Book your free

swimming assessment

We offer free assessments for all new students to assess your child’s swimming ability. We then recommend the correct learn to swim level for your child. Assessments run for approximately 10-15 minutes. If your child is under 4 years of age an assessment is not required as they can enrol straight into an aged based infant class.

Moving Swimmers up to the Next Level

If your child is ready to move up to the next level, you will be contacted to discuss your options and arrange changes to your booking.

Swimming Attire for Lessons

  • Parents are required to wear a T-shirt over swimwear in the Under 4 program. This will assist in developing independent gripping which is an important safety skill. Please ensure your swimwear is family friendly.
  • Younger swimmers should wear swimming nappies
  • Older swimmers should wear comfortable swim attire that allows plenty of movement in the water.
  • Goggles are not encouraged until swimmers are completely confident in the water. Swimmers should swim part of every lesson without goggles for safety purposes.


You are welcome to take photos of your child only, however it is a requirement that you gain permission from management before doing so for safety reasons. There are absolutely no photos to be taken inside the change rooms at any time.
