Adult & Children Swimming Lessons Cork

Daunted by swimming? Have you ever considered swimming lessons? Whether you’re a total beginner or want to improve your swimming stroke, at the LeisureWorld Swim School in Cork we have swimming lessons for all ages and abilities. Adult lessons are fun, enjoyable and structured to enable the individual swimmer to learn at his/her own pace.

Each person is assessed at the beginning of the course and is advised of which class will suitably reflect their ability so they are learning alongside adults of the same standard. We feel this is the best way to teach swimming as it allows you the opportunity to progress at your own pace.
