School Holiday
Learn to Swim Intensive

The learn to swim intensive program can dramatically improve your child’s chance of developing swimming ability through daily instruction.  Best suited to primary school aged children, the program is ideal for those who wish to enhance and build upon their term program learning or for those who are not currently enrolled in our term Swim School.

Each 30 minute session has a maximum number of 5 students (or less) per class so that each child has the opportunity for one on one coaching and close supervision.   Multiple classes are available, catering for different levels of ability.
