Why Women Only?
In early 2016 it was recognised that many female community members were unable to participate in an aquatic environment where males were present, whether for social, cultural or religious reasons.
In 2017 the City of Canning introduced the opportunity to provide women of all ages and abilities to experience swimming and aquatic recreation in a private, social and supportive environment together, demonstrating the City's leadership in embedding inclusion, a sense of belonging, and ensuring equitable access to aquatic programs for all community members.
Women Only Swimming Lessons
Cannington Leisureplex has long been in partnership with Royal Lifesaving Society WA (RLSSWA) , facilitating Swimming and Water Safety Education for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) communities since 2012 and participation in these lessons continues to increase each term.
Last year over 500 people participated in CaLD specific swimming lessons held in the City.
One former participant of these lessons, Titisari, went on to become qualified as a swimming instructor and now teaches at Cannington Leisureplex.
