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, however we can discuss alternative times to meet your school's needs. You can choose from intensive, weekly or singular session formats.
