Waterbabies LEARN TO SWIM

Our Waterbabies program focuses on developing technique from an early age in a safe, supportive and fun environment.

Our Swim School philosophy is that teaching aquatic skills helps with making good life choices, beginning with important water safety skills. We follow this with creating options for children and adults to experience wider aquatic environments to continue development.

Enrolments for our MSAC Swim School Program and ‘One-off’ Holiday Lessons are now open! Enrolments must be made seven days in advance of starting lessons.
