Swim Class Details

Free Assessments

The Meadows Swim School offers a free assessment for new students. As some students may have come from other swim schools it is vitally important that the student is placed in a class where their skill level will be challenged. The assessment allows us to discuss with you why a particular level will suit your child.

Class Size & Duration

Parents & Babies classes maximum 7 students per class lasting 30 minutes. Tadpole, Octopus and Octopus Advanced afternoon classes maximum 4 students per class for 30 minutes. Minnow classes maximum 5 students per class for 30 minutes. Stingray and Groper squads 45 minutes per class, maximum 8 students.

Term & Class Prices

All learn-to-swim courses costs $15 per class. The average 10 week term, therefore, costs $150. Terms are the same as local public school terms. A $20 non-refundable deposit applies to all students. The deck coaching program starts at $12 per session, based on the number of sessions per week the swimmer wishes to swim.

Discounts & Payments

We offer discounts for multiple students or lessons. If you have more than one child, or attend multiple lessons per week, we offer a 10% discount. Payment in one instalment is preferred, but there are a number of payment options available to clients from BPay, cheque, cash or multiple instalments if requested and approved.

Squad Training

The Meadows Swim School is committed to competitive swimming. The swim school is a feeder for the Bomaderry swim club, with some fantastic results over the years from school swimming all the way to the top level of Australian age group swimming. Come and talk to us about your child’s inclusion.

Our deck coaching program is initially a technique and racing skill acquisition based program, in our junior squad. Athletes who wish to progress to a higher level of competition are catered for in our competitive program. There are a number of conditions to being involved in this program, which can be discussed with our head coach.

Philosophy

successful swim family

The Meadows Swim School philosophy is threefold. Firstly, our mission is to teach students through building their confidence. Confident children will take on most challenges. The journey for students should be fun, challenging and safe.

Secondly, the school prides itself on being a technically based program. Learning to swim well takes a number of years to perfect. We are the only swim school in the Shoalhaven to have produced state and national level swimmers.

Thirdly, the school values communication at all levels, both positive and negative. We want the learn-to-swim experience to be a rewarding and happy one for all, from student to parent. You can learn more about our philosophy, research, and teaching methods over at our blog.
