Learn to Swim

B.A.R Swim Academy provides opportunities for  individuals to learn to swim.  With our team of highly qualified STA instructors, we deliver the STA International Learn To Swim Program in a group session  (Please see our timetables) or if you prefer on a 1:1 private lesson basis (Subject to prior arrangement).  We take new members from the age of 3 onwards, there is no upper age limit.  We can promise that all of our swimmers will have lots of fun, while learning vitally important skills from the Stanley syllabus right through to the end of the Advanced Platinum Series.
Upon completion of the STA International Learn to Swim programme, Swimmers can progress if they wish on to the STA Junior Lifeguard Academy Program

STA Junior Lifeguard

The STA Junior Lifeguard Academy Scheme enables children from the age of 8 up to the year of their 16th Birthday to learn how to help save lives in and around water. 
Using fun, games and role play scenarios, children will enjoy learning these skills and also be able to use them in real life situations.  STA Junior Lifeguard Academy is delivered in different modules; B.A.R Swim Academy have had discussions and feel it would be more beneficial in linking the First Aid (Junior Medic 1,2 and 3) in with the Lifesaving Skills which are categorized as Seal badges.  This will involve some of the STA Junior Lifeguard Academy sessions being conducted on the Dry side.  Dry side means that the session will not be based in the Swimming Pool.     
After undertaking STA Junior Lifeguard Academy, B.A.R Swim Academy will then arrange provision for those wishing to progress to become Pool Lifeguards.
