Fintastic summer swims

Active kids

Dive in to a summer of fun, as Calderdale swimming pools team up with Disney for some special Finding Dory swimming sessions. 

The swim sessions, inspired by the new Disney film Finding Dory, are co-created with the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) and run from 25 July until 21 August. 

There are lots of sessions to choose from at Brighouse, Halifax and Sowerby Bridge pools, and they’re suitable for families with children aged 3-9. 

The hour-long sessions, led by trained instructors, will feature in-water storytelling for the whole family, and also teach children key swimming skills as they have a whale of a time with Dory and friends.  

There are also some great Disney prizes available – the first 50,000 children across the UK that attend three sessions will receive a Finding Dory branded swimming bag. All you need to do is collect a loyalty card from reception at your first session which must then be stamped on three separate occasions to qualify for the bag.

You could also win a Finding Dory prize bundle worth £250 when you upload a photo from our Disney photo stand via Instagram using #JustKeepMoving. Ten winners will be selected every week, winning a prize bundle of Finding Dory products.

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Communities, Cllr Susan Press, said: 

“We know it can be hard to keep children entertained throughout the six-week school holidays, so it’s great that Calderdale pools are getting involved with the Finding Dory swim sessions, combining fun Disney themed activities with key swimming skills. 

“The fun family sessions are suitable for children aged 3-9, but there are lots of other fantastic activities going on at Calderdale fitness centres for all ages. Visit for more information.”
