You’re never too young or old to learn to swim! Alice Springs Aquatic and Leisure Centre is proudly an AUSTSWIM Accredited Centre which adheres to the highest standards of teaching and development of swimming and water safety skills.
Alice Springs Aquatic & Leisure Centre is proud to be a Swim and Survive Partner, working with Royal Life Saving to make communities safer around water. As part of our Partnership, we offer Swim and Survive as our core water safety education program for children. Swim and Survive is a broad balanced swimming and water safety program of Royal Life Saving that is aligned to the National Swimming and Water Safety Framework. Swim and Survive focuses on swimming, personal survival skills, basic rescue and water safety knowledge to provide children with solid foundation skills to safely enjoy a lifetime of aquatic recreation. Swim and Survive provides a pathway for ongoing learning and development and is designed to keep children engaged, actively learning and most importantly, having fun along the way.
