Thank you to all GOswim participants for your continued support this year and we hope you have enjoyed your GOswim lessons.

Please review the following information for important updates about learn to swim program.

Swim School Holiday Closure

Weekly lessons will be paused from Monday 19 December, 2022 and will resume again in 2023 on Monday 16 January.

All current class enrolments are carried over into the new year. This means there is no need to rebook to secure your spot in 2023.

All fortnightly direct debits will be placed on hold, and resume when the program starts again from Monday 16 January.

Important information for Family Memberships

Family Membership fortnightly direct debits will not be automatically paused during the holiday period as part of the process listed above.

If you would like to place your membership on hold please submit a suspension request.

Please note, if you do suspend your family membership, it can only be suspended in full, and this also suspends the adult fitness memberships and access to the fitness centres over the Summer break.

Families will still receive family access into all aquatic facilities during this period. (read more below).

Free Family Access over Summer

A reminder that over the Summer holiday break, Learn to Swim families can continue to access the pool for FREE by tapping in with their learn to swim membership card.

A single learn to swim enrolment allows access for 2 adults and 2 children during the Summer break.

We encourage our learn to swim families to continue accessing our aquatic facilities to maintain your learn to swim skills and to enjoy the Summer weather in our pools.
