Swimming lessons with the Y

Students will learn vital swimming skills, develop their swimming strokes and gain knowledge and understanding of different aquatic situations. Students will also take part in water safety education and open water scenarios, learning important survival skills.

Our program is aligned to the National Swimming and Water Safety Framework, which ensures that students work towards national benchmarks. We can deliver the program across your chosen number of sessions (we recommend at least five).

We'll also award the Victorian Water Safety Certificate to any student who achieves the required competencies.

Session options

Sessions are available between 9:00am and 3:00pm. We offer intensive five-day programs along with weekly formats and you can choose between 30, 40, 45 or 60 minute lessons.


Water safety incursions

We can come to you and provide classroom presentations and activities relating to swimming, water safety and personal survival. Our interactive and engaging activities are suitable for students of all ages and can be a great addition to your in-pool programs with us.

School carnivals and events

Our outdoor 25 metre pool is ideal for school carnivals. Carnivals can include a range of events, either just for fun or for competitions. Our venue includes bleachers, equipment, lifeguards and shaded seating areas.

Inflatable fun days

Perfect for an end of year celebration, or to cap off a water safety program! Our inflatable fun days provide a range of activities for children of all abilities.

Water safety excursions

We can provide a tailored program for your school and students by offering a mix of both pool and dry activities. All focused on personal survival and water safety in a range of open water environments.
