Swimming Pool


The Cofield Swimming Pool at Sport Sheffield is a 33m indoor heated pool.

With 6 lanes available for lane or general swimming and sauna and steam rooms on poolside for relaxation its everything you need to keep relax and stay fit.

Changing rooms include lockers and hairdryers. Access for people with a disability is made easier with convenient parking and exclusive changing accommodation.

The swimming pool is usually around 28 degrees providing a good balance between those wishing to swim lengths and those wishing to swim at a more leisurely pace.

The swimming pool is supervised at all times by our team of qualified pool lifeguards who all hold the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification and attend regular staff training to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.

As with all our facilities our pool is available to everyone including staff, students and the general public. 

Adult swimming lessons are unable to return before Step 3 on the government's roadmap.

As soon as we have confirmation that group adult activity can continue indoors we will restart adult lessons. To join the waiting list for more information please complete the form here

2021 Dates TBC

We have a variety of lessons available to all different abilities so read on to find out more!

Swim For Fitness  

Adults are able to swim 2 x 33m lengths without needing to stop and can perform all strokes to a good ability.   

Sessions will include stroke technique and development, drills for all strokes, dives, turns, and distance swims.   

Beginners 1   

Adults may have never entered a swimming pool before, or may have lost all confidence. If the adult can move in the water, but with aid, it would be better to start in this class and then progress quickly.   

Sessions will include basic buoyancy and floating, introduction to strokes with aids, safe entries and exits into the pool.   

Beginners 2   

Adults may have moved from Beginners 1 after completing a previous block of lessons. If adults have had lessons before and feel comfortable getting into the pool again they can join this group.   

Sessions will include travel using all strokes unaided, building confidence in deeper water and progression onto full strokes (arms, legs and breathing).   


Adults will be able to travel 10-20 metres without stopping but may only be able to perform one stroke.  An understanding of all strokes is helpful.  

The lessons will take place at the following times:               

Beginners 1 : 18:15-18:45 & 19.15-19.45

Beginners 2 : 18:45- 19:15 & 19.45- 20.15

Improvers : 18:15- 18:45 & 19:15- 19:45

Swim for Fitness: 18:45- 19:15 & 19:45- 20:15
