Learn to Swim

The Academy’s Learn To Swim programme provides an introduction to the aquatic environment with the primary aim of making swimmers safe and familiar within the water environment before teaching the fundamentals of the swimming strokes.

Swimmers are taught water safety and all four swimming strokes beginning with basic stroke technique and progressing as they move through the levels. The College’s two indoor pools are chlorine free and operate with the Hydroxypure system creating an amazingly clean and fresh swimming environment in our year round heated pools.

There are six levels within the Learn to Swim programme ranging from our Mums and Bubs classes to our advanced Learn To Swim classes. Our Learn to Swim classes focus on enjoyable aquatic environment familiarisation. Children are taught water safety first, then the basics of freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke are taught.

Learn To Swim classes are available weekdays between 2.00pm and 5.30pm and Saturdays between 8.00am and 11.00am.
