Swimming Lessons

Our comprehensive swimming program caters for everyone, from 6 months through to squad classes, and adults of all abilities.

We're qualified AUSTSWIM or SWIM AUSTRALIA teachers, dedicated to giving professional swimming and water safety lessons to all our students. We teach you to swim confidently and safely, including water survival techniques.

Through correct teaching, our students learn skills that can be used for fun, fitness, safety, or sport.

Access & Inclusion Program

Designed to provide support to children who require additional assistance or modified sessions that will enable them to participate in aquatic education.

These classes can be one on one or small groups. Please refer enquiries for this program to

Aqua Play Group

Water familiarisation sessions designed for new parents with children aged three to 12 months. Aqua Play Group is a great way to socialise and develop water confidence by encouraging your ‘Bub’ to explore and have new experiences in the water. Sessions run weekly at Sunshine Leisure Centre. Casual Pool admission fee applies.

Holiday Intensive Program

Our Holiday Intensive Program runs during the school holidays. Intensive programs are ideal for kids who want to stay active and boost their swimming skills.

  • Places are limited.
  • Adult and teen classes are also available. 

Call us on 9249 4615 or visit SLC reception to enrol.

School Swimming Programs and Swimming Carnivals

We offer swimming programs and carnivals for school groups of all ages and abilities.

Watch Around Water

It is your responsibility to accompany and supervise your child in pools and water play areas. As one of 150 Lifesaving Victoria endorsed facilities we promote the Watch Around Water policy.

This means you must follow these guidelines:

  • Children under 5 must be constantly supervised and remain within arm's reach of you as parent/guardian. If your child is in the water, you must be in the water too.
  • Children under 10 must be accompanied into the facility and constantly supervised by you as a parent/guardian. You must have a clear view of your child at all times.
  • Children from 0-7 years must wear a wrist band which will be issued at reception.
  • You must be at least 16 years old to supervise a child. This means your children cannot be supervised by a friend or family member who is 15 or younger.

Supervision and Life Guards

Lifeguards have a range of responsibilities and are employed on ratio of one lifeguard to every 100 people at the pool. This is based on the expectation that you as a parent/guardian will directly supervise your children.
