The Scheme

Pre-School Discovery Ducklings

The swimmer’s ‘journey through aquatics’ starts with the Discovery Ducklings programme for developing water confidence in early years, encouraged through sessions such as ‘adult and child’ and pre-school sessions.

Levels 1-8

A unique pathway of skills and swimming techniques designed to improve strength and stamina in water. Ensures children progress at their own pace to achieve a high standard of swimming ability.

After level 8 you can proceed onto Bangor Swim Club Dolphins programme or why not try our very own diving programme.  For more information on Dolphins please contact membership.bangorsc@gmail.com or for more details on diving classes and prices check out our diving page or contact Reception 02891 270 271,
