Swim Your Way
Our Swim Your Way campaign is here, and we're focused on helping you get swimming.
Following £211,000 National Lottery funding through Sport England's Swim Local pilot, our campaign aims to highlight the variety of different sessions you can access to get swimming again and help people find the right session for them.
We offer a huge range of different swim sessions across the city, ranging from the beginners Learn to Swim programme, through to fun Splash sessions for children, SwimTag, aquatic classes and even Open Water Swimming at the Helly Hansen Watersports Centre.
The campaign will feature a variety of activities, which includes the appointment of 3 Swim Activators. The swim activators will research the barriers preventing people from going swimming, highlighting the variety of swimming sessions available across Salford and ultimately help people get back into the pool
Plus we want you to share your experience of getting back in the pool using the hashtag #SwimYourWay.
Meet our Swim Activators
Our swim activators work across the city. So if you want to get back in the pool, or indeed start to swim for the first time, then our swim activators are on hand to support you, answer any queries, and help you find the right swim session for you.
