Total Swimming Make a Splash in Camden this Summer Term
Total Swimming kicks of its latest two year contract delivering the Mayor of London's Make a Splash programme in Camden from next Monday.
Since 2009, the Make a Splash programme, which is also funded by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA), has taught over 17,000 people across London to swim by taking mobile pools to locations across the capital.
Make a Splash typically targets areas of socio-economic deprivation, groups less likely to learn to swim, and places where there is a lack of access to permanent public swimming pools.
To kick off the 2013-2015 cycle of Make a Splash, Total Swimming returns to Maria Fidelis Catholic Lower School in Camden from 22nd April, where last year lessons in the mobile pool taught over 1,000 local people to swim. This year the target is 1,200 across both the school and community swimming programmes.
For the first time, Total Swimming is managing all of the bookings for the community programme and providing all of the swimming teachers - although some of the teachers will be familiar faces to those who attended last year's project at Maria Fidelis!
As a result of special funding by the London Borough of Camden, all of the swimming lessons are being provided free of charge for both the school and community swimming programmes. There are also sessions available for community groups.
For people who would like to take advantage of these free swimming sessions, booking can be done quickly and easily online through the Total Swimming booking system, which is accessible from here.
The pool remains at Maria Fidelis until 11th July and will be officially launched with a very special guest on 30th May.
The next Make a Splash project, commencing in June, will be announced in the coming weeks and bring outdoor swimming over the summer to a lucky London community.
