The Aquamoves Swim School operates under the Nationally Accredited Swim and Survive Program. We provide engaging and interactive swim classes for children aged from 6 months, right through to older adults.

Our philosophy is to provide a safe and friendly learning environment for our students and assist them to develop an awareness of potential dangers in and around water, whilst teaching a range of swimming safety and survival skills.

All of our swim teachers are fully qualified and accredited instructors. They are trained to teach a range of classes including; infants, preschool, primary school, people with a disability and adults.

Swimming lessons are held in small groups with class times available 6 days a week from Monday to Saturday. Most lessons are 30 minutes long (some advanced and adult levels run for 1 hour) and are held once a week. Instructors will determine when a child is ready for the next level and a member of the Aquatics team will contact the parent to let them know.

In addition to our standard 30-minute small group lessons, we also offer teenage fitness lessons. These sessions run for one hour, once a week. The aim of these lessons is to improve the endurance and fitness of teenagers.

Lessons are subject to swim instructor availability.

Swim and Survive Program

The Swim and Survive Program is a comprehensive swimming and water safety initiative of Royal Life Saving that seeks to increase the swimming and water safety skills of all Australian children in order to prevent drowning and increase participation in safe aquatic activity.

Aquamoves is proud to be a partner of the Swim and Survive Program, the largest water safety education program in Australia.

Swim and Survive is a fun and dynamic swimming and water safety program that focuses on the development of swimming, personal survival, basic rescue and lifesaving skills. Swim and Survive aims to provide individuals with the required skills to lead safe and active lives in, on and around water.

No matter the level of experience, Swim and Survive is inclusive for everyone at any ability to learn these essential skills.

The comprehensive and balanced curriculum will guide learning through progressive steps, providing an opportunity to grasp the fundamental skills through to advancing to more challenging skills increasing in endurance and complexity.
