Klim Swim is an established Learn To Swim Operation, providing quality swimming tuition to participants of all ages and abilities. The Klim Family established Klim Swim in 1997 and created a Learn to Swim Program along with the help of a number of swimming coaches and industry experts.

The temperature

We aim to keep our water at around 32 degrees. This is a perfect temperature for infants and children having lessons as they do not get cold. We also have vents that keep the pool deck nice and toasty also, so Klim Swim is a perfect place to hide during winter whilst keeping active!

The water

Klim Swim Richmond is a chlorine pool, however as it is a private pool with less children coming through our door than public pool, we are able to have lower chlorine levels which means happier skin!

Public Swimming

We are open for public swimming on Monday – Friday from 6 – 8:00am. There is a life Guard on duty during this time only and clean change rooms. Please note that the pool is not be open for public swimming during the school holidays.

Costs for public swimming is $5 for adults and $4 for Richmond Football club members.
