Youthswim

Youthswim is a 30-minute session, once a week, on a term basis for those children who are not ready for squads and need further development of strokes. Entry to this program is by assessment only, or children must have completed at least Mantarays level in our swim school. (Maximum 10 students. Term program only).

Teenswim

Teenswim is for children who are not interested in squad swimming and just want to swim once a week. This 45-minute session will help keep your swimming fitness up and allow you to meet new friends. (Maximum 10 students. Term program only).

Junior Lifeguard 

The Junior Lifeguard Club offers a unique aquatic alternative for those who love the water, want to be challenged and want more than just lessons.


The Junior Lifeguard Club provides opportunities for children to keep interested and active in aquatics, especially quick learners and those caught between levels and programs. It's a fantastic opportunity to further develop swimming skills at the same time as developing new and challenging lifesaving skills.

This program is an alternate to traditional assessment checklist based programs, where participants learn the skills required for pool lifesaving and is based on personal best achievement.

Pool Lifesaving is the sport of lifesaving conducted in a pool controlled environment. Competitions in pool lifesaving are conducted at club, state, interstate and international levels. Competing allows participants to aspire to being a member of the Junior Barras (under 16 Australian Team), Silver Barras (under 19 Australian Team) or the Aussie Barras (Open Australian Team).

The pool lifesaving competition events focus on the core skills of rescues, swimming and lifesaving principle knowledge with events such as the manikin tow, line throw, swimming with obstacles and initiatives.

To join the Junior Lifeguard Club it is recommended that you have passed our Mantarays swim level as a minimum.

The program is designed for anyone to participate meaning friends can join together, even if they are of different ages or abilities.
 

The best description of the Junior Lifeguard Club is serious fun! There's a serious purpose behind the program. Kids learn skills that could one day save a life.

·         Swimming Skills 

·         Lifesaving Knowledge 

·         Community Education
