Set them free

As our little ones grow older, keeping them fit and healthy can be a real challenge, so we’ve listened to our members and have made it easier for children to stay active and get more from their David Lloyd Club.

Take the plunge

Giving kids the freedom to swim independently in a safe environment can really boost their confidence and help improve their skills. We’ve made our pools more accessible so children aged 10-12 years old can now swim independently during family swim times. All they need to do is complete a shark test – performing some supervised swim drills in the water - and they’re all set.

Gym time

There’s a whole new world of exercises and equipment to explore, which we know can appear a little daunting, so we’ve made our gym more accessible from a younger age. Children aged 10-12 years can now use the gym when supervised by a parent or the gym team. All they need to do is complete a ‘Start Up’ gym induction with our gym team and hit the gym floor. Check out your local club for more details.

DL Kids

If you want your kids to stay active and have lots of fun, just sign them up for our DL Kids programme. We’ve deliberately timed the sessions to match up with our group exercise classes, so you can enjoy the club while they play a sport, some games or have fun in an arts and crafts session. It’s a really great way to keep them running around, learning new skills and sports, and having fun as they make new friends.

All Stars

Our swimming, tennis and gymnastics All Stars programmes let your kids learn new skills in a fun environment. In fact, our All Stars programmes are so good, they’re endorsed by the very best – the Swim England and the Lawn Tennis Association.

Our expert coaches start with the basics and then gradually teach them ways to improve and progress in their sport, while having lots of fun along the way. The only problem? They could soon be better than you!
