Learn to Swim

We run a Learn to Swim programme for swimmers from six months of age right through to adults.

If you want to learn to swim, receive stroke correction or learn about water safety, you’ve come to the right place!

Note: Term 1 registration is closed.  We will continue to accept registrations for Term 2, however, we will not be able to notify you of acceptance until the beginning of April. 

Term 2 lessons commence in April and the Term 2 Timetable is now available to download (PDF 2 Mb).

Swimming lesson times

Swimming lessons are run between the hours of noon – 6pm, Monday to Friday and between 8am - noon on Saturday and Sunday, depending on the age and ability of the swimmer.
