School Holiday Fun with UQ Sport Kids Club

Is your child a racquet whizz, born to sprint, or loves to dive? Instead of plugging into an iPad these school holidays, why not reconnect your kids to the real world with UQ Sport Kids! Their tennis, swimming and athletics programs are the perfect way to include exercise in your child’s day in a fun, safe and supportive environment. Play, learn and laugh with the UQ Sport Kids Club – a jam-packed week of active fun and learning for kids aged 5-14, taking place in the four major term breaks throughout the year.

The UQ Sport Kids Club:

  • Encourages active minds and healthy bodies, combining sports and game-based play with a range of interactive lifestyle and educational sessions.
  • Is not just for the sporty types, there’s a mixture of activities including inflatable pool fun, and a dance party to finish the holidays with a bang!
  • Caters for working parents, offering before and after care, and an escorted walk from the Dutton Park side of the Eleanor Schonell Bridge for convenience.

At their Aquatic Centre:


They nurture your child from the very beginning, teaching vital water safety skills for children aged 6 months to 17 years, including:

The UQ Sport Bubble Club:

Encouraging mums-to-be to float, drift and bob with other expectant mothers with a free 14-month Maternity Pass to their Aquatic Centre. Keep splashing after the bubble has popped with free Learn-to-Swim classes for your 4-6 month old bub.

Year-round classes:

In their heated pools catering to all skill levels. Their main focus is encouraging kids to enjoy the water, boosting their confidence and abilities through play.

UQ Sport Can Swim:
