Learn to Swim

Learn to swim

The Y provides a safe environment and experienced instructors to help you or your child have fun, grow, learn new skills and take their swimming to the next level.

Swimming Programs are offered to children from 4 months of age through to adults and swimmers with special needs and provide a unique opportunity for children to develop their skills (physical, intellectual and personal) in a progressively challenging environment.

Our Austswim or Swim Australia qualified instructors will focus on your child's individual ability and encourage fun through games, instruction and social interaction. Our teachers will help students improve their individual abilities by encouraging them to progress at their pace.

Programs are offered as a 10-week term of lessons following state school term dates or in school holiday blocks. Program dates do vary, so please contact Wirac to be informed of the programs and registration dates.

What’s Happening at WIRAC over Spring & Summer 2019

So Winter draws to a close and Spring is upon us. With the warmer months comes the busy season for the Centre and we do appreciate our members and users patience as we conclude not just our massive renovation project (the Heat Pump Project) but also the reduced hours over the cooler months.

We will be moving back to longer hours of operation during September and October and these hours are listed alongside this text on the web page. We have some new programs and services starting and these are listed below. Please check in with reception at the Centre for further details about these listed activities
