Whether you're looking for school swimming and water safety lessons, a fun event for your students, or have something else in mind – we've got you covered.

Our range of programs are suitable for preschool, primary and secondary schools across all ages and levels.

Your students will be able to develop their swimming skills, learn about water safety and have fun in the water. We can even tailor our swimming lessons and programs to meet your school's needs.

Find out more about our swimming lessons and programs below.

Swimming lessons with the Y

Students will learn vital swimming skills, develop their swimming strokes and gain knowledge and understanding of different aquatic situations. Students will also take part in water safety education and open water scenarios, learning important survival skills.

Our program is aligned to the National Swimming and Water Safety Framework, which ensures that students work towards national benchmarks. We can deliver the program across your chosen number of sessions (we recommend at least five).

We'll also award the Victorian Water Safety Certificate to any student who achieves the required competencies.

Session options

Sessions take place between 9:15am and 3.00pm and run for 45 minutes. We also offer an intensive program option that runs across two weeks, or we can arrange another format with you.


Teacher / student ratio 1:5 1:6 1:7 1:8 1:9
Price per student per session $9.70 $9.50 $9.30 $9.10 $8.90


Water safety incursions

We can come to you and provide classroom presentations and activities relating to swimming, water safety and personal survival. Our interactive and engaging activities are suitable for students of all ages and can be a great addition to your in-pool programs with us.

School carnivals

Our pools are the perfect venue to host your school carnival. Our outdoor 50 metre pool is available from November to May while our indoor 25 metre pool is available year round. We even have seasonal outdoor pools across Baw Baw which are available for school carnivals from December to April.

We also offer aquatic fun days, before school training and swimming time trials. Pricing for these programs is available upon request.


Kiosk and café facilities are available at our centre and at all Baw Baw Pools.
