Learn to Swim

Due to instructor shortages Learn to Swim classes will not be available during the 2022-2023 season. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Mermaid Tails & Fins

The use of mermaid tails and mono fins are not permitted at any of Council's Swimming Centres.

Please find below the risks associated with these fins:

  • Dramatically increases the risk of drowning, shallow water blackout and hypoxia.
  • Binding the legs together reduces the ability to balance and support yourself.
  • Restrict movement of the legs; preventing children from using a freestyle kick which is most commonly used – especially in situations of distress.
  • Requires constant close 1 on 1 supervision which is cannot be sustained in busy aquatic centre.
  • Reported cases of children becoming stuck upside down
