AquaGuard is an alternative program to a competitive swimming environment and provides students with an opportunity to develop a future career in the aquatic and leisure industry.

The program focuses on inclusive, team focused physical activities and explores the concepts of community service and community education, particularly through the roles of pool lifeguards and swimming lessons teachers.

The program offers young people training and development in:

  • healthy lifestyle choices
  • Bronze Star/Medallion qualifications
  • community service and leadership, and
  • aquatic career opportunities.

Students can enrol in the 6 month or 3 month program, of which will include one weekly session or two weekly sessions, respectively.

Currently available at Coburg Leisure Centre and Brunswick Baths.


Squad swimming program caters for students comfortably performing 1 km swims. The squad’s sessions are ideal for fitness, stroke development and to improve competition performance.

Facilitated by a qualified and experienced coach that delivers motivational and challenging training sessions, this program is great to offer those budding swimming stars. 

We also offer beginner and intermediate pre-Squad programs for students still developing towards the Squad program.
