Lessons for kids

Learning to become a confident swimmer is a vital life skill in our Australian climate. At HBF Arena we believe that swimming should be taught in a fun, safe and positive environment which promotes skill development.

HBF Arena's Learn to Swim term and holiday lessons accommodate many swimmers from beginner through to level 13, swimmers aged from 6 months to 15 years.

Our swim schools offer a variety of programmes suitable for children of all abilities from beginners through to squad swimmers.

We recently introduced the Royal Life Saving Society’s levels 8 and 9 so children could further refine their swimming technique and increase their fitness and stamina. This proved so successful, that we then extended the programme further to include 10, 11 and 12 and for the first time in term 3 level 13! These levels are perfect for children looking to learn advanced survival skills and increase their fitness in a non-competitive environment who enjoy a challenge.

Small class sizes ensure individualised instruction. Swimming lessons are conducted by fully qualified and experienced teachers and lessons are held in world class pools heated to 29ºC all year round.

HBF Arena swim schools are endorsed by the Royal Life Saving Society of Australia, using the Swim and Survive Continuum and are registered with Swim Australia.

Kids swimming lessons

Parent/baby classes (6 months to 3 years)

Classes are designed to establish your baby's confidence and enjoyment of the water while bonding with you. Lesson guidelines are available at time of registration or can be collected on the first lesson.

Pre-school classes (3 to 5 years)

Children will explore the water in a safe, supervised and heated environment, learning water confidence and beginners stroke development. Classes are conducted without parent participation to allow children to establish their independence in the water and interaction with other children.

School age classes (5 to 15 years)

Structured on a series of levels, classes focus on stroke technique, developing strength and water confidence in a fun learning environment. These classes are based on the Royal Life Saving Society's Swim and Survive Levels 1 to 13.
