The Emily Seebohm Aquatic Centre offers kids swimming lessons locally. The following are their current classes:

TADPOLE: 3 months-5 months FREE CLASS.

This introduction program is designed to educate parents as well as introduce their babies to the aquatic environment.

These classes are designed to promote confidence in both parent and child through age-based activities.
