SDSG meets every Saturday morning from 10.30 to 12.30, at Hind Leys swimming pool, Forest Road, Shepshed, LE12 9DB. There is no fee for membership but those who attend pay: £1 for those age up to 18, £2.50 for those over 18.
Members come to enjoy our regular swimming sessions which include a variety of different programmes. These include fun swims where we put our collection of large and smaller floats in the water for everyone to enjoy:
Lane swimming sessions for those who benefit from a safer environment in which to swim or who simply want to take advantage of the opportunity to swim lengths; and
AquaFit is pool-based exercise aimed at all levels of fitness.
Galas and other sports and social events also take place periodically, including kayaking in our own kayaks, summer BBQs and Christmas parties.
We run a number of initiatives to encourage members efforts and promote achievements, including Swim2Fitness certificates which celebrate the total distance swum over a period of time and encourages general fitness.
Through these activities, we aim to provide opportunities for anyone with a physical, sensory or learning disability, injury or medical condition, to improve their quality of life and increase physical mobility and confidence. We also aim to expand our members' experiences through friendship, companionship and enjoyment of each other's company.
