Swim schools and baby swimming

Sports and exercise services organise swim shools for adults who are unable to swim and in the summer, basic swimming courses are available for children. Information regarding swimming schools can be found in the Seinäjoen Sanomat paper. Enrolment is in May.

In winter months, basic courses and courses in swimming technique are organised by Seinäjoen Uimarit (in Finnish).

Baby swimming

Baby swimming courses are held every Saturday morning between 9:45am-12:15pm (five groups, each for 30 minutes). Ideally, baby swimming courses should begin when the baby is 3-6 months old and weighing at least 5 kilos, although you can apply to join the group before this. The baby swimming course is available for babies up to the age of one year.

New groups begin in September and January, but you can apply for places that may become available during the season.
