Learn to Swim

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and upgrades requiring construction in the 25m pool area, the Learn to Swim Program / Dive Program / School Swimming Program will not be available at DKHAC until Term 4, 2020. (subject to meeting the COVID-19 guidelines / restrictions in place at that time)

When do Learn to Swim lessons re-start?

We are planning on re-starting the Learn to Swim program on Monday 12th October 2020, the start of Term 4.

What changes are going to be made to the structure of the Learn to Swim program?

COVID-19 has meant we have had to look at the way we deliver our classes in terms of both the area they are taught in AND the classes design itself.

Subject to the guidelines in place at the time, we expect:

  • a new setup of lanes / class spaces.
  • our student-per-class numbers to be lower.
  • a larger gap between classes to allow for all equipment to be cleaned after every change of class.
  • spectator numbers to be restricted.

I was enrolled when the COVID-19 pandemic shut-down the program, will I get the same day / time?

As we are changing the program to meet COVID-19 guidelines and regulations, there will be significant changes to the levels and days that each class operates.

We will be in contact with all of our existing Learn to Swim patrons closer to our re-start date to communicate the details of these changes.

I'm a new customer, when can I join the Learn to Swim program?

If you are interested in joining our program as a new customer, please email us at dkhac@hobartcity.com.au with your contact details and we will let you know as soon as we are ready to take on new students.


While we have been closed during the COVID-19 restrictions, the leisure pool upgrade to facilitate the installation of the new water activity centre (see below) has been brought forward.


 As a result, the 25m will be closed (currently empty) until the end of September 2020. The dive pool will be utilised for lap swimmers / aqua-aerobics classes only, due to the severe lack of water space available because of the current per lane / per pool restrictions in place.

Our team are as keen to get back in the water as you are (even on these cold winter mornings) … so as soon as we are ready to go, we will be in contact directly.

We encourage you to continue to check the DKHAC website as a primary source of Centre related information to remain up to date as we continue to work towards reopen.
