Learn to Swim Program at the Huonville Pool

The Huonville Swimming Pool will open its gates on 29 October with its traditional free open day. The pool offers an extensive Learn to Swim Program that will run throughout the entire summer season. Swimming lessons will begin on 7 November and will continue through until March. Classes are taught by accredited AUSTSWIM instructors who can accommodate all levels of ability, skill and confidence, from water familiarisation for beginners through to stroke correction for advanced swimmers.

According to statistics from Royal Life Saving Australia, 22 children aged 0-4 years drown each year on average in Australia. Just over half of these drownings happen in pools and over three quarters occur due to a fall. Children aged one to two years old are at the greatest risk of drowning.

Learning how to swim is an essential life skill and potentially a lifesaving one. Swimming lessons teach awareness in and around the water and help to prevent accidents by teaching water safety skills and building confidence. A foundation is built for a lifetime of enjoyment of water-based sports and leisure activities.

Visit our Huonville Swimming Pool page for upcoming Learn to Swim Programs. To enrol in swimming lessons, please call the pool office on 6264 1279 or mobile 0417 791 372.

The pool will be open seven days a week until Sunday 2 April 2023 and will be open every day except Christmas Day.
