Have you been meaning to get your kids into a swim team? Swim teams are ideal for parents wishing to introduce their children to competitive swimming. They’re headed by experienced people, who train the kids and enter them into high-level competitions. Many of them have minimum requirements before they admit new members.
If you’re looking for a place that’ll teach your kid how to swim instead, swim schools and clubs may be the right option. We’ll take you through some of the swim programs for kids that we like.

Splash Swim School Splash
If your child is really young – like a year or two, or maybe just six months old – this is easily the best option. They’ll gradually introduce the child to water in a safe environment (with their parents), and teach them how to swim.
All-Star Swim School All-Star
All-Star has designed our program through four key stages of swim development: water safety; learning to swim; stroke development, and technical stroke refinement. Included below are the key elements that will be taught at each stage. However, each of these stages can be tailored to your child’s needs. They will discuss your swimmers current ability, desired outcome for lessons, and depending on their stage of swim ability will do an individual assessment in the pool. This is a great place to have your little one begin swim lessons, or brush up on swimming skills.
