Swimming @ Methodist College & INST RBAI Belfast
We hope you can join us at Methodist College or INST on Saturdays.
Methodist College is just opposite the Ulster Museum on the Malone Road and close to the City hospital on the Lisburn Road and is therefore easy to access. There is plenty of parking available on site within the College grounds close to the swimming pool. At present building work is taking place at McArthur Hall so we would ask our parents to use the alternative carpark behind the Chapel or behind the sports hall.
Inst RBAI is situated at College Square East, not far from the Grand Opera House and next to Jury's Inn Hotel. Parking is available right beside the swimming pool in the school grounds. Parents can sit on the poolside throughout the class.
Our Parents are welcome on the poolside in INST as well as Methody where they can see the action. This not only allows you to see what we are teaching but also how we teach. You can then continue and support your child if you take them swimming at your local pool.
Methodist College Pool
Methody's pool is almost 25 meters long which allows our swimmers to really develop from beginner right through to our Improver classes. The pool is roughly four foot deep throughout which makes it excellent for our swimming programme. The temperature is around 30C which suits all our swimmers.
INST RBAI Pool
INST's pool is 25 meters long. It is over 1 meter in depth at the shallow end progressively getting deeper to 2.5 meters at the deep end. We use platforms to ensure all swimmers can enjoy the pool. Advanced classes in this location will incorporate tumble turns, dives, as well as some lifesaving and water polo skills. The temperature is usually around 29C which suits all our swimmers.
