Nuffield Health and the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) have announced an ongoing partnership to deliver ASA services at Nuffield Health Gyms across the country.

Following the ASA’s recent School Swimming Census which discovered that 45 per cent of children aged seven to 11-years old are unable to swim 25m (82ft) unaided, the partnership will support calls to help more primary-school aged children learn to swim in 2015. Nuffield Health aims to teach 10,000 children to swim through the ASA Learn to Swim programme at its sites in 2015. Available to both members and non-members, lessons will be taught with a ratio of one teacher to six children.

The partnership will provide a uniform approach which will see the ASA swim-school programme rolled out across all Nuffield Health centres over the year, along with adult swimming lessons. Nuffield Health will also introduce Swimfit, the ASA’s aqua fitness class, to all of its centres in January.

“Working with Nuffield Health to offer swimming lessons across the country is something which we are extremely excited about,” said Jon Glenn, head of Learn to Swim at the ASA.

“We are dedicated to ensuring more children have the opportunity to learn to swim and are delighted that Nuffield Health is supporting this by making the Learn to Swim pathway available to non-members as well as members.”
