Swimming Lessons in Altrincham

Total Fitness 
Altrincham is a large state of the art centre which houses both a 25m long 1.2m deep main pool and a 12m x 7m 1.2m deep teaching pool.

We're proud to be teaching over 1,000 children to swim each week in Altrincham, giving them the best learn to swim journey possible. There's no overcrowding though, with only 6 children per class, and a learn to swim programme written by Olympic swimmer Becky Adlington, as well as industry professionals extensively experienced in teaching kids to swim!

It's an experience like no other, with the child's progress always first priority.

The changing facilities have recently been refurbished and contain some family changing areas. There is also two hour free parking available in the two floor storey carpark, and car registration numbers must be entered into the machine in the Total Fitness venue on arrival. Parking is opposite Vue Cinema, access to the venue through lift.

The venue has excellent facilities and lessons take place in both swimming pools. There is also a cafe at the venue for snacks and drinks while lessons are running.

Clothing/Jewellery: Comfortable swimming costume or shorts no longer than knee length. All children must wear SwimStars ability related hats (provided on your first lesson, or purchased from our store). Please bring goggles if your child finds using them preferable.

Online tracker: Teachers update the progress portal 3 times a term, and you can check up on their progress at any time by logging into your online account.

What to do when you arrive: Please allow at least 10 minutes from arrival time to the start of your child’s lesson to ensure they have enough time to get changed, use the toilet and be ready on poolside waiting with you at the Parent Drop Off point, clearly marked by the banner on poolside. Once your child is collected by their teacher, you can make your way to the viewing area either in the café, or on poolside. Just before the end of the lesson, parents will make their way to the Parent Pick Up Point (also marked by a banner on poolside) where the teacher will hand the children directly back to you. Teachers are asked not to release children whose parents are not on poolside at the Pick Up Point for the safety of all swimmers.
