Swimming lessons at Mansfield pool
FROM January 2020, swimming lessons will be available at the Mansfield swimming pool.
Classes on offer will include pre-school programs, after-school programs, adult programs and the popular LAPRZ program, which is designed for children transitioning from learn to swim lesson to squad.
“Whether it’s at the lake, our rivers, or the Mansfield swimming pool, enjoying the water is part of Mansfield life,” Mayor Marg Attley said.
“Our community loves swimming and it’s so important that everyone, young and old, learn sufficient water safety skills to keep them safe.”
The learn to swim program will be coordinated by Jas Reid with the support of swim teachers recently employed by council.
Programs will run for six weeks commencing on
Monday, January 27, and be based on Life Saving Victoria’s Swim and Survive Framework.
Depending on the age and level of the swimmer, classes will include all the essentials of water safety, water familiarisation, personal water safety, survival knowledge and steps towards stroke development.
Expressions of interest can be made directly at the Mansfield swimming pool, emailed to learn[email protected] mansfield.vic.gov.au or by calling the pool on 5775 8602.
The Mansfield swimming pool is open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7am to accommodate lap swimmers.
On other days, it opens at 10am and closes at 6pm every day, unless opening hours are extended due to extreme heat.
