Swimming lessons

Our YMCA Swimming Lesson Program is fully mapped to and aligned with Victorian Essential Learning Standards. We provide programs suitable for primary or secondary school students. In a practical environment students will develop physical skills, knowledge and understanding of a range of aquatic situations and participate in essential water safety and survival skills education.

Classes are usually run in the following format:

  • classes run once a week for around 30 minutes
  • classes have a teacher to student ratio of 1:10.
