Family Athletic Club Ydria has swimming classes for children over 3 years old operating on the standards of the innovative swimming program of Australia and Austswim.

Our programs meet the best educational and pedagogical conditions so not only will your child be learning a life skill, they will also gain confidence, self-esteem, and build character. By participating in one of the greatest physical activities in the world with us, children will gain respect for the water and develop a healthy life-long love of the water. They will also respect the value of sport and fair play throughout their lives.

Our well-trained coaches, who above all are educators with a great love for children, combined with our strictly small groups; our well-organized lesson plans which use a well-defined program of skills plus creative equipment and a unique curriculum; and the extremely positive and supportive environment in which learning takes place; have created many happy and confident young swimmers.

For older children who wish to participate in races, we cooperate with the sports club Ydria.

*AUSTSWIM: Austswim is Australia’ s national organisation for teaching swimming and water safety.


For older children (over 3 years of age) lessons are performed once or twice a week. Each group consists of five children, always in the presence of a coach in the pool.
