Our coaching sessions run throughout the summer from Trevaunance Cove and during the winter in the pool.

Coaching groups are allocated by school year and are limited to 35 per group for safety reasons. Fees for the year are £100 per child; this includes membership and subs for pool and beach sessions.


Please get in touch with the group contact below BEFORE joining to find out if there is space or to join the waiting list.

  • Reception through Year 7 groups are currently full but you can join a waiting list.
  • We currently have a few spaces for Year 8+.

Expected Standards

We aim to create the most inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone. However, the sea is a potentially dangerous environment and it is important for the safety of all involved that we can rely on participants to be capable of some level of self support.
Our sessions are not a substitute for swimming lessons and we expect and may insist that children (particularly < Y5) attend swimming lessons.
