The Dickson Aquatic Centre Swim School aims to provide families with programs that cater from water familiarity and basic swim and survival skills to advanced stroke correction in preparation for squad level swimming. Term programs provide once a week lessons which are convenient and a great way to learn and develop their swimming abilities. The January intensive programs aim to develop and reinforce swimming skills through daily lessons and give kids a great way to spend the summer in the water. One of the swim schools main objectives is to ensure all students become water safe through the Royal Life Saving Swim and Survive initiative.
2013 - 2014 Swim School Programs
Enrolments are now CLOSED
Enrolments must be done in person.
1. Come into the pool during Swim School hours
2. Swim School staff will assess your child to determine the appropriate level
3. Parents and staff will then look at timeslots available
4. Payment must be made at the time of booking
At the beginning of each season all children need to be assessed. Throughout the season we will be monitoring children to determine if they need to change levels.
The assessment is usually 5 to 10 minutes in the water. Depending of the age and experience of the child they will be asked to perform a number of skills. The Swim School staff member will observe them and determine the best level for them.
We do not take enrolments over the phone.
Our adult lessons offer those who lack confidence and experience in the water a chance to improve and learn new skills in safe and supportive environment. We also offer lessons for those who are comfortable in the water but would like to improve their skills and become a more efficient swimmer. To enrol come into the pool during Swim School Open Hours and talk to one of our friendly swim school staff!
