Comprehensive learn-to-swim programs for children of all ages & skill levels
The time to brave the water and learn how to swim confidently is now! Swimming is an essential skill to learn, and there is no age too young to start. The Y offers safe, fun and educational swimming lessons for all ages starting from babies six months old, right through to school children.
Developing the right reflexes and muscle movements as well as learning the swimming strokes and good technique is essential for water safety. Here at the Y, our qualified Austswim coaches have taught thousands of infants and children swimming in our exciting Learn to Swim program. Through fun games, interesting activities and experienced instruction, YMCA Learn to Swim builds children’s confidence in the water while also allowing kids to have fun and make friends.
Kids Learn to Swim is run in a 10-week term of lessons following Queensland school term dates or in school holiday blocks.
Help your baby or toddler become more comfortable and confident in the water through our Infant Swimming Program. Run by our specially qualified and trained Infant Swimming Teachers, lessons focus on water safety skills, breath control skills, buoyancy and floatation, correct holds, kicking and submersions. Together with you by their side during lessons, we’ll help build your child’s fine motor skills and foot/hand/eye co-ordination. Learn the foundations of water safety and awareness in our Infant Program.
