Discovery Ducklings off to a great start!

The brand new ASA Discovery Duckling sessions are now underway at Pershore Leisure Centre!

The first session took place on Monday 14th March with the experienced instructor, Gwen.

Parents arrived with their children and enjoyed a brief introduction to the concept of Discovery Duckling before venturing into the water, with almost all of the children experiencing the pool for the very first time.

Parents and children then participated in various activities, allowing them to grow familiar with being in the water together. Everybody settled in well and the overall confidence increased as the 30 minute session progressed.

Gwen, the instructor for Discovery Duckling said “A brand new ASA award aimed at babies and toddlers is a wonderful idea. We hope that over the next 10 weeks we can give these children and their parents an increased confidence of being in the pool together”.

A photo album from the first session is available here.


Discovery Duckling sessions run at Pershore Leisure Centre on Mondays 1:30 – 2:00pm and 2:00 – 2:30pm.
