NAC Learn to Swim Program

Learning to Swim is an essential for Aussie kids! We are the land of beautiful beaches, backyard pools and swimming carnivals in summer.

The NAC Learn to Swim Program is a fun, and supportive way for kids to gain this important life skill and are structured for babies, pre-schoolers, school-aged children, and adults.

Our program is focussed on progressing through the different levels, and children can start at almost any age. Come and watch a lesson, or take advantage of a complimentary assessment of your child’s abilities so we can place them in the right level.

We also host Intensive Programs throughout school holidays. This program helps to accelerate children’s learning and build confidence over five consecutive days. It’s a great way to reinforce and boost skills, particularly if children have had a break from swimming or are just getting started on their aquatic journey.

The lessons are held in the mornings, Monday to Friday during school holidays, with all levels and abilities catered for from 6 months of age. Bookings are essential, contact us for FREE assessment and class availability. 

Recent compliment on our LTS Intensive Program- “We do the intensive swim program each school holidays. It has been amazing for our daughter’s swimming as we have seen massive improvements in her skills over the course of the week.” Elise, current Learn to Swim Program parent.
