Aquatics

Learn. Compete. Keep fit. Cool off.

There are a number of reasons why you’d get in a swimming pool. Learn to swim safely, do some laps in your own time or join a squad to take it up a notch. Well, you can do all of that at our state of the art aquatic centre.

Swimming lessons

Our nationally accredited swimming instructors teach both kids and adults how to swim safely in a number of environments. We’ll work on a number of strokes as well as key lifesaving skills.

Our kids and adults classes are run separately.

What to bring

  • Kids under three need to wear a swimming nappy
  • Kids three and over need to wear a swimming cap
