Swim Youth (11+ years)

Ballina Swim School offers lessons to youth from 11 years. Lessons are in small groups and designed individually for each swimmer. Youth all learn at different rates, and this is reflected in an environment where you can learn at your own pace. We have four stages in our Youth swim program with Youth progressing up to the next class when they are ready. Youth can also complete the higher awards from Royal Life Saving stages 10-16 when their swimming is proficient.

Youth Swim enables swimmers who don’t want to participate in squad an opportunity to continue to develop their swimming and water safety skills.
