Our first-class programs are designed and maintained by Olympic swimmer and Commonwealth Gold and Silver Medallist, Darren Lange, to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle for life by offering water safety, water confidence, learn to swim and squad programs. Getting your children involved in learn to swim lessons and water safety classes is one of the key steps you can take to help make your children safer in and around the water.

Our programs are designed for children from 3 months of age all the way up to adults. Students progress through our 16-stage lesson structure at their own pace mastering the skills in a level before advancing to the next. We believe we have the very best and most comprehensive program to get your child loving the water for a lifetime of fitness and health.
