MLC Learn To Swim Program

The MLC Swim School was established in 1991 and provides opportunities for students to participate in a wide range of swimming programs out of school hours.

The program is offered to both MLC and non-MLC students and has three distinct levels:

• Learn to Swim classes

• Non-competitive squad

• Junior and senior competitive swim squad program.

Learn to Swim classes are conducted on Monday to Thursday inclusive, after school and Saturday mornings.

Classes run for 30 minutes and are conducted by our AUSTSWIM qualified instructors.

The focus on this program is on-water safety, building swim skills, technique and endurance across all four strokes.

The junior non-competitive squad is conducted for 60 minutes per session. Swimmers can choose from five sessions offered per week but generally choose to swim 1 – 2 sessions per week. The squad is aimed at swimmers who have completed the Learn to Swim program and who enjoy swimming but it is not their main sport. The competitive swim squad program is designed for swimmers who would like to extend their skills and who have the ability and commitment to train and compete regularly.

Swimmers in the competitive program become members of MLC Aquatic
the swim club based at MLC and run by parent volunteers. MLC staff and coaches work closely with MLC Aquatic to ensure all swimmers get the most from their swimming. The MLC swimming staff are committed to helping individuals develop a life-long love of swimming and water safety, based on skill development, stroke improvement, fun and friendship within a supportive environment.
