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

We offer 30, 45 and 60 minute classes and you can choose from intensive and weekly program formats. We can discuss session times with you based on your school's needs and pool availability.

Our teacher / student ratios range from 1:4 to 1:8, depending on student ability, age and pool location.


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 50 metre pool is ideal for school carnivals. Carnivals can include a range of events, either just for fun or for competitions. The venue includes equipment (such as P.A. system, tables and chairs), large shaded areas and lifeguards.

We also offer swimming time trials and aquatic adventure days – great for celebrations or end of year activities.


We have a number of facilities which you can tailor to your program:

  • a nine lane, 50 metre outdoor pool heated to 27 degrees;
  • indoor warm water pool heated to 33 degrees.
