Vicswim Classes

Vicswim classes start on the Monday 6th of January – 5 days of swimming lessons and water safety skills from 10am to 1.45pm.  There are still places available for the second week of lessons beginning the 13 January.  For more information or to enrol,  please visit http://www.vicswim.com.au

As a result of the Vicswim classes, both the Golden Girls (women only swim sessions) and The Nuggets (men only sessions) will commence earlier from 9am to 10am for these two weeks of January. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Nuggets? Golden Girls? Huh?

The Nuggets and the Golden Girls are, respectively, our men-only and women-only swim sessions.  Ideal for those amongst us who’d like to do a few casual laps without being bombed by an eight-year old.

Ladies can safely take to the pool Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11am to 12pm.  Men have their chance at the lanes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-12pm.  (Both 9-10am while Vicswim classes are underway.)

There’s no cost if you hold a season pass. But for those of you who don’t, an honour system applies (just leave your payment in the kiosk). The first regular member of the Nuggets or Golden Girls to turn up will open the pool (so, if you’re new and the first to arrive, hang fire until someone opens the gate).

Please be aware that no Lifeguard is on duty for these sessions.
