Learn to Swim (LTS)
LTS swimmers start in the junior pool where they will learn basic swimming skills from water confidence, floating & kicking through to stroking & breathing
Intermediate Swimming Group
After learning the basics in the LTS group, swimmers move on to Intermediate Swimming Group in the main pool. The aim of the group is to build on the skills learned, work on technique, learn new strokes and improve swim fitness.
Senior Swimming Group
When the intermediate swimmers are ready to move up they can join the Senior Swimming Group in the main pool. The seniors work to perfect their technique, swim fitness and endurance.
Lifesaving and Water Safety
Lifesaving and Water Safety skills are included as part of each swimming session. This ensures the skills are repeated and practiced often so that they can be used when most needed.
Adult Swim Fitness
One to two lanes are available every Thursday, so parents have no excuse to not exercise! It’s a great opportunity to work on your own fitness. Talk to one of our coaches if you would like a programme put together for you.
