There's a Y Swim School near you

We believe every child deserves to feel safe in and around water

Our celebrated kids swimming classes are here for kids of all ages and skill levels

Whatever your child’s experience with swimming, The Y (formerly YMCA)’s school age classes are equipped to encourage all young people to get confident in the water and develop their swimming skills. With qualified aquatic instructors leading groups with low student-to-teacher ratios, all young swimmers get the chance to push themselves and have fun doing it!

Kids Swimming Lessons

Our programme:

Classes are designed to be ability appropriate – so everyone can feel confident in their ability to learn at the pace that works for them, rather than feeling thrown in the deep end. All participants will learn valuable water safety skills, as well as a variety of techniques – including freestyle, back stroke, breast stroke and butterfly.

A dedicated pool for learning:

All of our aquatic facilities have dedicated teaching pools, so can take place in an uninterrupted environment that lends itself to learning. And with The Y swimming classes for kids available seven days a week, there’s a time to suit even the busiest family!
