Swimming lessons have concluded for the 2021-2022 summer season.

Thank you to all our members who participated in the 2021-2022 summer season of swimming lessons.

As Carlton Baths is an outdoor pool, we do not run swimming lessons over the winter period.

We are excited to restart our swimming lesson program at Carlton Baths for Term 4. 

If you are interested in joining, please keep an eye out for the enquiry form on our website closer to the time to be added to the wait list.

It's never to late to learn how to swim. Our aim is to help you develop an appreciation for safe activity in the water, and learn vital survival skills not just for the pool but for rivers, lakes and the ocean.

  • Beginner classes develop water confidence through buoyancy and mobility. We'll gradually introduce steps to swimming.
  • Intermediate and advanced classes focus on stroke refinement and correction.

Our teachers are AUSTSWIM accredited, and provide a safe, social and encouraging learning environment.

You'll learn to:

  • develop and refine swimming strokes
  • cooperate with and respect others in an aquatic environment
  • make safe and sensible decisions and solve problems in and around water.
