From 1st December 2018, BlueFit Swimming will operate the swim school at BayFit Altona.

BlueFit Swimming is a structured program developed over 10 years and in use at more than 20 aquatic facilities.

Benefits in the change at Altona include affordable lessons, small class sizes, the addition of make-up classes, free access to the facility outside of the class time and a very clear progression from babies to squad.




Affordable Lessons


Small classes sizes


Make up lessons available


Free access to the aquatic centre outside of lessons


Generous multi child and multi lesson discount


Clear progression from babies through to swim club and squad


BlueFit have only recently taken over the management of the BayFit Leisure Centre, and are now extending this to include the operation of the swim school. This combined management allows BlueFit to provide great benefit to our students with initiatives such as free access to the centre 7 days a week. We are working with the Carlile team to ensure a seamless transition and this includes the maintenance of all existing staff.

BlueFit Swimming is located in 16 swim schools across in Australia.

The class prices will remain the same with the next monthly debit as normal on the 1st December. Class fees will move to a family-friendly fortnightly direct debit cycle starting Friday 4th January 2019.

You will remain in exactly the same classes however the level names will change. Click here to view the level conversion between BlueFit Swimming and Carlile. 

The parent portal allows you to view your child’s progress, book make-up classes, pay outstanding fees and view important swim school resources. You will have access to the parent portal from January 2019.

We anticipate that all teachers will remain through the changeover, which is fantastic.

We anticipate contacting you every week from next week through to transition. If you have an urgent question, please feel free to use the contact fields above.

From January 2019 students will be able to mark themselves absent up to 14 days before and 2 hours prior to their lesson via the parent portal.  Students have 1 make up lesson per calendar month per booking. Make up lessons are not transferable or refundable.

Like many swim schools, BlueFit Swimming is not term-based. Our program continues throughout the year, swimming through the School Holidays. Classes do not run on Public Holidays and we close over the Christmas and New Year break. These dates will be advertised in advance and you never pay for classes that are not scheduled. Please click here to visit the current swim school calendar. If your lesson falls on any of these dates you will not be charged.

BlueFit offers the opportunity for your children to come and practice their swimming skills outside of their scheduled lesson time. Upon presentation of the BlueFit Swimming entry card, children can enter the facility with a full paying adult.

Children under 6 years of age: A parent or guardian is free with the child, the parent MUST be in the water with the child.

Children from 6 years of age: A parent or guardian pay entry and MUST be in the centre with the child (they can be a spectator).

We assess all children in the program every 4-6 weeks in their class. We continually monitor all children’s progress in conjunction with their swim teacher. If you wish to discuss your child’s progress, please speak to the Pool Deck Coordinators who are always on duty. It is the Pool Deck Coordinators role to provide customer service and feedback on program participants. As you can appreciate, our swim instructors need to focus on their class at all times!
