Learn to Swim Program set to relaunch

Published on 14 September 2021


The Corowa Aquatic Centre’s Learn to Swim Program is set to re-launch in Term Four.

Given the NSW State-Wide Lockdown restrictions announced in August, which resulted in the CAC facility closure, the Corowa Aquatic Centre Management Team said they made the difficult decision to postpone the launch given there was only one week of the term three program remaining.

Corowa Aquatic Centre's Duty Officer of Public Pools, Jo Laws said given that the lessons would only run for one week, senior swimming instructors felt that in order to meet the true purpose of the aquatic curriculum in building confidence and skills in the water, it would be better to launch the program when lessons could run consecutively, over many weeks, rather than just one week before the school holiday break.

“This was a difficult decision, but made with the very best intentions for our hundreds of junior swimmers that have signed up to be a part of our exciting Learn to Swim Program,” she said.

“Our team will be in contact with our Learn to Swim Parents in the coming days to circulate next term’s timetable. Enrollments continue to climb, with over 270 enquiries to date. We know the program has been so well received, and we look forward to launching it when the setting is right for our junior swimmers.”

Classes on offer range from the ‘Shrimp’ class, for children aged 6-12 months to the ‘Murray Cod’ class which has a strong focus on advanced stroke correction.

Lessons are $16.00 per lesson, which includes the lesson and entry fee and for those children nominated on a family or child membership, they will be eligible for a discount on their lessons, which are priced at $14.00.
