Adult Swimming Lessons at WV Active


Children’s swimming lessons to resume in September

Children's swimming lessons are due to resume from Wednesday 2 December 2020 at both WV Active Central and WV Active Bilston - Bert Williams.

Please read below about how lessons will operate at each of our centres. Many changes have been made to ensure your visit to our centres is as safe as possible for you and your child.

If you have any questions, or do not wish for your child to return to their swimming lessons straight away, please let us know by contacting us here.

If your child's swimming lesson time has changed, you will have been contacted about this already.

When you visit our centres for swimming lessons

  • We are no longer allowing spectators for swimming lessons. Parents must only enter the centre to drop off and collect their child, and must wait outside of the building while the lesson takes place.
  • Parents can bring their child in a maximum of 5 minutes before the lesson to sign in and get ready.
  • Parents will be required to wear face masks at all times when in the building.
  • Children will be required to arrive 'beach ready' to their lesson with their swimwear under their clothes.
  • Please ensure your child has been to the toilet at the start of their lesson. Parents of children under 8 must ensure we have their phone number on our system. This is in case their child needs to use the toilet during their lesson. If this happens, we will contact the parent to come back to the centre to take their child to the toilet. Children over 8 are allowed to use the toilets by themselves.
  • At the end of the swimming lessons, parents can come back into the building to collect their child from the instructor and help them get changed.
  • Parents and children will have a maximum of 15 minutes to use the changing rooms after the swimming lesson so the changing rooms can be cleaned ready for the next swimming lesson.
  • Due to industry guidance, instructors are no longer allowed to teach lessons in the water. All lessons will be taught by the instructor from the side of the pool.
