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.

Getting started with YMCA Swimming Lessons is easy.

  1. Call us for an easy, over the phone consultation where we’ll find the appropriate class for your child.
  2. Select a time and day based on your child’s level.
  3. Your first lesson! Arrive early so you can meet your new teacher 


Term 2 will commence on Monday April 13, 2015 and conclude on Saturday June 27, 2015.
If you wish to continue swimming lessons for your child in Term 2, you do not have to do anything, your child will automatically be re-enrolled into the same class for Term 2.
If your child is not continuing with lessons in Term 2 you will need to notify us asap.
If you need to change your childs class/time/day please contact me as soon as possible so we can ensure that your preferred class is available.
All Direct Debits will be automatically suspended over the school holidays and will recommence for Term 2 swimmers when term starts.
