Your guide to Ballarat Swimming Lessons for babies, toddlers, children and adults, and Ballarat Pools & Water Play Spaces
280 people died from drowning in Australia between July 2015 and June 2016 (Royal Life Saving Report 2016), and that does not account for the number of people who suffered life threatening injuries and life long disability as a result of near-drowning. And although Australia has relatively low drowning rates compared to other countries, it is still far too many for an, often, preventable cause.
For Ballarat locals, we have gathered the names, numbers and starting prices of local swimming schools that operate all year round. And during Summer there are often free, or very low cost, swimming programs at the outdoor swimming pools. Swimming lessons are lessons for life, and can start from around 6 months old.
