At Southern Swim School, we highly recommend and encourage two lessons per week to maximise skill acquisition, confidence and learning outcomes.

We value and promote parents’ expectations of lessons to be high, however we also strongly believe that commitment to consistent and quality swimming lessons will ensure that expectations are not only met but exceeded. With this commitment to swimming, we are extremely confident in promising that your child will be capable of swimming independently at a very young age, and that the skills and techniques acquired in our program will allow quicker progression through our levels. This will also result in your swimmers maintaining their motivation to achieve.

If your child enrols in one lesson per week the current pricing is $24.50/week including GST.

If your child enrols in two lessons per week, the second class is 30% off, so total pricing per week is $41.65 including GST.

Contact us for further information about pricing. Prices are subject to change over time.

Enrolment Policy

Our Learn to Swim Program operates perpetually. We will close for 3 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period. Lessons year round are the best way to ensure consistency and continual progression for your children.  

Learn to Swim Classes operate as a monthly block, and lessons are charged on a pro rata basis. This means that you will only be charged for the number of lessons assigned by the calendar in the monthly block.  

If you begin classes after the first lesson of the month, your first months’ fees will be calculated on a prorated basis, and this initial payment will be taken as an upfront, over the counter payment. Fees are as follows: 

  • Enrolments are possible after the commencement of the month but are dependent on availability.  
  • All new students who are over the age of 3 and can swim completely independently without the use of flotation aids require an assessment prior to enrolment.
  • 2 lessons per week is highly recommended for the best and fastest learning outcomes.  


We are happy to answer any questions for prospective or current parents about our swim programs and policies. Please feel free to drop us a line or call us.
