Learn a lifesaving skill and gain a sport for life

We all have a relationship with water, and you are never too old or too young to learn to swim.

At Swim Ireland, we support the industry by educating facilities and teachers in best practices for all ages and through our two big learn to swim initiatives - the Swim For A Mile Challenge for adults and the Swim Ireland Learn to Swim Programme for children.

Children's Learn To Swim

Children's Learn To Swim

Swim Ireland Accredited Swim Schools are located across the island of Ireland. These Swim Schools deliver the Swim Ireland Learn to Swim Programme for children.

This Programme will empower and inspire your child to challenge themselves on their own personal journey of learning to swim. It is delivered through structured play, ensuring the lessons are well planned with clear learning outcomes whilst engaging your child in fun and relevant activities.
