Schools Swimming Programs
YMCA Whittlesea offer Swimming Lesson programs that cater for all ages and abilities, for both Primary & Secondary schools. Our Schools program is highly successful and we strive to deliver a program that excites even the wariest of children. Our YMCA Swimming Lessons program for schools will enable students to experience opportunities for skill acquisition and stroke development, along with water safety and open water education.
YMCA Swimming Lessons are aligned with and fully mapped to the Department of Education’s Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). Being aligned with VELS will enable teachers to have a clearer and more comprehensive understanding of their student’s abilities and also assist school teachers and principals in reporting against the criteria outlined in VELS.
Schools programs run from Monday – Friday, from 9am – 3pm. Schools have a choice in student to teacher ratios (1:7 or 1:10), type of Aquatic Education program (Intensive or Term), the amount of sessions that they require and the day and term in which their program will run (Term 1 – Term 4).
