PLEASE NOTE – Lessons & Squads run as normal on Thursday 29th March, Monday 2nd April (Easter Monday) and Tuesday 3rd April (Easter Tuesday) 2018.

Stormy Weather Procedure

NB: In all weather situations our staff will be at the pool.  In the event of thunderstorms we are under the guidance of the Wesley Sports Club staff who will close the pool if it is deemed unsafe.  If the pool is closed we will conduct dry land lifesaving activities for the lessons.  The Sports Club will make the decision as to when it is safe enough to reopen the pool.

fbPlease also LIKE US on the Watkins Southside Swimming Facebook page.  This page will be used for emergency notices such as pool closures during thunderstorms.

 

New Swimmers to the program can complete an online Enrolment request (Please click on Online Enrolment Forms on the left side of the website) and complete a New Swimmer Enrolment form.

 

We are a Lifesaving Society Endorsed Swim School. Our stages/certificates are the same as those used by The Royal Lifesaving Society and very similar to the Education Department Interm programs.

Our philosophy is that children should be strong and confident in passing a stage. We believe our standards are high and in the long run will produce much better results for your child’s swimming.

All our staff are Austswim accredited. All hold a current Police Clearance/Working with Children Check and Resuscitation qualification.

We cater for children 4 years and up. Our swimming lessons run in 4 blocks over the summer season:
