Introducing City of Sydney GOswim to Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre

City of Sydney GOswim is a new fun and effective swimming and water safety program focusing on contemporary experiential and activity-based learning, encouraging and supporting students to explore pathways into competitive and recreational lap swimming.

Implementation of this high-quality, activity-based educational program is designed to better integrate student learning outcomes into real-world settings, offering students the opportunity to:

  • Gain maximum participation and practise time in activities that encourage, mentor and support the learning process where they are active for most of the lesson
  • Encouraging and supporting students to explore competitive swimming with the City of Sydney Aquatic Club
  • Learn and understand essential components of personal survival and water safety elements while concurrently in addition to the development of establishing reliable and effective swimming technique
  • Be supported by professional, qualified teachers as they progress through the curriculum. Be empowered to think, discuss and decide through experiential-based learning where mentoring, guidance and challenge encourages them to use and enhance their knowledge, skill and understanding

Together our goal is to put the fun back into learning to swim and keep swimmers loving our sport for longer.

Learn to Swim lesson will start week commencing 13 January 2020.

If you sign up to City of Sydney GOswim lessons at a City of Sydney Aquatic Centre near you by 13 January 2020 you will receive 2 weeks free, valued at $39.40!
