Learn to Swim
Enrolments for Term 3 2021
With Term 3 just around the corner, JM Robson Aquatic Centre has invited enrolments for further 2021 Learn to Swim classes.
Learning to swim is a life skill and offers many benefits including making new friends and learning new activities. It also helps with growth and development. Many of the students progress through the varying levels of Learn to Swim programs, to then take up swimming as a sport with the local Swim Club or other water-based activities. In this way, the services offered by the centre can foster a lifelong passion for sport and activity.
The centre's Learn to Swim Coordinator is currently taking enrolments and there are limited spots available. Please call the centre on 6352 9160 or text 0484 604 004 for more details and to secure your spot.
