School Aged

With an increase in confidence, competence and endurance, children aged 5 – 12 establish a lifelong appreciation for safer activity in the water.

School age

The primary program focuses on physical, intellectual and personal development.

Learning outcomes include:

  • Development and refinement of stroke
  • Safe and sensible decision-making and problem-solving in and around water
  • Personal survival skills
  • Cooperation and respect for others in an aquatic environment.

Our Teachers In Charge (TIC's) assess and progress children through the program based on individual ability.

Primary school age swimming lesson classes are held after school on Monday to Friday and Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Which level is my child?  

To ensure that your child is enrolled into the correct level, we recommend that you visit the centre for a 'Free Swimming Assessment'.
