Shoreline Greystones -Summer Intensive Swimming Lessons

Summer Intensive Swimming Lessons take place throughout the month of July and August in Shoreline Leisure Greystones. They are a week long (Monday-Friday) 40min lesson. These daily lessons are a great way of improving technique and skills in just one week. Our intensive swimming lessons allow for faster progression as the skills learnt are carried forward to the next day with less time spent recapping the previous class. These lessons are ideally aimed at those swimmers who are already in lessons or are familiar with pool settings (ie been to a pool setting more then once and comfortable in water) and looking to improve skills and/or gain more water confidence during these weeklong lessons. Our summer intensive lessons will cover from level 1-level 4.

Our small group numbers in our intensive lessons meaning our swimming instructors can give more attention and deliver a highly motivated swimming lessons to each swimmer. The price for the summer intensive lessons is €70.00 per swimmer per week. Please see date, time and levels covered below.

Important: Please note these summer lessons are not linked with our Shoreline swim school lessons that run throughout the academic year and you are only applying for a week (or more) of summer intensive lessons, this application is not for our Shoreline swimming lessons. Our summer levels also run slightly different then our Shoreline lessons, with a different pool layout and criteria.
