GOswim Program

Learn to swim at Canberra Olympic Pool


Canberra Olympic Pool is proud to deliver the innovative GOswim program to students, families and the community in Canberra and surrounding ACT areas.

Powered by Swimming Australia, GOswim focuses on contemporary, experiential, activity based learning as a fun and engaging way for kids and adults to learn to swim and be safe around water. GOswim swimming lessons empower students to think, discuss and decide whilst having fun in and around water.

At Canberra Olympic Pool, GOswim swimming lessons are run in small graded classes with a fully trained swimming teacher year round.

The GOswim Program at Canberra Olympic Pool runs for 48-weeks throughout the year, with a 4 week break for Christmas Holidays. Allowing you to secure your spot all year long and receive the GOswim membership benefits including unlimited pool access outside of lessons, 4 weeks of family swim access over the summer break and enrolment in our GOswim Holiday Program.

Lessons cater for:
