Swim Squad

The Geelong College Squad program has been developed for students that have completed level 6 of Royal Lifesaving Australia’s Swim and Survive program or equivalent, and are working towards competitive swimming. Squad swimming at The Geelong College Recreation Centre is made easy with highly qualified instructors who deliver a very engaging and interactive program.

Squads run after school Monday to Friday on a timetable basis.

Holiday Intensive Program

The Holiday Intensive Swimming Program at The Geelong College Recreation Centre is a concentrated
swimming and water safety program conducted over five consecutive days. We cater from 3.5-year-olds
and onwards, The program covers all RLSSA Swim and Survive levels. Each holiday program consists of
30-minute lessons conducted each day over five consecutive mornings (Monday - Friday).

Past programs have developed major improvements in our participants, due to small class numbers, a
quiet learning environment and qualified teachers with industry currency.

Swimming during the school holidays is a great alternative to lessons throughout the term for families
with busy schedules.

For those already enrolled in the Recreation Centre’s Learn-to-Swim program, this holiday program will
assist children in consolidating skills they need to complete in order to achieve their next level, or to
kickstart their progress into a new level.

Our next program runs from Monday 30 September – Friday 4 October.

Registrations cost $85 per student.
