You wanted to know…

There are a few things that set us apart. Firstly, the tranquil atmosphere of Elixr Health Club Bondi Junction provides the ideal teaching environment for our nationally qualified Swim School instructors. Secondly, we teach tried and tested swim programs to small classes – we stay below the recommended number of participants per class. And thirdly, our instructors focus on improving technique before increasing distance to ensure that those children who progress to squad training do so with the correct technique in place.
We run on 10-week terms regardless of school holidays (public or private) and may on occasion run a week into the school holidays.
National guidelines recommend that babies younger than six months do not attend public pools, and in accordance with this, we enrol babies from eight months onwards. Starting lessons at this age ensures that your little one has more neck stability, a more mature immune system, and increased awareness of their surroundings. Until such time as you start swimming lessons, bathtime is the perfect way to introduce water play into your little one’s routine – pour a trickle of water onto their tummy, make little splashes with bath toys, and show them how to kick their feet to make a splash.

It’s quick and easy. Simply click the Send us a Message button above and a member of our Swim School team will be in touch. Alternatively, give us a call on (02) 8113 1109. Once we’ve sent through your paperwork, we’ll hold your spot for 48 hrs. Given the popularity of our Swim School, if you do not return your completed forms within 48 hrs, your place will be allocated to someone else. For your convenience, fees are payable every ten weeks via automatic direct debit, ensuring that your child remains enrolled.
While we do our best to book lessons for members of the same family as close together as we can, this is not always possible given that classes for under 5s take place in the morning, while those for children over 5 take place in the afternoon.
Our direct debit system is quick and convenient and automatically re-enrols children at the end of each 10-week lesson cycle. This means that parents no longer need to remember to do so and are therefore no longer at risk of losing their preferred class day and time.
We run on 10-week terms regardless of school holidays (public or private) and may on occasion run a week into the school holidays.
