swimming lessons save lives


My daughter of 20 months, has been swimming now with teacher Lyndsay at Swim Safe Academy for 8 weeks and we couldn’t be happier. Lyndsay is an outstanding teacher, super patient and kind. My daughter has been slightly nervous of the water and each class, her confidence grows and she gets so excited when it’s swimming time! I cannot recommend Lyndsay and Swim Safe Academy enough!

My son Ryker loves teacher Paula. She drills them hard but does it in a playful and fun way. She is an excellent swimming coach with a great passion for teaching.

Swim Safe Classes

Parent & Baby Classes

4 months +

It is never too early to introduce your baby to the water! Swimming lessons are a great way for parents to bond with their children while teaching them all about water safety. From a young age, our babies learn vital water confidence and swim safety skills – holding on, safety turns and gentle dips and dives when they are ready. These lessons are 30 minutes and boost many developmental skills along the way.

What to bring to your lesson:

  • Baby swimming nappy
  • Mom or Dads swimming wear

Water Confidence

2 years+

Teaching children to become happy confident swimmers in a safe, fun environment. We introduce interactive swimming games using noodles, boards and balancing mats. Songs and repetition are used to build strong swim foundations like streamlining, floating, breathing, kicks and pulls.

  • 30 minute group classes of a maximum of 4
  • Private lessons are available for these classes.

Stroke Development

pre-squad and the big pool! 

Our Stroke development teacher and child program is designed to get your child ready for pre-squad and the big pool! Children learn all four strokes and gain endurance swimming the length of the pool, with loads of fun activities and games to make learn to swim fun.

Adult Swimming Classes

Adult swimming lessons provide swimmers with the opportunity to learn to swim. We cater for all abilities, so if you’re a complete beginner or just out of practice our adult swimming lessons are designed to suit you. It is never too late to learn to swim and our friendly trainers ensure all participants feel safe and welcome so they can fully enjoy the experience of learning to swim as an adult.
