Warwick introducing more inclusive swimming


share close

A new partnership has been launched in Warwick to provide inclusive swimming for children with mobility, visual and hearing disabilities.


Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre, managed by Everyone Active in partnership with Warwick District Council, is hosting the one-to-one sessions every Monday to Thursday, 18:00-19:00, and Saturdays, 12:00-13:00. Additional sessions have already been added following strong demand, and the leisure centre is now looking to train more teachers. 


The swimming programmes will support children with disabilities, between the ages of 4 and 11, to develop essential swimming skills. Everyone Active will run the private swimming lessons and Level Water will provide specialist training for the centre swim teachers.


Everyone Active’s group aquatic and activity manager, Ian Cotton, said: “We are proud to support the fantastic work of Level Water in Warwick District and across the country. Over the next year, we look forward to supporting the swimming development for hundreds of children with disabilities and engaging them with the fun of swimming.


“Inclusivity is one of the Everyone Active core values, so we’re delighted to partner with Level Water who are making a real difference to support children with disabilities.”


Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture Tourism and Leisure Councillor Liam Bartlett added: 


“We very much hope that these lessons will introduce more youngsters to the huge benefits and a lifelong enjoyment of swimming.”
