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 (Riverton Leisureplex and Cannington Leisureplex) with the added advantage of greater lesson choice.

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