St Richard’s Pool

    St Richard’s is a new pool to Springboard. We are building our Staff Team there until we are teaching every day and all day Saturday. For the moment, we have a limited schedule whilst we find and train exceptional teachers. We would rather offer a smaller schedule with excellent teaching than a larger program with inadequate teaching.

    Foundation swimmers: i.e. children over 3 years of age who cannot yet swim 5m on front and back crawl with good technique and correct breathing technique on front crawl. Click here for more details
