Missed lessons

Make-up lessons:

  • must be taken within the same block as the missed lessons unless alternative arrangements are made,
  • are not available in lieu of regular lesson payments, and
  • will be forfeited where a customer cancels or does not attend the make-up lesson.

The pool is closed on public holidays. Should your swimming lesson fall on a public holiday, refer to guidelines above for missed lessons.

What to wear

Goggles are optional; however, it is recommended that in the early stages of learning, students do not wear goggles because it enables them to experience the sensation of water in their eyes. This minimises panic should they accidentally fall into a pool.

Caps are required for all classes except Swim and Play and Beginner groups.

To help students to adjust to wearing googles and caps, practise wearing them in the bath or shower at home.

Swim nappies must be worn by babies and toddlers.

Learn to swim at home

Get Set & Go! (Australia) offers swim coaching for all ages and abilities at the convenience of your home pool. Prices vary depending on location.

Programs for schools

Get Set & Go! (Australia) provides three to four experienced and qualified swim teachers to plan, implement and evaluate the school aquatics program. Each class is divided into three to four ability groups to enable all students to be challenged and learn the skills of swimming in a safe and supportive environment. The students are assessed regularly through close observation and as they improve, students progress to a more appropriate group.

Aquatic skills include: pool safety rules, safe entries and exits, water confidence, freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly, diving, starts and finishes and tumble-turns. Where the depth of the pool is suitable, life-saving skills are also available.
