Kids Swimming

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




Swimming is a fantastic way to stay healthy, no matter what age you are and it is never too early to start, so Glasgow Sport provides a programme of lessons for children aged 6 months to 5 years old.

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. It is also a perfect stepping stone to our main Learn to Swim programme​

From Sunday 23 October 2016, Glasgow Sport’s Learn to Swim programme will be going through some exciting changes. Following consultation with neighbouring Local Authorities and the National Governing Body for swimming, Glasgow Sport will now follow the Scottish Swimming Learn to Swim Framework.
