Please be aware it is compulsory for all swimmers not 100% toilet trained to wear two layers of protection to ensure the pool environment is safe for all. Happy Nappys (or similar elasticated swimwear) are to be worn over swimmer nappies. Below is a link to a website that supplies the product.

With plenty of encouragement and positive reinforcement, our Austswim qualified Learn To Swim instructors focus on teaching children to be water safe and swim independently.

With a maximum of three children per lesson our aim is to accelerate children’s learning. Once beginner swimmers can float and dog paddle independently with confidence, we then introduce swimming strokes.

These lessons lay the foundations for efficient swim skills that will last a lifetime.
