Learn To Swim



The Adelaide University Swimming Club is introducing its first ever Learn To Swim program. This program is tailored for any student (18 year or older) who wishes to learn how to swim. A qualified AustSwim coach will be giving the lessons. Lessons will be held in small groups (max. 5 persons) to ensure maximal attention to each participant. At the first lesson, we ask everyone to arrive at 5.45pm, for a 6pm start. The coach will then determine each person's level. You will then be put into two groups according to your level, one group will start their lessons at 6pm and the other at 6.30pm.

It is recommeded that you attend ALL lessons in order to create a positive learning experience. NO refunds or catch up/replacement lessons are possible.

What will you learn?
