Sink or Swim are a swimming school based in Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate.

SinkorSwim believe for in  enjoyment and good results the best way to teach is in small groups of four. This way all demonstrations are seen clearly, and there is sufficient teaching time for each child to give any extra help they may need and the class is large enough to create competition and fun class games/ activities.

With ASA, N.P.L.Q and STA qualified teachers present in the water your child can learn in a relaxed safe environment, while learning a life skill your child will build water confidence co-ordination, stamina, muscle and motor skills.

Our professional approach goes beyond standard training techniques to deliver education and water based skills that equip new swimmers for a lifetime of safe and enjoyable swimming.
