School Holiday Swimming

Fast track swimming skills during the school holidays

The school holidays are the perfect time to progress your child’s swimming skills – ready for hours of fun playing in the pool, at the beach and enjoying water-based family holidays.

Our holiday program now offers specially designed one off stroke and skills clinics, as well as our traditional Swimvac intensive lessons.

Swimvac Intensive Lessons

Get a month’s worth of lessons in just one week. School holiday Swimvac is designed to boost your child’s confidence and competence through the daily repetition and extension of skills – and we all know that mastering a new or developing skill requires repetition and corrections on a regular basis. This week of lessons will produce significant improvements for students, especially those who are new to a class or need extra attention and support, to reach the next level.

Our next Swimvac Program will commence on Monday 6th January 2020.

Tadpole to Marlin | 30 min lessons | 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm*
Kingfish and Superfish | 45 min lessons | 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm*
Shark | 60 min lessons | 1pm-3pm (Cherrybrook and Killarney Heights only)*

*Sessions times vary by pool location. Please confirm availability with your local customer service team.
Swimvac classes are held in addition to regular class bookings.
