Solo swimming lessons

Yarra Leisure is very excited to introduce our Solo Swimming lessons offering in Term 2, 2016, which is designed to give students of all ages the opportunity to get personalised, one-on-one instruction to enhance their water safety, aquatic and stroke skills and endurance. The individualised nature of these lessons allows the student, parent/carer and instructor to commit to a goal together. Goals will vary depending on the individual, from focused instruction of the learn to swim curriculum to coaching in the competitive stroke space. Following a goal setting activity the instructor is then able to design tailored sessions to suit the specific needs and learning style of the student. Instructors can also provide students with drills and coursework in order to practice their skills outside of the lesson time.

The structure and timing of the lessons is similar to our mainstream learn to swim program. Students commit to a 30 minute lesson time for the duration of the term. Solo Lessons are $47.00 per lesson and enrolment is being introduced on an upfront term basis. Lesson days/times are subject to availability and can be either morning or evening lessons.

Students are also entitled to:

  • Two make up lessons per term (time and instructor subject to availability)
  • Fifty per cent off Holiday Intensive Program

In addition to this we know that sometimes it is difficult to commit to the same time each week, particularly for adults. For this reason there is also a Flexi Solo offering, for $62.90 a student can book with an instructor or coach in a one off capacity. These can also be purchased as multi visit pass options in 5 or 10 packs.

If you are interested in enrolling into solo swimming lessons for Term 2, 2016 please complete the solo lessons availability form linked below.
