Brighton offers two highly subsidised swimming programs:

Immanuel College:

The Brighton Surf Club Junior swimming program is located at Immanuel College’s 25m swimming pool. The program is suitable for junior club members who have completed a learn to swim school program or can complete the club swim without stopping and are looking to improve their skills and fitness. The sessions are run on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights starting at 7pm and finishing at 8pm. The focus of the program is on freestyle technique and fitness with the aim to improve each junior member’s swimming ability. The program also acts at a progression into competitive swim club programs, such as Unley Swimming Club. Parents/carers and adult members are welcome also.

Board and Iron training:

Board and Iron training are usually held in front of the club and coached by one of our members.  These are free training sessions open to under 8’s-13’s, but your child must have completed their swimming proficiency.

Nippers are able to use the club boards at these sessions or can use their own board (highly recommended to those who are competitive).  Under 8’s-10’s MUST use a foam board and 11’s-13’s MUST use a fibreglass board.  Please see the water-cover or coach on the day to select boards. 

During the off season in winter the board training is held on Sundays 3pm-4pm, (Wetsuit recommended).  During the Nipper season board training is held on Tuesdays 6pm-7pm focusing on skills and endurance, Iron training on Fridays 6pm-7pm focusing on swimming, boards and change overs.
