Learn. Compete. Keep fit. Cool off.

There are a number of reasons why you’d get in a swimming pool. Learn to swim safely, do some laps in your own time or join a squad to take it up a notch. Well, you can do all of that in our state of the art aquatic centre.

Our nationally accredited swimming instructors teach both kids and adults how to swim safely in a number of environments. We’ll work on a number of strokes as well as key lifesaving skills.

Our kids and adults classes are run separately.
