Bronze Star Courses!!!
Dickson Aquatic Centre will be offering Bronze Star courses again in January!
Bronze Star courses are aimed at developing skills and knowledge of safe water rescue and survival. Children will learn different types of rescues, resusitation awarness and survival skills.
To be eligible for this course your child must be 10 years or older and be able to swim 300m continuously. Lesson will be one hour in duration and be $120 for the 6 lessons. The lesson dates will be the same as our regular swim lessons.
Enrolments must be done in person.
1. Come into the pool during Swim School hours
2. Swim School staff will assess your child to determine the appropriate level
3. Parents and staff will then look at timeslots available
4. Payment must be made at the time of booking
At the beginning of each season all children need to be assessed. Throughout the season we will be monitoring children to determine if they need to change levels.
The assessment is usually 5 to 10 minutes in the water. Depending of the age and experience of the child they will be asked to perform a number of skills. The Swim School staff member will observe them and determine the best level for them.
We do not take enrolments over the phone.
The Dickson Aquatic Centre Swim School aims to provide families with programs that cater from water familiarity and basic swim and survival skills to advanced stroke correction in preparation for squad level swimming. Term programs provide once a week lessons which are convenient and a great way to learn and develop their swimming abilities. The January intensive programs aim to develop and reinforce swimming skills through daily lessons and give kids a great way to spend the summer in the water. One of the swim schools main objectives is to ensure all students become water safe through the Royal Life Saving Swim and Survive initiative.
This season we will be offering a limited amount of private lessons. These lessons are tailored specifically to your child to provide thirty minutes of one on one instruction to develop and further your child’s swimming ability.
If you wish to enrol for private lessons, you will need to enrol for the entire duration of that program. We will not be offering one-off private lessons.
Prices vary and lessons are organised with the swim school staff. These lessons are subject to availability of instructors and pool space. See swim school staff during opening hours or on enrolment day about organising private lessons.
We are unable to give make-up lessons.
