Learn to Swim

We are thrilled to announce the re-introduction of Infants, Junior and Beginners classes into our COVID-Safe Term 4, Modified Drop-In Program.

Students who attended our Term 3 program will be able to make an enrolment enquiry through a Learn to Swim and Squads Registration form. This enquiry will be received by our Customer Service department at Enfield Aquatic Centre and we will make contact with you to arrange your enrolment. 

We will also be extending our enrolments to new and returning students and will recommence assessments through our Burwood Council Eventbrite portal

To ensure a COVID-Safe environment, our skilled AUSTSWIM accredited instructors will be continuing to teaching out of the water on the pool deck until further notice. To assist with infants, junior and beginner levels each student will be required to have a parent/guardian in the water with them.

The staff at Enfield Aquatic Centre are continuing to monitor NSW Health guidelines and exploring alternative ways of safely delivering our aquatic programs and we will keep you updated on progress.
