​​Access 

Our Access classes provide opportunities for people with additional needs to develop their swimming and water safety skills in a one on one class tailored specifically to their needs and capabilities. Participants are encouraged to understand and enjoy the aquatic environment safely, whilst instruction of skills is adapted to suit the individual participant’s abilities. Our Access classes are facilitated by teachers that hold AustSwim Teacher of Swimming & Water Safety (TSW) and AustSwim People with Disabilities (PWD) Qualifications.

Who is this program suitable for?
This program is suitable for people of any age that have additional needs. These classes are available to people that have additional needs such as learning or intellectual disabilities, physical impairments, behavioral issues and extreme fear of the water.

Classes run for 30 minutes and have a 1:1 Teacher/Child ratio.
Assessments are not required for Access classes however we do encourage participants and their carers to attend the centre for a meet & greet session, to assess class suitability. Please note: We do not recommend these classes for children as a private tutorial session.
