Swimming at the National Aquatic Centre
The National Aquatic Centre Learn to Swim programme follows the swim development pathway set out by Swim Ireland. Children will participate in 8 competency based levels, moving up a level once learning outcomes have been achieved.
This pathway system is nationally recognised as best practise and will allow each child to progress at their own pace. At the end of the term (min 8 weeks), each child will receive a report card with feedback for their parents and some advice on how to keep developing their swimming.
As well as providing mainstream sessions, we also provide special needs classes tailored to the pupils’ disability. Our Autism classes are especially popular with the sensory benefits of swimming not only provide an important life skill – but enjoyment as well.
The National Aquatic Centre is recognised by the International Federation of Swimming (FINA) as an International quality pool, and is therefore the perfect environment for pupils to learn. The NAC was recently awarded a Gold Award in the prestigious white flag leisure industry audit for accessibility.
Our experienced teachers are all accredited by Swim Ireland, with full Garda Vetting clearance.
