Overview

The City of Burnside runs a swim school for all ages from 12 months as well as school holiday and birthday party programs. Our Swim School program follows the school term operating only in Terms 1 and 4. The classes run after school hours Monday to Thursday and Saturday mornings. For information on our levels please see our Swim School Flyer.

We also provide swimming lessons for adults. There are different levels depending on your skill level. We even run stroke correction classes for those after a bit of help with their lap swimming. Call us today on 8366 4290 to have a chat about your swimming.

Swim School Information

The Burnside Swim School lessons teach swimming and survival strokes with a focus on water safety. The lessons involve water safety elements in each of the eight levels, as well as dedicated safety weeks where the entire lesson is focused on water safety. This will assist in our goal to ensure all children are safer in and around the water.

To ensure your child is placed in their appropriate level, all students 4 years and over with previous swimming experience require an assessment; swimming lessons can be booked after your assessment. During assessments parents will need to accompany under 5’s in the water in line with the Centre’s Watch Around Water program.

Enrolments

At Burnside Swim School we have a staggered enrolment process. Those enrolled in the previous term get first priority to enrol in the new term. Students from the previous term have a spot in their current class held during the dates stated below. Please note if you haven't enrolled (paid for the lessons) before the dates stated below your spot may be given to another student. The students previously enrolled then have the chance to move classes into the spaces remaining. The classes are then opened up to any new students that wish to enrol.
