The new female only swims at John Charles Centre for Sport will continue on both a Tuesday and a Thursday 1-2pm.  At hand will be a Leeds Girls Can ambassador to offer support at each session.  Sessions don’t guarantee a female lifeguard (which can’t be offered currently), but community focus groups with BAME women have shared that they were largely comfortable with a male lifeguard if they could take through to the curtained off diving area dressing gowns or towels before entering the water discreetly.  The diving pool will be raised to be shallow depth.

Please do help share with women across the Inner South as it is something that has been asked for by local women over a long time.  The cheapest way to access is via a Leeds Card Extra (for those on benefits) LeedsCard

What’s different?

  • Leeds Girls Can Ambassador Naz (qualified swim teacher) will be present on poolside to answer any questions or concerns in relation to the session.
  • The pool and viewing area will be curtained off/closed for privacy.
  • Please feel free to bring along your robes/towels to wear to the poolside.
  • During the half term you can bring your children.
