Holme Valley Amateur Swimming Club


Check out our online noticeboard :- http://www.hvasc.org.uk/blog/

Sadly the club has now closed down (as of December 2013). Please see the blog above for further details.

The following is for information only:-

We are a non-competitive club based at Holmfirth Pool and teach to ASA and STA standards on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Once your child progresses to a higher level in addition to the ASA and STA grade work we also introduce Personal Survival, Water Safety and Pool Rescue and many more such awards. These awards can be used to gain cub, scout, brownie and guide swimming badges, and it is also possible that they could be used in the Duke of Edinburgh schemes.

Our emphasis is on fun and learning rather than just performance, and we want everyone to enjoy their swimming.

We are able to take children aged from 5½ to 16 of various swimming abilities. The half hour sessions are 7.00-7.30, 7.30-8.00 and 8.00-8.30 and the group that is allocated will be dependent upon the child's swimming ability.

We also offer Adult swimming from 8.30-9.00, these sessions can take the form of swims to improve stroke, individual teaching should an adult wish to improve or brush up on a particular stroke and also therapeutic exercises.

Our fees are posted here :- http://www.hvasc.org.uk/blog/
