Wellingborough Amateur Swimming Club

Learn to swim


WASC offer a variety of lessons, ranging from the 'Complete Beginner' progressing through to 'Improvers' and then onto 'Advanced Improvers'.  We teach to a competitive standard so that all our swimmers are qualified to a standard required to enter into the Club, should they wish to do so.

Lessons are held in terms that coincide with the academic term, this is usually around 12 weeks.

All lessons are held at Waendel Leisure Centre, Wellingborough.

If you could also let us know the current level of swimming, this would help us decide whether we need to assess them before the start of term.  Please don't worry if they have not had any swimming teaching before, but for those that have, it is important we start them at the appropriate level.

 Can I help out on poolside?

WASC are always looking for budding teachers / poolside helpers, so speak to the swimming coach about volunteering your services.
