About Liverpool Penguins

Liverpool Penguin Swimming Club’s IOS Level One and Level Two volunteers teach and coach children from the age of five (depending on ability) in at a number of Liverpool swimming facilities: University of Liverpool Sports and Fitness Centre, Everton Park, Kirkby Leisure Centre, Liverpool Aquatic Centre (Wavertree) and Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park (Huyton).

To join, your child will be asked to come for a swimming trial in order to assess their ability. We are looking at their basic strokes to see what stage they are currently at and to see if we will be able to develop them into competitive swimmers.

Teaching fees are £28 per month, coaching is £34 per month. Additionally their is an annual membership fee on joining and renewed each September. This includes an ASA membership fee, which all swimmers require for insurance purposes. More advanced swimmers who are taking part in galas will have an additional annual category 2 ASA registration fee.

Initially you will need a swimming costume; girls one-piece, boys briefs or jammers (no swimming shorts allowed). Anyone swimming with long hair needs a swimming cap. Goggles are also needed. Once your child enters coaching additional equipment may be required but this will be discussed nearer the time.
