SLT Swim Academy for ages 6 weeks - 3 years

Starfish is an innovative series of 6 progressive awards designed to introduce babies and the accompanying adult to a water adventure where water confidence and safety skills are introduced. We split the series in to 2 stages which are the STArfish Babes class for babies age 6 week to 12 months and the STArfish Tots which are 12 months – 3 years.

Our classes are a structured 30-minute class which consists of supporting/encouraging the learner to travel through the water, building water confidence and submersion if you feel comfortable. As and when the learner turns 3 there is a pathway for them to progress on to STAnley awards where the learner goes in to the pool by themselves and the swimming teacher goes in to the water with the group. 



Please speak to a member of the team at reception who can help advise on availability and book your place on the programme available at: Langley Swimming Centre or Portway Lifestyle Centre in Oldbury, Haden Hill Leisure Centre in Cradley Heath, Smethwick Swimming Centre, Tipton Leisure Centre or Wednesbury Leisure Centre.


SLT Swim Academy monthly direct debit payments are based on 50 weeks to take into account the Christmas closure period each year. The price also takes into account sickness and holiday absences as credits are not issued.
