Private lessons are available for both children and adults from first time learner to the compete swimmer. Private lessons are customised and programmed based on a person’s swimming competency and end goal.
Swimming teachers and students will be matched on compatibility including swimming ability, age, sex, teacher qualification and experience. Private students will meet with their private swimming teacher prior to the commencement of the first water session.
Private lessons are scheduled outside of mainstream class time. This is to ensure the optimal swimming environment is available for both swimmer and teacher.
A number of private packages are available on request with all private bookings micro-managed by both teachers and admin staff to ensure ultimate outcome is achieved.
Private bookings are in high demand and are accepted on a case-by-case assessment only.
Here’s an email we recently received highlighting the importance of our Water Safety Program.
Hi East Lakes Swim Centre,
I just want to say a huge thank you for everything you do. But in particular I want to praise your Water Safety Program.
On the Easter weekend, myself and my girls were staying at a hotel in Sydney. The hotel had a pool. Both my girls are students at your swimming school. Miss 3 is not yet confident in the pool.
Miss 7 was in the pool. Miss 3 entered the pool when my back was turned and had a drowning incident.
On entering the water, Miss 3 sunk straight to the bottom of the pool. I turned around to see just the very top inch of her head above the water. She was standing vertically on the floor of the pool, nearly completely submerged. Miss 7 realised quickly that her sister could not breathe and swam and lifted her up. She held her above the water and brought her to the side of the pool, where I lifted Miss 3 out of the pool. Miss 3 was frightened and I was very concerned. I monitored her in the coming weeks. I will never be able to erase the image of Miss 3 standing under the water from my mind.
Miss 7 knew what to do and acted calmly and quickly. I believe that this is a credit to your Water Safety programmes at East Lakes. Thank you so much. You really are making a difference to the lives of our children. Please always keep doing what you are doing.
