Learn To Swim Information

IMPORTANT: Due to government regulations regarding gatherings of more than 100 people due to COVID-19 concerns, as of 12pm March 18 2020 all Learn to Swim lessons are suspended until further notice.

At this stage, we are anticipating a return date of at least 16 April 2020, however due to uncertainty of COVID-19 the return date will be announced via our website and Facebook. 

Current Learn to Swim families will not be charged during this suspension period. Unfortunately we cannot take on any new enrolments during this time.

Our Learn to Swim program provides continual learning for our students all year round. Lessons are conducted 47 weeks of the year to allow for consistent learning and to provide students with the opportunity to progress through levels at a faster rate. We are an Austswim Recognised Swim Centre, with all our instructors holding Austswim accreditation, giving you peace of mind that your child will receive high quality aquatic education.

Classes are held in the kids pool zone. This pool contains an integrated wheelchair accessible ramp to support access for all patrons.

Catering to students of all ages and abilities, Learn to Swim classes are conducted for infants and pre-school children right through to teenage and adult programs.


Due to the current COVID-19 preventative measures, all enrolments are currently closed until our program recommences.
