Swim squads – Learn to swim

The ABASC Swim Program includes weekly race meets plus the provision of swim lessons by Austswim qualified coaches on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the season (October to April).

Our main purpose is to teach kids and adults to swim and be water safe.

Wednesday Adult Squads

Wednesday swim squads are for Adults only as the kids should be in school, and we have three different groups including those who cannot swim, to those who can swim a bit but need improvement, to those who are competent swimmers who want to swim smarter and stronger.

The Wednesday Adult Squads start at 10am at Bilgola Ocean Pool and run though to 11am followed by a get together at Zubi At Billys, and this is a great way to meet new people who are interested in staying young and active.

Saturday squads

Our Saturday squads are for kids and we cater for three groups 1Learn To Swim candidates, 2-competent to 15m or 25m swimmers and 3-competent swimmers who want to do better at their upcoming school swimming carnivals.

These squads start at 8am and run to 8.45am in time for the kids to enter their Saturday Swim Meet races.


We require, for insurance purposes,  that all participants must be registered club members at a cost of $40 per year, which is the same as one swim lesson in some places.

You only need to bring a willingness to learn plus goggles, and if you have flippers/fin and a kickboard bring those too or we can provide some from our bucket.
