Swimming lessons

  • On the first day of class, bring your child's previous progress card and receive a free two for one swim admission.
  • If registering in a multi-level swim class, please inform the instructor of your child's swim level on the first day of class.
  • Private lessons are available and can be booked online, by phone or in person. There is no guarantee that your child will have the same instructor if booking more than one private lesson. If your child has special learning needs, please let your instructor know before the first lesson.
