Learn to swim

Infant aquatic and learn to swim programs are available at Gold Coast Aquatic Centre and Palm Beach Aquatic Centre.

Our centres provide aquatic programs for infants through to adults of all ages and ability and are designed to:

  • teach valuable water safety skills
  • develop techniques, and
  • prepare participants for competitive swimming.

Structured programs are delivered by AUSTSWIM qualified instructors Monday to Saturday all year round with small class sizes to ensure quality tuition. One-on-one lessons are available on request.

Infant aquatic program

This four-stage program is a fun and friendly introduction to the aquatic environment for infants from four months.

Participants will become confident and water safe while learning basic skills and safe entry and exits to the pool.

Learn to swim program

Catering for ages three to 12 years, the six-level learn to swim program develops water safety skills, breathing control and the correct techniques in all four swimming strokes.

Lessons are fun and instructors encourage participants to understand why they are learning certain skills and milestones achieved throughout their progression.
