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.

What is the parent portal?

The parent portal is an online portal which allows you to manage your class payments

  • Mark yourself absent and book make ups
  • Access swim school resources
  • Update Payment Details
  • Check class progress
  • Pay Outstanding Fees
  • Book additional Lessons

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

We are very excited to introduce the new BlueFit Swimming program to the Moss Vale community. Students are all booked in to their normal class time and they will attend their first BlueFit lesson greeted by their regular instructor. The BlueFit Swimming program consists of structured levels that progressively build swimming skills and water confidence. It is important to acknowledge that current students may have not yet learned some of the skills that are in their BlueFit Swimming lessons. During the transition we greatly appreciate your understanding that it may take time to teach these new skills.
