Learn To Swim

Klim Swim is a technical and skill focused swimming school.

We work on developing your child’s stroke technique and ability whilst focussing heavily on important water safety skills. Along with our small class sizes, we believe this is our point of difference from other swim schools.

 

For those wanting to join lessons with Klim Swim an assessment is recommended prior to enrolment. This can be booked in for a weeknight or weekend and ensures your child is in the correct level when they commence their lessons.
