Swimming Lessons at Summit

Our incredible North Coast lifestyle is based around the water – from pools to rivers, creeks, dams and, of course, the ocean. We understand how imperative it is that your child learns and embraces water safety, then becomes a competent swimmer. Your child’s safety and confidence in the water is our priority – in fact, it could save their life!

We pride ourselves on our quality team of long-term, AustSwim qualified swimming instructors, who are all experienced in teaching the vital life skill of swimming, as well as stroke technique. Our instructors are passionate about ensuring you and your family are safe and confident in the water.

Summit Fitness Centre is a family-owned business, with children of our own. We thank you for entrusting us with teaching your child to swim. We will honour your trust by doing a great job in helping your child learn to swim. Our aim is to foster a love of swimming for recreation, exercise and/or fitness.

Our Learn to Swim classes run for 30 minutes each. Your child receives individual attention from our dedicated, fully qualified instructors due to our small group sizes. We also offer private, one-to-one lessons where the instructor focuses solely on your child’s development.

We’re proud to say that thousands of local children have become strong swimmers through our swim program we run at Summit Fitness Centre. We provide a unique and fun approach to swimming and water safety which gets great results.

Adult Learn to Swim classes are also available – or you may wish to brush up on your swimming technique or improve your fitness. Summit’s experienced instructors can assist with your swimming and stroke development requirements.
