Learn to Swim

 

Yeronga park Swimming Complex runs offers our full complement of learn to swim classes 7 days a week across all three of our heated pools, all year around.

Our indoor 20m pool is the perfect temperature for hydrotherapy classes and baby learn to swim.

Our unique 6 level program will ensure that your child gains strong fundamentals and continues to develop and strengthen their swimming as they progress.

Swimming certificates are awarded to children as they graduate through the 6 swim levels.

 

Little Stars

3-6 Months

It is so important to introduce children to the water at an early age. This FREE programme teaches parents basic water safety skills for their bubs in a welcoming and social environment.

Babies

6-12 Months

Through play and repetition we start to develop water safety skills in these classes.

Squirts

15 Months - 2.2 Years

Teachers, parents and infants are starting to work together during class to develop a relationship with the teacher in preparation for the next level.  Most importantly we are working hard to ensure safety in the water as well as introducing more swimming based skills.

 

Level 1

2.2 – 3.5 Years

Children who are in this level have either graduated from Squirts or are starting swimming lessons for the first time.  We are building on the foundations from previous swimming skills to make safe and happy swimmers.  Level 1 is a whole lot of FUN!

Level 2

3.5 - 4.5 Years

Now it’s time to start putting it all together.  Students in level 2 are required to have the confidence to put their eyes in the water.  In this level we are developing and strengthening of freestyle and backstroke.

Level 3

4 - 6 Years

Swimming 12.5metres, we are giving students independence to develop and strengthen their freestyle and backstroke.  We do this by keeping the class moving and giving students individual feedback to improve their swimming.

Tadpoles

5 - 8 Years

This is the last level in our Learn to Swim programme before students move into our Junior Squad Programme.  Students swim 25metres freestyle and backstroke and we introduce tumble turns and breastroke.

 

Please see our Policies and Procedures page for details about class attendance and safety procedures.

Junior Squads

After learn to swim, children are introduced to squad training through our Mini Squad. Swimmers will then progress into the Championship, State or National Squad depending on their age and commitment to swimming.

Competitive swim squads give swimmers the opportunity to improve their swimming fitness, skills and compete at carnivals. We encourage swimmers in the 50 metre pool to come no less than 3 sessions per week.
