Crystal Leisure Centre - Swimming Lessons

We offer a range of swimming lessons during term-time in the safe environment of our 25 metre teaching pool.

All instructors are fully qualified, experienced swimming teachers, who constantly encourage and help in the water to reassure all children and swimmers.

Some of our pupils have progressed to represent local Swimming Clubs in particular the Stourbridge Swimming Club which meets at the centre on a regular basis to train. Several have even further developed to county level and achieved National medals.

*Please note due to the popularity and the success of the Swimming Lesson Programme at the Crystal Leisure Centre, a waiting list is often in operation for lessons.
