1-2-1 Cost (please note 1-2-1 sessions are also valid in our endless pool facility so you can swap between the two if purchasing a session pack):
Single session £60
3 session Pack £171
6 Session Pack £330
(see booking page or app for relevant expiry dates for packs)
Small Group sessions 2-2-1 or 3-2-1
Single session £40 Cost PER SWIMMER, We can take a maximum of 3 swimmers in these sessions.
Small groups are avaialble for open water skills only, if you are looking for stroke development we would reccomend individual atttention in a 1-to-1 session. The reason for this is everybodys stroke is different, and it is far more productive to work with stroke correction on an individual basis.
