If you're asking if you should get your child swimming the answer is a resounding YES!

children swimming

There are three main reasons why your child should swim:

* 1 out of 3 kids say swimming is their favourite family activity!

* It can help save their life! Sadly, drowning is still the third most common form of accidental death for children.

* It opens up a whole new world. Just imagine, your child will be able to splash around with family and friends, dream of becoming the next Olympic champion or just have a fantastic time on holiday getting in the pool or sea.

And don't worry about learning to swim being complicated. It's a natural step in a child's development. Babies are in fluid in the womb for nine months so are comfortable in the water almost from the minute they are born as long as they feel safe. The best way to make sure your son or daughter has confidence in the water is to get them in the pool as soon as possible.

Aerobics

aquafit

A great option for those who need to improve their cardiovascular fitness, there's an aerobics class for everyone, whether you're a beginner or an exercise fan. Instructors know that warm up and down is important so you'll be led through the class without risking injury, and though classes are usually aimed at one particular level, the movements can be easily adjusted to suit your own ability.

As well as traditional aerobics classes, there are step classes, which burn calories more quickly, and aqua aerobics (aquafit), which is ideal for those who are overweight or who have joint problems, since it is low impact.

PoolView System in the Main Pool

children swimming

As part of our commitment to customer safety a PoolView underwater CCTV has been installed in the diving pit at Halifax Swimming Pool.

The system comprises of 4 underwater CCTV cameras. The cameras monitor activity beneath the surface of the water and feed the views directly to a screen on the lifeguard chair. This allows lifeguards to quickly detect anyone in difficulty in the diving pit, even if they are at the bottom of the pool.

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is in use throughout Calderdale and a code of practice ensures that data protection principles are complied with.
