We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Aspire Centre – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Essential Information:

  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with an Eco NappyWrap & Liner or a disposable swim nappy underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not potty/toilet trained. You can buy one of our great value Swimming Kits which contain everything you need for your swim lesson.
  • For babies and children under 2 years old a Baby Wetsuit or Thermal Top will be required.
  • We recommend bringing a baby change mat if your baby is young and flip flops for yourself and Swim Academy children to prevent slipping.
  • All Swim Academy Children must wear swim hats in the pool. You can find these plus our range of goggles and other Swim Accessories here.
  • All swimmers must shower prior to their lessons starting.
  • Pushchairs, scooters & bikes must be left in the designated area by the entrance.
  • You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page
