The Regional Aquatic Centre is now offering adult learn to swim lessons as part of the YMCA's nationally-recognised AquaSafe program.

Into its second block, the learn to swim program delivers aquatic education to more than 300 people per week.

"I am very proud of our adults who have improved so much since joining the program," said Learn to Swim coordinator Julie Barrett.

"It proves that you're never too old to start learning to swim."

The program runs for 48 weeks of the year.

"What we are able to offer the community is quality but also affordable lessons," Ms Barrett said.

"We even have a few families on fee assistance and this is important in creating a more connected community.".

Amy McCarthur has been taking lessons for two months. She said when she first started she didn't know how to swim.

"But now with the YMCA program I can do laps up and down the pool. I am so proud of myself," she said.

Adult lessons are available most evenings of the week and for more information phone 8080 3510.
