Kids Swimming

Swimming is a fantastic way to stay healthy and get fit and in Glasgow we have lots of opportunities


Swimming is a great, full body workout, perfect for any age. The support of the water ensures little impact on the joints, while the resistance helps with toning. Not forgetting of course that it's a valuable life skill and something everyone should learn.

Pre-school Swimming

These small classes, delivered by our expert coaches, involve fun, water based activities that introduce your child to the water and build their confidence while helping with their physical development and flexibility.
