Learn To Swim Program

Swimming Lessons in Bendigo, VIC


A fun, new way to learn how to swim and be safe.

We have partnered with Swimming Australia to deliver students new and effective swimming and water safety program focusing on contemporary experiential and activity-based learning, encouraging and supporting students to explore pathways into competitive and recreational lap swimming.  

Implementation of this high-quality, activity-based educational program is designed to better integrate student learning outcomes into real-world settings, offering students opportunity to: 

  • Gain maximum participation and practice time in activities that encourage, mentor and support the learning process where they are active for most of the lesson
  • Be empowered to think, discuss and decide through experiential based learning where mentoring, guidance and challenge encourages them to use and enhance their knowledge, skill and understanding
  • Learn and understand essential components of personal survival and water safety elements while concurrently in addition to the development of establishing strong and effective swimming technique
  • Be supported by professional, qualified teachers as they progress the curriculum toward the Junior Dolphins Program.

Aquatic Pathways from Infants through to Junior Dolphins

The Junior Dolphins is designed to encourage continued participation in aquatic activity through competitive and recreational/lap swimming.   The curriculum for the program builds on the core and foundation elements in the GOSWIM program, as each skill is broken down into segmented and achievable components that streamline and refine technique and enhance the development of efficiency and endurance.
