Opportunity, Trust & Community

Featured

Bayside Swim School exists to make swimming lessons more accessible and affordable for families.

Kids with Swimming Noodles

  • We want children to have the same coaches week in, week out because trust and
    consistency is important.
  • We want families to feel welcome, consulted and involved in their child’s development.
  • We want to provide personalised coaching to bring out their best in each lesson.

With these aims in mind, we partner with the School, P&C and the Swim Club to provide a schedule of lessons, stroke correction and squad for swimmers of all levels.

Through small class sizes and the same coaches week in, week out; we focus on individual attention and care, carefully staged development and just the right balance of challenge and support.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at the pool !

Learn to Swim – How Young is Too Young?

Common Questions:

  • how important is it that I teach my kids to swim early?
  • If my child doesn’t start early will they be disadvantaged.
  • I want my child to be safe, can you teach them not to drown?

As a parent of 2 boys AND a professional swimming teacher, I’m often asked questions about when parents should start swimming lessons. My answer to this is somewhat controversial – I tell them, most kids can’t really learn to swim until they’re 3 so trying to teach them before that can be a waste of time and money. Continue reading

Swim Assessment Day

It’s almost time to come out of hibernation and back to the pool.

Starting the season in the right class is really important. We’re holding assessments on Sunday 14th September at Wynnum State School pool. Whether you’re a family joining us for the first time, or returning swimmers, fill in our swim assessment booking form to register for your child’s time slot.

Winter Swimming Program

It’s again time to say good night to a hugely successful swimming season but with such a great talent base, it would be a shame to let the kids ‘go to pasture’, so this year we’ve introduced a Winter Swimming Program in partnership with Manly Pool.

This program is aimed at those squad kids who need a ‘maintenance’ program until Term 4 swimming starts again. For these kids we’ll be running sessions at Wynnum State School on Tuesdays at 5.30pm and Friday mornings at 7am for the first 5 weeks of Term 2. After this, our squad will combine with the Manly Pool squad for the remainder of the winter season.

For further information on our Winter Swimming Program or the Holiday Swimming Intensives, contact Matthew & Rachel via email: matthew@baysideswimschool.com.au or 0448 434 885.

Holiday Learn to Swim Intensives

Registrations are open for our holiday Learn to Swim intensives. These were so successful in Jan – we’re looking forward to another 2 weeks of fun!  This time around, lessons are 45min over 5 consecutive days and limited to just 4 students per class for learn to swim and 8 places for Fins and Mini-Squad levels.  You can register online here: http://baysideswimschool.com.au/registration/holiday-learn-to-swim-intensive

Summer Holiday Learn to Swim

We’ve finalised our learn to swim intensive program which will run through January these school holidays.

The learn to swim intensives are a 5 day block of classes designed to give the kids swimming a big boost before the new term starts in February.  Parents can choose one of 6 different lesson blocks available, to suit their family and holiday commitments.

Lessons will run in the mornings at Manly West State School and the afternoons at Wynnum State School pools.  The price for a 5 day block is $75.00.

Easier Ways to Pay

For a little while, we’ve been looking for automated ways to help parents spread the cost of swimming fees across the term.

Beginning Term 4, we’re pleased to introduce a new direct debit scheme managed by Ezidebit, which will automatically spread term fees across fortnightly payments.  There is a small service fee, but at just $1/fortnight, we hope that this facility will make life easier for our swimming families.

You’ll find links to the relevant forms on our Pricing page.

Swimming Classes Come to Manly West State School

We’re pleased to announce a partnership with Manly West State School, where we will introduce classes starting Term 4 2013.

Working closely with the school and swim club, we will offer Learn to Swim classes for children aged 3 and up; stroke correction & squad for older children and specific sessions for teens and adults.

Classes will run before school, after school and in the evenings on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. We’ll also offer mid-morning Learn to Swim classes for littlies.

Registrations for Term 4 open this week and you can register on the website. You can also find our more on Facebook or by contacting Matthew & Rachel: matthew@baysideswimschool.com.au or 0448 434 885.

Term 2 Schedule

We’re pleased to confirm the details for swimming classes in Term 2 which will start the first week back at school.

For those who wish to continue as is, the good news is that you can!  All existing classes, times and prices will continue as normal.   

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve also had some great suggestions from parents. Based on your input, we’ll also be adding a couple of options to the program:

1.       For families with winter sport commitments, we’ll offer a “once a week”  registration, allowing the kids to keep their swimming technique and fitness.

2.       We’ll be introducing sessions immediately after school to tie in with school pick up.

3.       We’ll be offering casual swimming for adults who would also like to exercise whilst at the pool with their kids.

Pricing for Term 2 remains the same and with the extra options above, is as follows:

  • Junior/Senior Squad:  $200 for 10 weeks
  • “Once a Week” Squad registration: $125 for 10 weeks
  • Learn to Swim: $150 for 10 weeks
  • Parents Squad:  $12.50 per session
  • Adults casual swimming: $5.00
