Learn to swim programs
Swimming lessons for all ages and abilities
Swim and Survive Learn to Swim Lessons are available for babies from 6 months of age through to adults of all levels and abilities.
Lessons are 30 minutes in duration, during which time you will learn:
- safe water entry
- how to float and breathe confidently in the water
- proficiency in freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breast stroke
- survival and rescue skills, and
- water safety
Our Learn to Swim program operates 7 days per week during school terms. All lessons are conducted in our 25-metre indoor heated pools.
All students enrolled in our Learn to Swim Program are entitled to swim recreationally free of charge at our indoor pools year round and our outdoor pools during Summer.
All new school aged students receive a free swimming assessment so they can be placed in the class that is most suited to their ability.
Intensive school holiday swimming programs/VicSwim
In addition to term swimming lessons, we also offer 5-day intensive Learn to Swim Programs in the school holidays. These are a fantastic way to fast track your child's swimming abilities.

Watch around water
The Mitchell Shire Leisure centres are accredited Watch Around Water facilities, which means that the Watch Around Water Policy must be adhered to at all times within our centres.
Children under 5 years old must be supervised and remain within arm's reach of a supervising adult at all times. If the child is in the water, the supervising adult must be in the water too.
Children under 10 years old must be accompanied into the facility and actively supervised by an adult at all times. The supervising adult must have a clear view of the child at all times.
Unsupervised children of any age will be removed from the water if the lifeguard is concerned for their safety.
