It's never to late to learn how to swim. Our aim is to help you develop an appreciation for safe activity in the water, and learn vital survival skills not just for the pool but for rivers, lakes and the ocean.

  • Beginner classes develop water confidence through buoyancy and mobility. We'll gradually introduce steps to swimming.
  • Intermediate and advanced classes focus on stroke refinement and correction.

Our teachers are AUSTSWIM accredited, and provide a safe, social and encouraging learning environment.

You'll learn to:

  • develop and refine swimming strokes
  • cooperate with and respect others in an aquatic environment
  • make safe and sensible decisions and solve problems in and around water.

Lessons are one hour in duration and are held on a Tuesday night. Trial classes are available for all levels. Contact us at reception for more information or to book a trial lesson today.
