Now the kids have gone back to school time to explore what swim classes have also returned!
Swimming is such a key skill for any child to learn and finding the right teacher for you is vital to successful learning. In York we have a huge variety of classes at different venues, dates and times so you are sure to find one that works for your family. We wanted to highlight some NEW things that were going on in the world of swimming classes this September so listed below are the swimming classes who have something NEW to offer and wanted to let you know.
Some have made changes that take effect in September and some have new times, venues, owners or days available.
Have a look below and contact the providers directly if you want to book in with them or try them out…
Baby Swimmers and Swimmers Academy
Rachel mum of Adam.
We began lessons when Adam was just 3 months old. I was worried at first that he might cry throughout the lesson, particularly when going underwater, but I needn’t have worried – he loved it! He is constantly smiling as we sing songs and sway through the water. We are now on our 3rd term with Baby Swimmers and are still enjoying it. I have returned to work and swimming is the only class we have continued with. Adam has progressed brilliantly and I find myself beaming with pride after every lesson. He can now hold onto the side by himself and is even attempting to climb out which is pretty amazing to say he is only 11 months old and can’t even walk yet! Massive thanks to Baby Swimmers.
Baby Swimmers & Swimmers Academy offer swimming classes for babies from 6 weeks to teens in York, Stamford Bridge, Pocklington, Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate. A chance for you and your little one to spend quality bonding time together as well as learn water safety skills or for the older ones to learn or improve their swimming technique.

We want every child to love swimming, respect the water and swim beautifully. That’s why our standards are the highest and our approach is unique.
At Puddle Ducks, our highly trained and qualified teachers are experts at identifying children’s levels of ability and adapting activities to the individual, nurturing confidence and encouraging natural ability.
Your child is truly at the centre of what we do – our teachers are especially trained to identify your little one’s own stage of development and confidence. They will then tailor the activities to suit your child, ensuring that they are happy, developing at their own pace and gaining confidence.
We never stand still – our programmes and teacher training are continuously developed in the latest techniques, ensuring our teaching standards remain the highest.
We believe in giving your child choice – if your little one isn’t ready to do an activity, we listen to them and adapt what they are doing to something they are comfortable with. We want to build their confidence, not break it.
Providing true value – we know you see Puddle Ducks as an investment in your child’s future. Our lessons are worth every penny and we are continually told so by our customers.
Flexibility – if you cannot attend a lesson, just let us know in your online account and we give you a voucher to book an alternative class. Vouchers are valid for 6 months giving you lots of flexibility.
We run classes 7 days a week at the following locations in and around York: Kilima Hotel, New Earswick, ROKO Health Club, Archbishop Holgate’s School, Willow Lodge (Bubwith), The Crown Hotel (Boroughbridge), Energise hydrotherapy pool and Robert Wilkinson.
We also run Aquanatal classes, so you can start your journey with Puddle Ducks before your baby arrives!

NEW 2 Year Plus where parents get in the pool with their children and have fun together
We’ll teach you to teach your little one to swim. from lesson one we’ll get your little one used to the sensation of water, developing their natural instincts and transforming these into core aquatic skills. By the end of our programme your little one will be swimming freely using different strokes and be able to keep themselves safe in and around water.
We work closely with Swim England, the governing body and we’ve woven their learn to swim framework through our programme. So you’ll be simply amazed at the progress your little one makes. And not only will they be able to swim independently and have learnt a skill for life – they will have grown in confidence too.
Throughout our programme we use lots of song, games, toys and sensory activities suitable to each child’s stage of development, ensuring both you and your little one are having lots of fun whilst having precious time together and developing new skills.
Our New Term starts next w/c 6th September and we are so excited to welcome lots of new faces to our classes. One of the most exciting parts of our Autumn Term is our long awaited return to the lovely toasty hydrotherapy pool at Energise in Acomb where babies can swim with us from birth!
