YMCA Swim School Lagoon Pool Panmure



The earlier children get familiar with water, the easier it is for them to adjust to the aquatic environment – and they’ll have a better relationship with water and swimming from the get-go.

And for older swimmers, there’s a whole spectrum of training available – whether it’s getting started and developing vital water safety and swim skills for those who haven’t had experience but would like to learn, or working on technique for a particular stroke in order to improve racing prospects.
