Learn to Swim

The Wenona Learn to Swim (LTS) programs are based on years of experience in aquatic education, focusing on teaching our students skills for life. Being able to swim well is a pathway to enjoying swimming recreationally or competitively but is also a skill applicable to a range of other sports and an excellent form of exercise and cross-training.

Our aim is to help everyone achieve their swimming goals, whatever they may be. Classes are held in our new state-of-the-art, purpose-built heated indoor aquatic facility. Our staff possess nationally recognised qualifications in teaching swimming and water safety through Austswim, ASCTA, or RLSSA.

Wenona LTS Principles:

  • Respect for aquatic environments and water safety skills are an essential aspect of our programming philosophy.
  • We have a strong systemised teaching program which ensures a consistent approach to all our classes.
  • Our instructors bring their own personality to their classes which creates the optimum learning environment and supplements our systems.
  • Children learn in different ways so wherever possible we adapt our teaching strategies to suit each individual student.
  • Our learning focus is on good technique and teaching fundamental skills for appropriate swimmer progression which is placed above extending the distance swum each class.
  • Our instructors praise effort aligned with our teaching philosophy on correct technique.
  • We strive to maximise the practice time within every class we teach.

We offer learn to swim programs to Wenona students, their siblings, and children of Wenona staff members. (Opening up to the wider community soon!)
