Our YMCA Swimming Lessons are fully mapped to and aligned with Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). We provide programs suitable for primary or secondary school students. In a practical environment students will develop physical skills, knowledge and understanding of a range of aquatic situations and participate in essential water safety and survival skills education.
Classes are usually run in the following format:
- Children are assessed at the start of the program and placed in their correct group for the duration of the program
- The program runs for approximately 10 weeks during the school term
- Classes run once a week for around 30 minutes
- Classes have a teacher to student ratio of 1:10
