STARplex Swim School School Aged Program is suitable for children aged 5 years and over. The program includes four levels allowing children to develop their skills at their own pace, with lots of positive encouragement and guidance from our qualified instructors.
At STARplex Swim Centre we believe children need to be confident and competent in their swimming before they are able to move into the next level. This approach has proven successful with many longer term students graduating through all levels of the Swim School to compete as members of the STARplex Squad program or some even to national swim team status. Children are able to build their water safety skills, technique and confidence each week and receive a certificate when they have completed all requirements in each level. Our Austswim and Active Training qualified instructors all have an excellent knowledge and experience and regularly attend training sessions to keep up to date with the latest techniques and information. For further information telephone the STARplex Swim Centre on 8522 0685.

Drowning is the greatest cause of accidental death in children under five in Australia. Each week, on average, one child drowns. Let’s put an end to childhood drowning for good.
The new Royal Life Saving National Drowning Report 2016 found that 280 people drowned in Australian waters in 2015/16 – a 5% increase on the 267 drowning deaths recorded last year, with males drowning at a far higher rate than females. See more here…
In 1988 to combat drowning, Laurie Lawrence created the Kids Alive – Do the Five water safety program. The Kids Alive community service program educates the public on five important steps to reduce the risk of preschool drowning – learn more here.
