It's never too late to learn how to swim. Our aim is to help you develop swimming technique in the water, and learn vital survival skills not just for the pool but for rivers, lakes and the ocean.

  • Beginner classes develop water confidence through buoyancy and mobility. We'll gradually introduce steps to swimming.
  • Intermediate and advanced classes focus on stroke refinement and correction.

Our teachers are AUSTSWIM accredited, and provide a safe, social and encouraging learning environment.

You'll learn to:

  • develop and refine swimming strokes;
  • cooperate with and respect others in an aquatic environment;
  • make safe and sensible decisions and solve problems in and around water.

Swimming lesson students receive a membership card and have unlimited access to all Boroondara aquatic facilities outside of class hours. This includes Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre, Boroondara Sports Complex, Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre and Kew Recreation Centre.
