Swimming lessons for school-aged children are skills-focused and outcome based.
30 minute duration; 6 years and up, 6 per class
Experienced AUSTSWIM staff ensure innovative lessons promote water safety and enjoyment. The year-round program allows the child to continue building their abilities with constant reinforcement and repetition without the regression found in seasonal programs. Progression through the levels is equivalent to and recognised by the education department, making it user friendly for all. Unsure of the correct level to enrol in?

Lifesaving and Rescue Awards
These awards focus on skill development accompanied by judgment and initiative. A continuation from Riverton's school age curriculum, Swim and Survive provides a broad, balanced program of swimming, water safety and survival skills. The program builds confidence and endurance. These stages will be run in conjunction with the Junior Lifeguard Club.

We recognise the need to treat teenagers not as the children they were, but as the young adults they are becoming.
Our experienced teachers understand that no teenager would be comfortable learning how to swim in a beginners’ class with much younger children.
Our teenage program is designed for students aged 12 – 18 years and focuses on water confidence, safety practices and stroke development:
• Teen Beginner: learning to be safe and confident in the water
• Teen Intermediate: learning the fundamentals of key strokes
• Teen Advanced: learning stroke development and efficiency
