The Peterborough Swim School strives to teach young swimmers stroke skills and to increase endurance.
The school is divided into two sections: bronze and silver. Lessons take place at the Peterborough YMCA.

Sessions are ten weeks in length depending on the session. The lessons focus on in-water learning with a qualified instructor.

Upon completion of the course, swimmers may be invited to proceed to the competitive program of the Trent Swim Club.

Prerequisite: We accept children ages 5 years and older. Swimmers MUST be able to swim 25 metres (one pool length) without stopping and be comfortable putting their face in the water. The Peterborough Swim School provides great off-season stroke improvement and endurance conditioning for young triathletes.

We look forward to seeing you in the pool!
