The Glenview Swim Academy prides itself on offering the highest quality swimming instruction in a fun and safe environment.
Our kids learn swimming the fun way and can proudly say they learned how to swim with the Glenview! For members and non-members alike, we provide an advanced structure that will excite your child and allow them to progress quickly and safely. We understand that learning should be fun. As a result, all of our teachers are trained in Fantastic Teaching Skills.
We cater for ages 3 ½ to 12 in our swim school. For all other ages, please enquire about 1-1 swimming lessons.
Our lessons take place Monday to Thursday from 2.30pm to 5.30pm and Saturday mornings from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Our new structure has been designed to excite kids about swimming lessons. We teach not only strokes and techniques but we also educate the kids on water safety, whether this be at the pool or at the beach.
Our swimming lessons normally run for a 10 week term and cost €100.00 for members and €120.00 for non-members
(rate is per child for the 10 week course)
