety of levels by increasing effort and using resistive equipment.

 

family

We have a special Family exclusive session for making the most out of your special time together. Don’t forget to visit our timetable for session times.

Family Splash

Floats and toys are available in the pool for parents and younger children to enjoy.
