Our Swim School combines fun with aquatic education to provide children lessons in stroke technique, personal development and water familiarisation.

The City of Canning's comprehensive Learn to Swim program is available at two locations with the added advantage of greater lesson choice. 

The Swim School operates a term based program seven days a week and have five teaching pools on offer across the two centres. This includes a hydrotherapy pool at Riverton Leisureplex and the leisure pool at Cannington Leisureplex, maintained at ideal temperatures for baby lessons.
