​Aquatics & Swimming 

We're Back!

We are thrilled to announce that YMCA Aquatic facilities are once again open for business!

As per advice from the Northern Territory Government, in association with the Chief Medical Officer and the Department of Health, and in conjunction with our contract partners, to reduce the spread of COVID-19, increased sanitisation and social distancing measures remain in place across all of our facilities. See here for further details.


There are a range of swimming levels available for children 6 months and older, there is a range of class times and levels available across all the sites. Head into a centre near you to secure your spot for 2019.

After casual access to pool to swim some laps? Looking for swimming lessons  or or keen to just take the kids for a swim? There is something for everyone. Become a member, take some swimming and water safety lessons or attend one of our events.

Dive in to our swimming activities and programs! We accept the Northern Territory Government Learn to Swim Vouchers and Sports Vouchers. ​ ​

Learning to swim is great, but there is much more to learn in order to stay safe in and around water. We have classes for all ages from infants to adults. YMCA Swimming Swimming lessons.pngLessons are designed to teach vital skills and knowledge for lifelong aquatic enjoyment!  From enjoying a simple splash around in a pool to experiencing an off the beaten track waterfall or kayaking down an incredible river, give your child the skills they need for life.

It is important to us that your child's learning with us is sustainable. Our kids do not move to the next level until they meet critical program competencies. They will be so proud of themselves when they are awarded their certificate for completing all of the required skills, and they should be because we are! Check out the YMCA Swimming Lessons Level Guide.
