Alpha Swimming Lessons

Swimming Lessons for children with disabilities in Trafford started many years ago and were secured through a partnership between Manchester United Football Club and Urmston Leisure Centre. That partnership today is stronger than ever and we continue to use the fantastic facility at Carrington to provide lessons.

Over the years, the programme has grown and now operates on a Wednesday and Thursday evening 4-7pm. All children who attend Carrington lessons are taught on either a 1-1, or a small group basis, dependent on the needs of the child. All teachers are Lifeguard trained and teach from in the water.
