Come to a YMCA swimming pool to cool off, to get fit, to compete at elite level or just be alone with your thoughts.
There is always something to do at YMCA pools all year round. Cool off during a long hot summer and enjoy the benefits of swimming indoors during winter.
YMCA Swimming Lessons
Swimming and water safety skills are just part of what your child will gain with YMCA Swimming Lessons.
Swimming strokes such as freestyle and backstroke are an important part of swimming. It’s vital for your children to learn personal survival skills, not for just the pool, but for rivers, lakes and the ocean. With YMCA Swimming Lessons, your child will learn these lifesaving skills. They’ll also have access to the pool outside of lesson times, and there’s no re-enrolment process. Our nationally accredited teachers give you regular feedback on progress, and a certificate after your child completes each level.
Drowning is the leading cause of death for under-fives. We believe that all Australians need skills to keep them safe on our waterways.
