Courses and lessons

Salt Ayre offers a selection of courses, lessons and training sessions for children and adults who are looking to learn a new skill. Set in our fantastic facilities, our sessions are run by friendly instructors who are there to support you every step of the way.


Gymnastics courses

Gymnastics classes at Salt Ayre are aimed at children aged from pre-school age upwards, and run on a course basis. We currently have over 300 children (girls and boys) enrolled onto our courses which include movement, music, gymnastics, exercise games, listening and co-operation.

Each child progresses at their own pace in a non-threating, warm and nurturing environment. Older children are able to work towards a nationally recognised British Gymnastics certificate. 

The children are coached by a group of enthusiastic and fully qualified gymnastics instructors, and assistant helpers, led by a senior coach.


Swimming lessons

Our swimming lesson programme follows the Amateur Swimming Association's national plan for teaching swimming - a nationally recognised programme covering all aspects of swimming from non-swimmer to competition level.

Over 1000 children and adults are involved in the programme, which operates at our community pools in Heysham, Carnforth and at Salt Ayre Leisure Centre.

Please note that children must be 5 years old or attending school in the term when they will be 5 years old to access the ASA programme.


Lifeguard training

Lifeguard training takes place at Salt Ayre Sports Centre throughout the year. Individuals attending the one week course will receive a national pool lifeguard qualification; with this qualification you will be able to work in the sport and recreation inducstry as a professional lifeguard.
