Strive Junior Swim offers an alternative environment for children and young people to develop their love for being in the water.  We deliver non-competitive 'aqua lessons', with an emphasis on growing confidence, competence, fitness and safety in the water. 

Our approach

We have designed an approach to teaching younger ages (from 6 up to 16) across our 4 pillars of aqua literacy: confidence, competence, fitness and safety. We draw on a range of aqua sports including water polo, surfing, Life Saving, triathlon and competition swimming to help our swimmers grow into strong, skilful and confident Islanders who understand how to be safe and have fun in water, whatever their age. In the summer term, our swimmers are given the opportunity to take their skills into the open water and experience the fun and joy of these environments. 

Our coaches

Our Junior coaching team are Level 2 Swim England teachers, Level 2 British Triathlon Coaches and RLSS Rookie Lifeguard Instructors. Beyond the qualifications, we are also swim enthusiasts and water babies who are passionate about helping others experience the power of being in the water.


Strive bathers & jammers now available

Entry requirements

All children must be aged 6 and above and already be able to swim 2 lengths of a 25m pool with no aids. They must also be comfortable spending time out of their depth and in the deeper end of a swimming pool.

Children joining more experienced sessions (typically aged 10+) should already be swimming front crawl competently for at least 4 lengths, and have a strong grasp of all other strokes too.
