PROGRAMS OVERVIEW

One of the Centre's primary objectives is 'to provide a broad range of quality sport, fitness, educational and recreational programs which cater to a cross-section of the community'. Our programs are diverse and comprehensive, ensuring maximum accessibility. Women and men of all ages, from toddlers through to senior adults, are well represented as active participants in programs at Beatty Park Leisure Centre. As a community facility, the Centre is consciously promoted as having a friendly and welcoming environment for people of all shapes and sizes. A range of beginner programs and classes are scheduled, and the instructors and coaches are constantly reminded of the need to encourage beginners and those returning to regular exercise.

The aquatic programs include recreational lap swimming, leisure play, scuba diving, competitive swimming for a range of sports including swimming, triathlons, surf lifesaving and water polo. The Beatty Park Swim School is arguably the strongest in the State, enrolling on average 2000 participants per term. Integrated lessons for children and adults with disabilities are available in our Angelfish program, as are one-to-one swimming lessons. The Education Department and the Royal Life Saving Society run successful In-term and Vacation Swimming programs at the Centre.

The coaching program has consistently produced world champions. Olympians Jono Van Hazel, Travis Nederpett and Anthony Matkovich are among the group who have achieved recent success at the elite level from coaching squads at Beatty Park. Several Aussi Swimming Clubs call Beatty Park home, as do the Triton and Phantom Water Polo clubs.

The health and fitness programs include group fitness, aqua fitness, RPM™ and circuit gym classes. The gymnasium is equipped with electronic cardio equipment, pin loaded weights and free weights. 'ENERGYWISE' is a popular fitness program aimed at the over 50s population. Personal training and massage are also among the services on offer. Antenatal aqua fitness classes are also available. We pride ourselves on the diversity of specialist skills and professionalism of the staff in the health and fitness area.

All facilities are available for hire. Our regular users include primary and high schools from throughout - Western Australia, AustSwim, the Education Department Swimming and Water Safety Section, Royal Life Saving Society, West Australian Disabled Sports Association, the Disability Services Commission, TAFE and other tertiary institutions. The Asthma Foundation, Swimming WA and canoe polo groups, as well as a diverse range of sporting clubs utilise the facility.

Beatty Park Leisure Centre is a popular venue for people participating in rehabilitation programs. We have actively developed partnerships with medical practitioners in the area reinforcing the benefits of health and fitness to overall well being.
