*Swimming Lessons DO NOT RUN on Public Holidays

Lessons are not conducted on gazetted public holidays. If you miss a lesson due to a public holiday Students and entitled to a make-up lesson if arranged prior to the Public Holiday taking place.

Alternatively we recommend you make use of your membership benefits which include unlimited pool access at any of the Dandenong Leisure Facilities to practice the skills learnt in lessons and for younger children to maintain familiarity with the aquatic environment.

Lessons are conducted 7 days a week.  Some families choose to enrol on a day that isn’t impacted by public holidays.

What is a make-up lesson?

If your child misses their usual lesson and you advise us prior to the lesson starting that you can’t attend, you are eligible for a make-up lesson. Members can access a maximum of four make-up lessons per calendar year.

A make-up lesson allows your child to participate in another class of the same level.

Make-up lesson availability is dependent on vacancies in other classes. We wish we could, but unfortunately we can’t always give you the same teacher or a time that you may ideally prefer.

To book a makeup lesson, call the centre on 9767 3100 and our friendly receptionist will be able to arrange this for you.
