The Canning Swim School combines fun with aquatic education. Lessons develop skills in stroke technique, personal development, and water familiarisation.

The Canning Swim School program is available at both Cannington and Riverton Leisureplexes.

The Swim School operates a term-based program. It runs seven days a week and has five teaching pools across the two centres. Pools are also maintained at ideal temperatures for baby lessons.

New Canning Swim School Program

Enrolments are now open for the new Canning Swim School Program, starting 17 July 2023.

As part of the new program, we are switching to an ongoing direct debit structure. This makes it easier and more affordable for you to enjoy our swim school program.

Our swim programs start from $16 a week. Please download the new program pricing (PDF 185KB). Payments will not start until the program commences on 17 July.

Please note that we are taking in only online and in-person enrolments only. Customers will not be able to enrol over the phone. Please refer to the guide (PDF 630KB) for how to enrol online.

Enrol between 8 May to 16 July and you could win some swim school merchandise.

Under the new program, customers will no longer have to make large upfront payments for the entire term. Instead, smaller regular payments will be made through direct debit on a weekly or fortnightly basis. This provides more flexibility and ease of payment. This change will allow our customers to spread the cost of the program over the term, making it more manageable and accessible for everyone.

The new system will also remove recurring enrolment hassle by providing customers with a placement in current swim lesson level with our swim school program. Additionally, customers will have more options for session bookings as our classes will run through school holidays.

We offer free assessments at both Cannington and Riverton Leisureplex. This is to help determine what level is best for your child. You can book an assessment online.

At the assessment, one of our staff will ask your child to demonstrate several swimming skills. This assessment helps determine your child's level at Canning Swim School.

This free assessment will take approximately 10-15 minutes. Please bring along your swim wear, towel, and goggles. Once the assessment is complete, you can then enrol online or at the centre.

We recognise swimmers from the Education Department, VacSwim and other swim schools.

The Online Customer Portal allows you to:

  • update contact details and medical information
  • view any vouchers and expiry dates
