Wellingborough Amateur Swimming Club

Learn to swim


WASC offer a variety of lessons, ranging from the 'Complete Beginner' progressing through to 'Improvers' and then onto 'Advanced Improvers'.  We teach to a competitive standard so that all our swimmers are qualified to a standard required to enter into the Club, should they wish to do so.

Lessons are held in terms that coincide with the academic term, this is usually around 12 weeks.

All lessons are held at Waendel Leisure Centre, Wellingborough.
