East Ham Leisure Centre Swim School Timetable Changes - March 2017
As part of an efficiency project at East Ham Leisure Centre we are removing the 5 minute breaks in between swimming lessons starting from Monday 6 March 2017.
This decision has been made to improve the quality of our swimming lesson service and to generate more classes for our pupils.
In reducing the 5 minute gaps in between lessons we are going to create more classes which are smaller in group size. This will enable us to give your child/children more one to one time with our qualified and experienced coaches to help them develop new swimming skills and gain confidence in the water. Our coaches will be able to assess what skills need to be developed with greater insight, and will give greater assurance and development to all participants who take part in our swimming lessons. The new schedule can be seen here.
East Ham Leisure Centre provides state-of-the-art fitness equipment, professional level swimming pools and exciting activity areas. Here are the great facilities that you can enjoy as a member:
• 60 cardiovascular stations, including treadmills, crosstrainers and exercise bikes with the most sophisticated options designed to provide an effective total-body workout.
