Holiday Intensive Swimming Program

The Holiday Intensive Swimming Program (HISP) is a concentrated swimming and water safety program conducted over five consecutive days. The intensive nature of the swimming program allows for a greater opportunity for consolidation of swimming and water safety skills and progression.

Providing swimming lessons during the school holiday period provides a great alternative to swimming lessons throughout the term for families with busy schedules.

For those already enrolled into the Monash Sport Learn to Swim and Water Safety Program, this program will assist you in consolidating skills you need to complete in order to achieve that next level, or to kick start your progress into a new level.
