A FAIR START IN SPORT

 

Level Water provides free one-to-one swimming lessons for children with disabilities.  Without our one-to-one disability swimming lessons, most of these children will never learn to swim.

We provide one-to-one lessons until each child has learnt to swim 15m frontcrawl and backstroke.  From this point, each child is safe and independent in the water.  They can join group swimming lessons and we support them to continue swimming and over time join their local competitive swimming club.  We help them for a year and it gives them a lifetime of sport.

We believe in the power of sport.  It’s not just about teaching a child to swim.  Our disability swimming lessons help children with physical or sensory disabilities to develop confidence, self-esteem and resilience.  If we can give a child physical, social and emotional confidence through sport, we can change their trajectory in life.

“The Level Water lessons have given Ella the opportunity to try things she would have struggled to have access to before. Her confidence in the water has grown hugely and it gives her a positive sporting experience which is hard for her to find elsewhere. On holidays she is keener to go swimming which means as a family we can have more shared experiences which is a huge positive.”

Phil, Ella’s Dad.

 

 

Do you believe in the power of sport? 

Sport can have a huge impact on a child's physical and mental confidence but only one in eight disabled children is a member of a sports club. 

With your help, we can teach more children to swim. Fundraising is easier than you think and we will help you every step of the way.

Give your child the gift of swimming

 

Level Water is offering free swimming lessons to children with disabilities. These lessons are for primary aged children with a physical disability or sensory impairment. We do not currently work with children who have learning, social or behavioural difficulties.

We provide small group and one-to-one lessons until your child is ready to join a mainstream class or competitive club.

The teachers we work with receive specialist disability training from the Amateur Swimming Association. They will then deliver your lessons as normal, but we cover the cost until your child is ready to move to group lessons.

  Rebecca Adlington    Double Olympic Gold Medallist     "Every child should leave primary school being able to swim 25 metres. Every child means every child, disabled or not. Without Level Water's work, a lot of disabled children would be left behind, and never have the chance to experience a lifetime of sport."
