NOW CLOSED: Win swimming lessons for your child worth £300 with Swim England

Swimming is an important life-skill for children and adults alike – not to mention one of the most fun. To encourage more people to join in, Swim England, the national governing body for swimming in England, is offering a host of fantastic prizes, including swimming lessons worth £300 and a Learn to Swim starter pack

Learning to swim is a fantastic experience that opens up a world of possibilities and encourages children and adults to become safer in the water. The Swim England Learn to Swim Programme is trusted by swimming teachers, swimming pools and parents across the country.

The Learn to Swim Awards give children (and adults) rewards in the form of certificates and badges, to keep them motivated whilst learning. We all know how much more motivated we are to learn when we receive recognition.

Swim England recommends children should receive three rewards for their swimming each year, with many bonus and additional rewards available to support this, such as the Rainbow Distance Awards celebrating your children swimming a specific distance.

Like many children, Olympian Adam Peaty was scared of the water as a child. He didn't like the feeling of not being able to touch the ground. Through the fun of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme and working towards the Swim England Learn to Awards, he grew to love it. He found his place in the water on the way to becoming a Gold medal winning Olympian at the 2016 Rio Games.

Whether your little one is already learning to swim or is about to start, Swim England has a dedicated website to help parents understand all about the Learn to Swim Programme, with blogs from other parents and key info to support you on the way to your children being safe in the water.

To help your child find their place in the water, Swim England is offering one lucky Mumsnetter £300 worth of swimming lessons, plus a Learn to Swim starter pack (RRP £10). Two runners up will each receive a term of swimming lessons (worth up to £150) plus a Learn to Swim starter pack (RRP £10).
