Swimming Lessons

Swimming and water safety skills are just part of what your child will gain with YMCA Swimming Lessons.

Swimming strokes such as freestyle and backstroke are an important part of swimming. However it’s vital your children learn personal survival skills, not for just the pool, but rivers, lakes and the ocean. With YMCA Swimming Lessons, your child will learn these lifesaving skills.

They’ll also have access to the pool outside of lesson times, receive merchandise discounts, and there’s no re-enrolment process. Our nationally accredited teachers give you regular feedback on progress, and a certificate after your child completes each level.

We run our swimming lessons calendar for a 48 weeks with no term breaks (only the summer break). See the swimming Lessons Calendar for school dates.
