LM Little Boy With Goggles

Active Nation’s Yarborough Leisure Centre in Lincoln is on a mission to persuade the nation to be active and they believe the sooner you can start the better!

They take great pride in their reputation as the city’s most popular choice for swim lessons, with more than 1,000 people – from newborn babies, to children, young divers and adults – attending lessons every week at the Riseholme Road venue from just £5 per lesson!

The brilliant news is that all children on the swim school also get to enjoy FREE casual swimming – that way they can practice everything they learn in the lessons.

Active Nation’s Donna Taylor said: “Teaching people to swim and be safe in the water is a great privilege and something that we all enjoy. We are very lucky to have an experienced team, many of our instructors have been teaching children to swim for more than 10 years and some have been doing it for 30 years, simply because they love it!”

For parents with young children the swim school offers the following lessons where children have great fun in the water – working towards the ASA Little Duckling awards.

Little Fins – classes for parents with newborn babies up to 1 year (term time only)

Big Fins – for mums and dads with toddlers aged 12-24 months (term time only)

Parent and Toddler lessons for youngsters aged from 18 months right up until they join the swim school

For children aged 4+:

Children progress through the ASA stages from 1 to 10 – developing their stroke techniques, stamina, making friends and learning how to have fun and be safe in the water.

Complementing the swim school is Studio3 – a trailblazing new initiative in the city to help get young people active, enjoying exercise and having fun. Since the Studio launched in 2016 it has received Sportivate funding and has exciting plans in place after being awarded a brilliant Big Lottery grant that will help to expand the existing timetable.

This includes a SoftPlay inflatable for under 5s that runs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (10am-11am and 11am-midday) and Imagination Play for under 5s on Tuesdays (10.30am-11.30am) with themes including bubbleology, craft, music and so much more.


Evening activities for older siblings include TryRugby, Junior Dance, Stop, Drop, Move! fitness based classes and Family Ride studio cycling for the whole family (11+)! Check out the timetable here: http://activenation.org.uk/venues/yarborough-leisure-centre/studio-3/

All sessions cost £2 or £1 for Studio Cycling. You can also pick up a junior membership for just £10 per month that allows unlimited access to the classes and casual swimming (all ages) and also includes access to the gym for those aged 11+.

While they’re getting active you can sign up for one of your favourite classes – with more than 100 to choose from each week, or you can enjoy a swim or workout in the 2-storey gym.
