Do you offer adult classes?
We offer private lessons for our adult clients as we believe this is the fastest and therefore most economical way for adults to learn to swim.

How long will it take to learn how to swim?
Every swimmer comes to us with a different background and set of abilities and skills. We endeavour to ensure every swimmer reaches their swimming potential as quickly as possible. We have the best teaches, smallest class sizes and largest pool area per class to ensure this. Once swimmers have completed some lessons with us, we can better estimate how quickly they will progress.

When and how often will my child get assessed?
For private lessons there are 18 categories of specific skills which swimmers can work towards. We do not use levels so that private lessons can be tailored to each individual child’s needs. For our group classes we have 10 learn to swim levels which each swimmer works towards achieving.

When swimmers achieve new skills, their teacher updates it online. This is continuously done throughout the year. These updates can be viewed online through the parent portal.

Many of our clients successfully access NDIS funding to contribute to or completely fund their swimming lessons. Please consult your NDIS Plan Manager for funding enquiries.
