Learn to Swim Enrolments




TELEPHONE:   (03) 9434 4516


Due to the popularity of our school we provide a waitlist service for customers who wish to pre-enrol prior to the booking periods. For further information on this service please contact our reception. Often we receive enrolments where children have had previous lessons and in some cases they may require an assessment prior to placement. If an assessment is required to determine their ability the aquatic department will contact you by phone to arrange a suitable time.



Swimming fees are charged by term and due for payment at the time of booking (Except waitlist) and prior to the commencement of the term. Yarra Swim School believes in providing families with options in regards to the way fees are paid and can offer the following options. If you are still unsure as to what suits you best please talk to our customer service officer that may be able to assist you.

  • Telephone using your Credit Card
  • In Person using Cash, Cheque or Credit Card



It is important to make lessons affordable to larger families and offer the following family discounts

  • 3rd Swimmer - 10% Discount

      Memberships and lessons are non transferable to other people and can not be converted to other products or services.
    4. Request for lesson changes
      Following re-enrolment process a week is set aside to process requests for change. While every effort is made to accommodate requests for change, it is dependent on the availability of vacancies and no guarantee can be given to accommodate requests

    7. Discounts
      A 10% discount is applied on the term fee of the third child for all swimming families.

    8. Cancellations
      This contract of membership can be voided if written notification is provided no later than seven working days prior to the commencement of the YSS term.
      Cancellation received after seven working days but prior to the commencement of the YSS swimming term will receive a refund less a $20 administration fee.
      All terms and conditions of membership are binding once the YSS term commences.

    9. Refunds (medical certificate only)
      Refunds are available for medical reasons. These require a medical certificate (this certificate must state the dates of unattended lessons).
      Refunds will not be issued to any person other than the enrolled student stated on the medical certificate. We do issue credits or transfers to another term.
      An administration fee of $20 will be deducted for all refunds. Credits or transfers to another term will not be charged a $20.00 administration fee.

    10. Missed Lessons
      Compensation for missed lessons or make up lessons is not applicable as a child's spot in a class is reserved solely for her/him during the term regardless of attendance. Students who are unable to attend lessons due to illness can organise up to two (2) make up classes for all other levels per term. Nursery classes are entitled to 2 make ups for both parent and child. Make up lessons can only be provided if spaces become available within the same term and they will expire and become a forfeit at the end of each term. We endeavour to cater to the needs of make ups, but as there can be no guarantee of spots becoming available for everyone, we strongly advise all students to attend all their allocated classes as losses will be borne solely by the absentee. (A medical Certificate is required before a credit can be given.)
      In addition, the following conditions apply:
      The YSS office must be notified of non-attendance-call on 9434 4516 before:
      • Morning classes: notification must be received by 8:30am
      • Afternoon classes: notification must be received by 1:30pm
      *If necessary, please leave messages on the answering machine

    12. Public Holidays/School Holidays
      Classes do not run on public holidays or term school holidays and do not form part of your account.

    13. Swimming Attire
      All students who are not fully toilet trained must wear correct aqua nappies whilst in the pool during and after lessons.

    14. Teachers & Time Changes
      The swim school reserves the right to cancel or change classes and instructors or move students if the need arises. Although we strive to maintain a consistency with instructors this is not always possible.

    15. Parental Supervision
      It is the condition of entry that all children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian whilst at the centre. Children will not be accepted into lessons if a parent or guardian is absent. Children must be collected by the parent or guardian over the age of sixteen (16) at the conclusion of every lesson.
