TEA TREE GULLY LEARNERS (SWIM SCHOOL)

The Tea Tree Gully Learners operates from the School of Little Swimmers, 274 North East Road, Klemzig. Tea Tree Gully Learners is an AUSTSWIM™ accredited non-profit organisation that seeks to maintain an affordable fee structure. This is achieved through good financial management and the contribution of volunteers. The affordable fee structure enables children to learn to swim with high quality coaches and be involved in a well run local organisation.

Swimming lessons allow your child to develop:

  • Skills and confidence in swimming including stroke technique
  • Personal and interpersonal skills through involvement in a sporting activity
  • Fitness. This has positive implications for general health and well being of swimmers
  • Enjoyment of swimming recreationally and later as a competitive sport.

The Tea Tree Gully Learners is a learn to swim service provided by the Tea Tree Gully Amateur Swimming Club Inc. The Tea Tree Gully Learners is a great way for your child to learn the art of swimming whilst having fun in a family friendly environment.
As swimmers progress through the Learn to Swim Stages, they are encouraged to take swimming on as a sport and continue their swimming involvement through the Tea Tree Gully Amateur Swimming Club.

Swimming and Safety

Each year, almost 50 children under the age of 15 drown in Australia. Water safety is one reason why it's so important for children to be introduced to the water in a safe and positive environment and become competent swimmers. By supporting your child to learn to swim you are promoting their safety. They also receive many other benefits including improved health, coordination, fitness, learning capacity and a pathway to a great Australian sport. Although it has a cost for you to get them to lessons they will thank you for it when they grow older.
