We are developing use of On Course as our swimming lesson management system. This market leading technology ensures we can operate our lessons in the most effective and efficient way possible. Your swimming teacher will use a handheld device during the lesson to continually assess your child and all information on their progress will be available for you online.

Holiday Intensive Lessons

Intensive lessons are offered at some centres through school holiday periods to help your child move through or complete a stage. They offer your child a daily class throughout the week to help accelerate their learning.
