Infants and children

Designed by Royal Life Saving Australia and supported by Life Saving Victoria, the Swim and Survive program is delivered at BALC by our AUSTSWIM qualified staff. Enjoyable and inclusive, Swim and Survive provides the perfect balance of swimming and water safety – for all Australians, of all ages and all abilities.

The comprehensive and balanced curriculum will guide learning through progressive steps, providing an opportunity to grasp the fundamental skills through to advancing to more challenging skills increasing in endurance and complexity. Divided into 3 award levels, the Swim and Survive program is designed for children from 6 months of age to 13+ years.

The Junior Lifeguard Club is a unique aquatic program perfect for teenagers, designed to allow students the opportunity to gain advanced water safety and survival skills beyond those taught in the Swim & Survive program. Students have the opportunity to work towards gaining their Bronze Rescue Awards with a Lifesaving Victoria endorsed trainer in a weekly lesson during school term. In addition to learning critical skills in advanced aquatic rescue, spinal injury management and resuscitation, students also gain skills in leadership, problem solving and using initiative; all in a fun, relaxed, nurturing environment. A water aerobics component has also been introduced. There are two separate Junior Lifeguard Club sessions during the week, scheduled on Monday 5:30pm to 6:30pm and Friday 5:30pm to 6:30pm.

The Pre-Club Program is a stepping stone from the Swim & Survive Program to a swimming club. Qualified instructors work to build endurance and correct finer details of stroke technique, whilst also teaching tumble turns, dive starts, reading the lap clock and checking heart rate. The Pre-Club Program is held on a Tuesday evening between 5:30pm and 6:30pm.

Adults

Private and group lessons are on offer for adults, delivered by qualified teachers in a friendly and non-threatening environment. We focus on helping adults build their confidence and stroke technique. These classes are one-on-one with the teacher with flexibility in skills taught dependent on the goals of the individual. Our group adult lessons are available for all ages and abilities, held each Wednesday during the school term between 6pm and 7pm.

Cost: $20.90 per lesson

All abilities lessons
