YMCA Fleetwood to Provide Free Swimming for Local Children

YMCA Fleetwood Health and Fitness Centre have secured a grant to provide free swimming for children throughout the school holidays until February 2018.

Free swimming is available during public swimming sessions (view our timetable here) for children aged 16 and under throughout school holiday periods up to and including February Half Term 2018. Proof of residency at an FY7 postcode e.g. recent utility bill or driving licence is required. Any children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a paying parent or guardian aged 18 or over at a ratio of 2:1 as per normal swimming.

Steve Mullins, YMCA Fleetwood General Manager, said, “YMCA Fleetwood are extremely delighted to receive further funding following the success of the initiative last summer. Our aim is to encourage more children in Fleetwood to participate and get active through swimming.”

All children wishing to take part in the free sessions must complete a registration form before participating.  Forms are available from YMCA Fleetwood. In order to gain entry, all forms must be signed by a parent or guardian aged 18 or over.

All children entering free swimming will be given a membership card which they must bring every time they wish to swim for free.  Without this card they will not be allowed into the pools until their parent or guardian completes another registration form.

Free swimming will operate exactly as a paid session and therefore does not include fun swims, holiday activities or entry to Marine Splash.

Our maximum bather loads will be adhered to.  Due to the expectancy that the centre will be busy you may find that you will need to wait before being allowed entry to the pools.

Please note that our existing operating procedures cannot be altered. Current Easter holiday period ends Monday 17th April 

We hope you make the most of this wonderful opportunity at YMCA Fleetwood! We look forward to seeing you there!
