Learning to swim is fun and we love what we do. At the YMCA swim school, we pride ourselves on turning beginners in to competent swimmers and aim to nurture a life long love of the water.

Our swimming lessons go beyond stroke correction so you can be sure that your child has the skills to keep them safe in, and around water.

At the YMCA Swim School, children can explore, learn and progress at their own pace as swimming lessons are individually structured to match the child’s level. This way they can creatively explore and practice skills safely, whilst developing self-confidence and self-esteem.
