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

At Glasgow Sport we have classes for children as young as 6 months in our 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.

Glasgow 2014 and My Swimming Sessions

We've been working hard over the last few months to ensure our customers have every opportunity to continue their healthy lifestyle with the Glasgow Club while the Commonwealth Games are on.

We've made some slight changes to the timetables to ensure that your child can still enjoy the same level of sports coaching in the period leading up to the Games and can get back to their chosen sport as soon as possible thereafter.

We’ve produced a guide with more information, which also gives you the opportunity to **WIN TICKETS** to this years Gymnastics World Cup at the Emirates Arena.
