we're passionate about swimming
At Fit2Swim we aim to make learning to swim a safe, enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone! Our family-run swim school caters for babies through to adults. Lessons are held in our custom-built facility with a 20m indoor heated pool, showers, change rooms and separate viewing area. As our centre is dedicated to learning, there is no distraction from public swimmers. Also, our state-of-the-art water purification system means you enjoy the healthiest water possible and a wonderfully odour free environment.
STRUCTURED LEARN-TO-SWIM PROGRAM IN FUN, FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT
At the baby and toddler stage, we introduce your child to the joy of swimming in a fun, friendly and social environment. We want your child to develop the same lifelong love for water as we have! Once they are familiar with the basic components of moving independently through water, your child progresses to stroke fundamentals, starting with freestyle and gradually introducing backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Our structured program provides a clear and achievable pathway towards improvement and development.
REGULAR FEEDBACK ON PROGRESS
We partner with parents to support optimal learning for your kids. Our instructors are happy to provide feedback on your child after your lesson. Or you can monitor your child's progress at any time via the online customer portal, where we highlight key milestones reached.
QUALIFIED AND CARING INSTRUCTORS
All our teachers are accredited with licenced Swim Instructors, passionate about swimming and highly committed to your child's swimming education. We take a patient, caring approach and our small classes ensure your child receives more personal attention.
OTHER SPECIALISED PROGRAMS
For the more competent swimmers we offer squad level training - a great way to increase fitness. We also provide a class for those interested in competitive swimming. Other specialist classes include stroke correction and learn-to-swim for adults.
WATER SAFETY SKILLS - A KEY COMPONENT
As a Royal Life Saving accredited swim school we recognise the importance of learning water safety and survival skills. We have ensured water safety education is a key component of every Fit2Swim lesson.
REMOVE THE MYSTERY AROUND SWIMMING LESSONS
From the names of our levels to our face-to-face teacher feedback and skills tracking on our customer portal, you gain a clear understanding of what your child is learning and how they are progressing. We also partner with parents to understand your child's individual needs and encourage practice between lessons.
KEEP STUDENTS MOVING
Like you, we want to maximise the time your child spends learning during their swimming lesson. Our learn-to-swim class sizes are kept small (2-3 students) and we ensure every child is active throughout the entire lesson.
RESPECT FOR THE GROUP
Respect for the teacher and respect for fellow students is paramount. All swimmers are expected to attend to the teacher throughout the lesson. Students watch each other and learn together.
SWIMMING AS A TEAM
Our students learn to encourage their fellow swimmers as they work toward group goals. Classes involve fun team activities that celebrate group 'wins' and create a positive and focused learning environment.
As a Fit2Swim customer you get exclusive access to a range of videos that reinforce the skills learnt in the lesson and help you to practice. See how our online progress tracking and instructional videos greatly enhance a student's learning and sense of achievement:
water safety programs
We believe children should learn the essential components of personal survival and water safety, in addition to effective swimming technique. Fit2Swim has teamed up with Royal Life Saving to incorporate their highly respected Swim and Survive program in all our swimming lessons.
The Swim and Survive program has made a significant contribution to reducing drowning and increasing participation in safe aquatic activity. Your child will learn such things as how to enter and exit water safely, correct use of flotation devices, and skulling on their back to safety.
Fit2Swim also provides tailored programs dedicated to water safety skills. Speak to us about a water safety program for your school, organisation or community group.
PLEASE BE ON TIME
Arrive for lessons with plenty of time for your child to get ready in a relaxed manner, especially if the swimming lesson is a new experience. Arriving late can be very disruptive to the flow of the class and your child may miss out on learning important skills.
We recommend one piece costumes for girls and swim briefs for boys. Rinse all swimwear in tap water after your lessons to increase their lifespan. Wetsuits or rashies are not recommended as they hinder learning how to swim.
We recommend children over 3 years old wear a swimming cap. This helps keep the pool water clean but also keeps your child warmer and prevents their hair getting in their face during lessons. You can buy a cap from the Fit2Swim service desk if you don’t already have one.
NO SHOES ON POOL DECK
Please remove your and your children's shoes and place them on the racks provided before entering the pool hall. This helps us maintain a dirt-free environment for everyone to enjoy.
POOL ENTRY AND EXIT
For their own safety, it is essential that your child does not enter the pool before their scheduled lesson time and exits the pool promptly at the end of their lesson.
Goggles are not required for 0-3 year old classes as children need to learn to be comfortable with water. However, goggles are recommended for subsequent levels as children place their face under water for longer periods of time. You can buy a pair of goggles from the Fit2Swim service desk if you don’t already have one.
Strict rules apply to baby or toddler’s attire whether toilet trained or not. All children under the age of 3 must wear a disposable swimming nappy covered by a snuggly-fitting SplashAbout Happy Nappy. You can buy both types of nappies from the Fit2Swim service desk.
Please toilet your child prior to the lesson to avoid accidents and disruptions during the class.
