Skills Up now offer a new service to Geraldton residents with their own council approved and regularly maintained swimming pool.

Fully endorsed through the Royal Life Saving Society of WA we teach to their high standards and can award certificates on blocks of 5 lessons or more.

We offer private swimming lessons in Geraldton conducted at your own home pool through the warmer months from Mid-October thru to April by certified industry professionals.

Skills Up will travel to towns through-out the Mid-West for communities that are interested in conducting swimming lessons for Infants, school aged children and adults over a one-week block. Minimum student numbers are required, and travel fees will apply.

The Swim and Survive program are interchangeable with the Department of Education Water and Safety program so if your child is having swimming lessons through school, they will be using the same methods.

Catering for individuals from 6 months to 99 years we are safety and survival focused. Offering all aspects of swimming training and stroke correction. Teaching adult non swimmers in their familiar surroundings create a more confident and relaxed environment.

With a maximum of 4 students per private household visit our Swim School Coordinator Dionne Adams and Instructors will bring over 15 years of aquatic experience and knowledge to quickly identify issues and implement corrections.

Prior consultation before lessons commence will mean we find the most productive lesson structure for the pupil (s) and small class sizes will guarantee individual attention and adjustment while remaining focused on the desired outcome.

Lesson time can be divided between participants to cater for different learning levels.
We conduct these lessons back to back in 40 minute blocks so the lesson can be broken into 2 x 20 minute sessions for example for a 3 year old non swimmer and a 7 year old needing stroke adjustment.

Private homeowners with their own pool with full class of 4 students will have the benefit of longer lessons* and competitive pricing**

*Other providers generally offer 30-minute lessons

**Full classes mean pricing is similar to other swim schools.
