ENROL you child and start swimming today! 

YMCA Swimming Lessons help your child develop healthy habits and safe water practices they will carry with them for life. 

Running 48 weeks of the year, YMCA Swimming Lessons help your child build healthy habits and safe water practices. As an Austswim Recognised Swim Centre, you can rest assured that your child will receive the best aquatic education available with nationally accredited swimming instructors.

Swimming strokes such as freestyle and backstroke are an important part of swimming. However it is vital children learn personal survival skills that are able to improve safety not only at the pool but also in other waterways such as rivers, lakes and the ocean. With YMCA Swimming Lessons we challenge students to participate in simulated open water conditions and then to think for themselves about how to transfer these skills to other situations. 

Your child will also enjoy: 
•  unlimited access to the Warragul Leisure Centre and Baw Baw Seasonal pools outside of lesson times 
•  regular feedback on progress, and a certificate after your child completes each level via Swim Desk 

YMCA Swimming Lessons also include: 
•  no start up fees, no lock in contracts, no cancellation penalties (14 days notice required) 
•  33 week guarentee progression policy * conditions apply 
•  convenient make-up lesson policy and free 4 week suspension over summer break period
