Why choose Bury Leisure?

The Bury Leisure Swimming Academy runs a structured swimming and water safety programme created by the Swimming Teachers' Association (STA), one of the largest swim teaching and lifesaving organisations. All our teachers hold professional qualifications and have a passion for teaching.

Why learn to swim?

  • To be safe and confident around water.
  • To keep the heart and lungs healthy.
  • To improve strength and flexibility.
  • To increase stamina and help improve balance and posture.
  • To provide challenges and rewards, which helps with self-confidence.

Being able to swim also supports taking part in other sports and activities such as kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving, surfing and yachting.

Our learn to swim programme is available at each of our main sports centres.
