Safety week

Each school term we dedicate 1 full week to safety in and around aquatic environments, following the guidelines from Royal Life Saving’s swim and survive programs.  Children are encouraged to participate by answering questions, and learning different survival skills. During this week children take part in circuits that involve wearing a personal flotation device, use various flotation aids like balls and eskys, perform basic rescues using clothing and towels, tread water and learn to swim through currents. Contact us to find out which week these sessions will be run.


Adults SwimFit classes

The adult swim fitness training sessions have been designed for everyday people wanting to improve their swimming technique and general fitness. The training sessions are performed at your own pace and have been designed to provide stroke development and stroke correction. These sessions are a great way to improve cardio respiratory fitness and endurance. It is also a great all over body workout; increasing core strength and muscle tone, in a non-impact environment.

Time: Weekly sessions are run Mondays at 6pm and Wednesdays at 6am (week starting 3 April 2017).

Cost: $10 (casual) per session or you can purchase a ten pack for $80.
