Swimming Lessons

YMCA Swimming Lessons are designed to teach your child to be happy, active and safer in the water.

How do YMCA Swimming Lessons Work?

  • Lessons run for 30 minutes once a week over a 40 week year.
  • All of our teachers are fully AUSTSWIM qualified
  • We run lessons 7 days per week so we can find a time to fit your busy schedule.
  • Children progress through 12 levels as their skills develop and are grouped based on age and ability.
  • Children in our direct debit program have full access to the pool outside of lesson times.
