Corowa Aquatic Centre’s new Learn to Swim program attracts large number of enrolments 

Corowa Aquatic Centre’s new Learn to Swim program attracts large number of enrolments 
July 27, 2021

A new Learn to Swim program, set to commence at the Corowa Aquatic Centre in August has received over 200 enrolment enquiries from across the Federation region which has resulted in 247 children set to participate in the program.

Classes will be offered every week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays during the school terms and are run with AUSTSWIM or Swim Australia qualified, CPR certified instructors. 

Federation Council is a local government area located in the Riverina region of New South Wales.

Federation Council Mayor Pat Bourke said he was delighted in the response and looked forward to seeing the program begin.

Mayor Bourke notes “the team at the Corowa Aquatic Centre have been working diligently to deliver a fun and affordable Learn to Swim Program that will teach local children the life-long skill of swimming, so they can be comfortable, strong and happy in the water.

“Teaching your child or yourself to swim is one of the most important decisions you will make in life and our Corowa Aquatic Centre team is committed to promoting fun and enjoyment of all things water for swimmers of all abilities.”

Swimming Assessments have begun to support class allocation which ranges from the ‘Shrimp’ class, for children aged six-12 months to the ‘Murray Cod’ class which has a strong focus on advanced stroke correction.

Corowa Aquatic Centre’s Duty Officer of Public Pools, Jo Laws said it was fantastic to see the excitement from children who had attended the centre for their swimming assessments.

Laws adds “we cannot wait to start the program, and have been totally blown away by the response. We already have some classes that are fully booked, with a waiting list and we are exploring other opportunities to increase the number of classes on offer. Our team looks forward to commencing lessons and partnering with local families to grow their children’s skills and confidence in the water.”

Lessons are $16.00 per lesson, which includes the lesson and entry fee and for those children nominated on a family or child membership, they will be eligible for a discount on their lessons, which are priced at $14.00.

More information and enrolments for the Learn to Swim Program are available from the Corowa Aquatic Centre website.
