Good places to learn to swim?

By M2 28 October 2008 33

Hello dear all,

I would like my son (he is 7 years old) to learn how to swim, could you please help me find a clean pool with good teachers?

Thank you in advance.

What’s Your opinion?

Hey m2,
+1 for kings for babies and dickson aquatic centre for adults.

I’m pretty sure the same theory applies for children..

Point Hut crossing. you just throw them in and they learn quick smart how to do the doggy paddle.

although I was in the bad books with my pup for teaching him this way…

Rowena Cocking in Narrabundah really turned our grand-kids strokes around after two disappointing years elsewhere

CISAC in Belconnen is well priced and professional

Rowena Cocking Swim School in Narrabundah.

Very good, small classes.

+1 for Kings in Macgregor, I’ve been taking my kids there since they were 6 months and we have had a few different instructors over that time and all have been excellent.

The fact that the pool is always really warm is great too (and yes, this will probably instigate speculation of the high urine content, haha)

I hear that the Oasis Leisure Centre is pretty good 😉

i used to take my toddler to erindale but i found the pool very cold and the classes very large, especially for babies.

i am looking into youngs now after people recommending it here, but working full time means saturday morning EARLY! why is it that all these saturday classes are so damn early!

Tuggeranong is opening again soon so that’s an option.

We’ve been taking our kids to Youngs at Kambah while Tugger’s has been closed and we’ll probably keep them there when it re-opens.

As a tip, my wife is a swimming instructor at CISAC, Tuggeranong and Civic and gets a lot of people requesting that their kids go into her classes. I think it’s because she is older (40’s) and has her own kids that she knows how to relate to them. The parents seem to love it and the kids are happier and learn more. As a tip, I’d suggest you watch a lesson or two ASAP and then get your kids into the class with a teacher you like. The center’s get a lot of complaints from parents who believe individual instructors (typically the younger ones) spend too much time stuffing around talking with the kids and not actually teaching.

thoroughly recommend Kings at Macgregor for reasons stated by others above. very personal yet professional.

BTW, King Swim Macgregor is managed by former Olympian, Chris Nunn. All staff make an effort to know the kids (and your) names too – from reception to instructors. It appears King Swim Calwell is still being built… King Swim website
