Tuesday night offers swimming development and beginning to swim techniques while promoting the correct strokes and skills used by competitive swimmers and racing in teams. Children may start from age five.

Club Night (Learn to Swim / Compete) is run by experienced coaches who are ASTA qualified and who have completed pool life saving and first aid courses. Most are current or previous competitive (Squad) swimmers.

Children can begin their first swimming steps with Tuesday Club swimming; we welcome children who are complete beginners as well as improvers. Swimmers progress from the programme's pool to the main pool, where they work on fitness, technique and swimming skills, while also gaining competitive swimming skills. We hold regular fun race nights and love when our Tuesday night swimmers enter. Many children from the Tuesday Club go on to our squad swimming programme.

Our focus is swimming in a fun club environment: swimmers start swimming and learning together, have fun, work on skills and make friendships along the way up to the big pool.

Registrations are from 1 July every year, but enquiries at any other time are welcomed and we would love to have your child swim with us. Many families choose the Tuesday night programme so all the children in the family can swim at the same time. Please note that as a club we do request parent help from time to time.

Payment can be Internet banked to: 03-0732-0237257-00. Add your child’s name as the reference.
No refunds are offered for unexpected pool closures.

Teen Fitness

The Club offers a Teen Fitness class as part of our Tuesday Club Night programme. We introduced this class a couple of years ago to add a new swimming level designed for our older swimmers. This Teen Fitness level caters to those who enjoy swimming and are wanting to maintain fitness and technique but who have decided that competitive swimming may not be for them. The goal is to offer swimmers a lesson which focuses on swimming for fitness while having fun. It caters more to the age group of the swimmers, many of whom would be in their early teens. We hope that by providing another option for the older swimmers, it will encourage them to stay within the Club, keep swimming and maintain their skills.
