At a time when keeping connected with loved ones is as easy as lifting your mobile phone from your pocket, it is comforting to know that those close to us really are within reach at any given moment. However, when it comes to supervising your child at our (or any) swimming pools, the concept of being within arms reach has an even greater significance.
Here, it is a matter of life and death.
Over the last few months, our lifeguards have saved the lives of several children whose parents or guardians were otherwise preoccupied on their phones – one of the recoveries occurred within arms reach of the parent, who was too busy on their phone.
Our lifeguards are an important safety feature but they DO NOT replace the close supervision of accompanying adults. A puddle of water is enough to cause an infant to drown, and as many as 20% of near-drowning survivors suffer permanent neurological disability.
We understand how easy it is to have new notifications or having the latest news at your fingertips but we urge you to remember the reason why you are where you are. It is for the sake of the loved one(s) who, at this moment are relying on you.
Keep safe and happy swimming for all of our customers!
Our Adolescent Program is for those older swimmers who are not confident in an aquatic environment through to those swimmers who are wanting to perfect their strokes.
Our program offers the opportunity for adolescents to learn to swim in an environment with their peers and is primarily swimmers aged between 13 – 18 years.
We differentiate the levels between beginner, intermediate and advanced, so everyone has the opportunity to continue to learn and develop no matter their capability!

As the summer season comes to a close, we begin the shutdown period of Gracemere and Mount Morgan Pools
They will be temporarily closed for the winter break so make sure you jump in for your last dip before May 1st and we look forward to seeing you again on September 1st when we reopen.
If you’re still wanting to keep your swimming routine up, South Rockhampton pool will be remaining open.
Did you know the youngest age a child can start swimming lessons is 4 months old?
Our Infants Program begins at 4 months through to 3 years, with a focus on water confidence and safety skills. Through fun and play, we nurture a lifetime of love for the water.
With a parent in the water and the knowledge of our instructors, our Aquatot level will encourage and educate both the child & parent on the basics of water safety. We aim to teach the child a love & respect for the water activities and games!

Goodbye upfront term payments, hello affordable fortnightly direct debit payments! We are very excited about the changes to our swimming lessons which means you can now access the swimming program all year round!
We will no longer run a term based program but will instead have lessons 50 weeks of the year with a break for Christmas/NY, Easter and Public Holidays. This means you can now enrol and cancel as you please.
Included in this change will be the implementation of the parent portal which will allow you to book a make up lesson for a class you can’t attend. Please click here for more information about our make up policy.
The parent portal is an online portal which allows you to manage your class payments
More information about the parent portal will be sent at the end of January. To find out more about our swimming program please visit www.bluefitswimming.com.au
