The Y Leisure City is a leading provider of aquatic programs in the City of Whittlesea. Our swimming lessons are a fun way to keep children healthy and active throughout the year. The Y Swimming Lesson program focuses on water safety and personal survival techniques, not just traditional swimming strokes.

Swimming is one of the most valuable physical skills any child can learn. Our swimming lessons set them up for a lifetime of safe fun in and around water.

A Y Swimming Lesson is more than just a swimming lesson. Students will:

  • participate in group lessons conducted with nationally accredited teachers
  • follow a curriculum that develops water safety skills
  • establish a lifelong appreciation for safe activity in the water, from pools to beaches and rivers.

Our nationally accredited teachers give you regular feedback on progress and a certificate after your child completes each level.

Many children missed out on vital swimming and water safety lessons in 2020. Now is the time to get swimming into your child’s life.

Getting started with swimming lessons

For preschool aged children and school children with no previous swimming experience no assessment is required.

For school aged children who have previous swimming experience as assessment is required. This allows our team to determine the appropriate class for your child, setting them up for success in the pool.

An assessment usually lasts between 5 and 10 minutes and must be pre-booked.

To request an assessment, complete the form. A team member will contact you to confirm a date and time. Or, you can call our centre.

Preparing for your swimming lesson assessment

Please arrive at least 5 minutes before the assessment is due to start. Make sure your child is wearing appropriate swimwear.

Parents must stay for the assessment and can observe from poolside or the parents viewing area.

Don’t forget to bring a towel!
