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

Swimming lessons are an essential part of any child’s development and they are a great way to keep your children healthy and active throughout the year. Swimming is one of the most valuable physical skills any child can learn – safely setting them up for a lifetime of fun in and around water.

The Y Swimming Lessons are more than just a swimming lesson. Students will:

  • Participate in group lessons conducted with nationally accredited teachers that follow a curriculum which allows timely progression through development of water safety skills.
  • Establish a lifelong appreciation for safe activity in the water, from pools to beaches and rivers.

There’s no re-enrolment process. Our nationally accredited teachers give you regular feedback on progress and a certificate after your child completes each level.

Unfortunately, many children have missed out on vital swimming and water safety lessons in 2020. Now is the time to reintroduce (or introduce) swimming into your child’s life by signing up for swimming lessons with the Y.

If you require any further information, please fill out an enquiry form or speak with one of our friendly staff members on 9401 2222.

Getting Started With Swimming Lessons

Anybody who is enrolling in swimming lessons at the Y Leisure City will need to complete a swimming assessment form.

Swimming assessments allow our team to determine the appropriate class for your child to join and help set them up for success in the pool.

The assessment usually take 5-10 minutes and can be scheduled anytime while swimming lessons are running at the Y Leisure City.

To request an assessment click here to complete the swimming lessons assessment request form and a member of our team will contact you to confirm a date and time. Alternatively, you can call our centre to schedule an assessment over the phone.

Preparing for your Swimming Lesson Assessment

Please arrive no later than 5 minutes before your assessment is scheduled to begin and make sure your child is wearing appropriate swimwear.

Parents are more than welcome to observe during the assessment either poolside or from the parents viewing area.
