School programs

Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre is proud to offer a variety of programs, specially designed for local schools. Programs can be custom designed to cater each school’s needs. Coach shuttles can be included in selected packages at a great rate, taking the headache out of the organisation.

Swim lessons

The GESAC Swim School believes that learning swimming and water safety is a vital life skill. Swimming is an activity that should be enjoyed. We aim to pass on our love of swimming to all members of the program.

The program aims to promote correct stroke technique, water familiarisation, water safety and overall personal development in an enjoyable and safe environment. Each of the levels includes a balance of swimming and survival skills to achieve the aims of the program, which is VELS compliant.

With both an indoor 25 metre pool and outdoor 50 metre pool, the Centre is able to offer various options when sourcing lane or pool hire. Both pools are fully heated and available for hire 12 months of the year.

The outdoor 50 metre pool is the perfect environment for your swim teams training sessions, water polo matches, or a fun alternative to field sports on a hot summer’s day. 

The indoor 25 metre pool, allows you to schedule your groups swimming, fitness and other water sport needs in advance, without having to worry about Melbourne’s ever changing weather conditions.

Swimming carnivals

Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre is the ideal venue for both school and district swimming carnivals. The large, attractive outdoor setting can hold in excess of 800 students, and allows your school to be completely separated from the rest of the Centre’s patrons.
