Learn to Swim 

As the weather is starting to cool down we thought we would share with you some of the reasons that our students should continue with their lessons and perhaps a few hints to survive the winter months.

  • Students are more likely progress as they continue to develop new skills and refine existing skill.
  • Most  children who stop in winter do not retain the skills that they have acquired  are more likely to go backwards in their skills due to lack of practice.
  • Swimming lessons during winter allow students to develop water confidence in readiness for Summer , the season when they are most likely to spend the most time in the water and enjoy family based water activities.
  • Swimming keeps children active throughout the winter and off the couch.
  • Helps to keep children socially connected and encourages new friendships while having fun.
  • Demand for lessons is high in the warmer months and it is often difficult to secure your spot if you wait too long.
  • AS your swimming lesson membership offers access to the pool outside of lesson it can be a great way to have some family fun n a wet weekend.

A couple of hints to help survive the winter that always worked for our family.

  • Have a warm shower and bring the children’s PJ’s to go home in.
  • Always dry off their hair and maybe a beanie as well.
  • Don’t go out into the cold in wet bathers and a towel.
  • I sometimes bought with us a warm drink as well.

**Reminder there will be no swim lessons on Monday the 10th of June 2019

Swim and Survive

Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre has partnered with Royal Life Saving to provide our community with the Swim and Survive program.

The program has been updated to align with the recently released National Swimming and Water Safety framework. Swim and Survive is a comprehensive swimming and water safety initiative that seeks to increase the swimming and water safety skills of all Australian children in order to prevent drowning and increase participation in safe aquatic activity.

Learn to swim, swimming lessons and infant aquatics are all terms commonly used across the aquatic industry for programs that seek to build swimming skills. Swim and Survive is all of these, but most importantly it ensures that the essential components of personal survival and water safety are provided, in addition to a process of developing strong and effective swimming technique.

Infant, Pre-School and School Aged Classes

Each program is structured into skill strands that ensure a balanced, comprehensive instructional approach to a child’s aquatic education.
