Brookvale Lessons

We are a COVID compliant swim school

All learn-to-swim lessons and entry level squad sessions, are held in our heated three lane 18 metre pool from Monday through to Saturday at 9B Green Street, Brookvale.

We have a flexible pool layout to accommodate the different needs of the instructor and students.

The pool is overlooked by a small poolside seated area and a comfortable viewing deck on the first floor for parents/caregivers. Here you will also find a dedicated playroom to entertain siblings who aren’t in the pool.

Class levels work on approximate ages and ability, please see program break down below.
