The Academy is an exciting new venture for Frome Swimming Club.
Under the management of our former Learn to Swim Coordinator, Sharon Smith it provides competitive development and technique work from an early age in a fun friendly atmosphere.
With small classes children are allowed to explore their natural ability in the water and progress is monitored to ensure that the foundations are in place for children to advance and improve thus preparing them for competitive swimming should they wish to follow the pathway to Stages 8-10 of the NPTS and beyond.
Classes for children aged 4-7 who love being in the water.
