Sandwell Valley Multisport Programme

“Thank you so much for running these sessions. When I started, I was very nervous as I am not a confident swimmer and had no idea what to expect, but everyone had made me feel very relaxed. [...] I found the cold water, the swimming and the nature was really helpful, it was great to take time away from all the stress that was going on at home and at work and I feel that these sessions really helped with my outlook on life. I would love to keep in touch with the team and would love to be involved in any future activities”

Sandwell Valley Multisport Programme

The Sandwell Valley Multisport Programme was born out of the success of the Dosthill Open Water Swimming Programme, which Living Well offered in 2021.

This programme is tailored for pupils Year 3 and above from the Sandwell area, looking to get active and improve their overall well-being. The programme is free and will include the provision of fruit and hot & cold drinks, wetsuits, googles, nose clips and tow floats.

What time does the program start?

The programme will run from the 5th of June until the 25th of September, starting at 6.45 pm. The warmer weather will provide the right atmosphere for the highlight of the programme - the open-water swimming. Qualified open-water swimming coaches will be on site at Swan Lake and are trained to support for any skill level, prior swimming experience is not needed. Alongside the open water swimming sessions at Swan Lake, outdoor sports and games will be hosted by our trained session leaders.
