It’s never too early to start!
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.
Adult and Child Classes
Classes offer children aged from 6 months to 3 years a valuable water based experience and provide simulating challenges to the child and adult through a series of fun activities. Adults will learn how to help their child to build up water confidence and will be able to teach their child the basic water skills guided by our qualified early childhood swim teachers.
Starfish will involve fun, water based activities to introduce children to the water and build their confidence while helping with their physical development and flexibility. Children will development basic water skills such as pool side entries, submerging, push & glide and travelling in the water through basic kicking skills. Finally the children will be able to travel on front and back for over 2 metres and can change the travel direction in the water.
