Frequently asked questions

FAQs Noarlunga Leisure Centre transition

General

Why has the Council taken over the Centres?

On 21 December 2021, the City of Onkaparinga took over responsibility for the management of the Noarlunga Leisure Centre, which includes both the Noarlunga Aquatic Centre and St Vincent Recreation Centre.

In a statement from Mayor Erin Thompson she said the transition will result in a range of positive outcomes for centre users and ratepayers. Bringing management in-house allows us to drive greater efficiency and better value for our ratepayers; deliver significant upgrades to the centre; and best meet our community’s sport and recreation needs.

This change follows the successful transition of three other indoor recreation centres at The Hub, Seaford and Aldinga to an in-house, council-managed model in 2018.

The Centre opened Monday 28 December.

Swim School

Welcome to the Noarlunga Aquatic and Recreation Centre Swim School.

The swim school's focus is to teach the four competitive strokes to FINA standards, which means our end goal is to teach your children correct swimming technique. We will also incorporate a PASS element within our program. PASS programming involves teaching "swim and survive" skills.

What should your child bring to class? Enthusiasm to learn swimming, preparedness to be challenged to reach higher levels and be prepared to take a risk in learning something new in a safe and supportive environment. Swimmers in the hour-long groups should always bring water in a plastic drink bottle.

We look forward to developing your child's aquatic education. We will also be providing further opportunities in the future for children to advance from the hour groups into more advanced squads. We will keep you informed of new developments as they are introduced.

If your child is unable to make it please notify us prior to class (or as soon as possible after the class), via email or phone.   

Please note: In accordance with our Policy if your child misses two weeks in a row, without notifying us, they will lose their position in the class without further notice.  

Contact us via email aquatic.centre@onkaparinga.sa.gov.au or phone on 8488 2099 to enrol your child today!

Gym membership

We are in the process of finalising our membership program to enable online subscriptions. In the mean time, weekly passes can be purchased from Reception.
