Swimming and more in York for kids at York Sport

[tabs type=”vertical”]

[tab title=”Little Vikings Says…”] York Sport is a relatively new £9m facility for the city, based up near York University. It’s not just for students though, and you don’t need to be a member to use it either. It has a 25m pool, 18m learner pool, football pitches and gym. For families, one of York Sport’s biggest selling points is the huge range of (Little Vikings Award-winning) swimming lessons. The cubicles are a reasonable size for small families to change together, and there are some dedicated family changing rooms which is a bonus.

Good to know – The learner pool is ideal for younger swimmers, although under 3s may struggle to stand up as there’s no dedicated shallow end. Outdoors there’s an Olympic-sized velodrome and 1km cycle circuit suitable for cyclists of all abilities. Look out for sporty holiday courses.
