 We have a few spaces now in the beginners groups: 
 Thursdays at 4.45pm; Saturdays at 4.00pm; Sundays at 4.00pm 

The Dolphins have a policy of continuous movement between groups throughout the year as performances improve.  Most groups take Personal Survival awards at their level of ability.

Cost per session held at £4.00 (January 2014 onwards)

All Dolphins groups operate according to ability and not age and I will always listen to appeals for "promotion".   Please let me know if you are unhappy with any of the arrangements; I try to be as accommodating as possible - but can't always be perfect!

As a general recommendation, children progress noticeably better if they have two sessions a week - it gives them less time to forget in between!  A very few can benefit from more if it appears beneficial to their development
