Noble Park Aquatic Centre offers swimming sessions that allow participants to swim in a male or female only environment.
These sessions provide a space to feel comfortable and bond with others while enjoying the benefits of swimming.
Lifeguards on duty identify with the environment of that session (i.e. female lifeguards are on duty during the women-only sessions).
Sessions run all year round at the following times:
- Men-only swimming: Monday 8:00pm - 9:45pm
- Women-only swimming: Tuesday 8:00pm - 9:45pm
- Women-only swimming: Wednesday 8:00pm - 9:45pm
These sessions are currently run in our heated indoor leisure and program pool. Our outdoor pool and other aquatic facilities are not available for use.
Parents and guardians can bring children of other genders under the age of six to these sessions.
A list of casual entry fees are available on our prices page.
Please note: our swimming pools close 15 minutes to the centres closure.
Contact us if you have any questions about these sessions.
It's never too late to learn how to swim.

Watch Around Water Policy Information
At YMCA Victoria we are a Watch Around Water endorsed aquatic safety organisation. The following information is the new watch around water policy launched in centre from 1 September 2019.
Watch Around Water is a set of industry guidelines outlining the minimum supervision requirements of young children at all affiliated aquatic venues.
Children under 5 years oldAll Children MUST be accompanied into the Centre by a person over the age of 18 and supervised within arms’ reach, at all times in the water.
All children MUST wear a pink wristband supplied by YMCA staff to help identify their age while swimming.
Children will not be admitted without a full fee paying parent/guardian who must also be in the water at all times. Groups will not be admitted entry where the number of parents/guardians supervising a group of children under 5 years exceeds the ratio of 1:2 (effective September 1 2019).
Children under 10 years oldAll Children under the age of 10 MUST be accompanied into the Centre by a person over the age of 18. All children MUST be actively supervised by an adult over the age of 18 at all times. The adult must have a clear and active view of the child with no physical or structural barriers between them (this includes tech and devices).
All children MUST wear a yellow wristband supplied by YMCA staff to help identify their age while swimming. Groups will not be admitted entry where the number of parents/guardians supervising a group of children under 10 years exceeds the ratio of 1:4.
Birthday PartiesAll children under the age of 10 MUST be accompanied into the Centre by a person over the age of 18 and handed over to the supervision of the birthday party leader (staff member).
All birthday party participants must wear a BLUE wristband AND an age based wristband (pink or yellow) to identify their participation in a party (effective September 1 2019). The adult guardian of the birthday party child MUST remain accessible and actively supervise the group at all times.
At the conclusion of the birthday party the child/children will remain in the supervision of the birthday party leader and supervising parent until physically handed over to their supervising parent/guardian.
