Crash Courses

Crash Courses are our holiday swim program which is both comprehensive and intensive. The course operates for over 4 or 5 days and will help children develop water confidence as well as improving skills and technique.

These courses are very popular before holidays to give children an extra boost for swimming in the sun, but also an ideal insight into our Junior Swimming Lesson program.

Courses typically run Monday - Friday from 10:00am with each lesson being 30 minutes. This is the equivalent of 5 weeks swimming lessons in one week. On completion all swimmers will receive a certificate.

Designed for swimmers at Duckling level (age 3+ years) to stage 4, the sessions are ideal for current swimmers on our program who are looking to improve technique, learn to dive and perform competitive starts and turns, for new swimmers who want to progress quickly or for those that want to be assessed to join our weekly swimming lessons. Each group has a maximum of six swimmers.

The next course dates are:
