Each program is structured into skill strands that ensure a balanced, comprehensive instructional approach to a child's aquatic education.

Reservoir Leisure Centre offers extended opening hours on selected weekends for trans and gender diverse people to enjoy exercise in a safe, supportive environment.

We are for the return of our TGD Community Nights, with the first event for 2021 on Saturday 8th of May. 

 RLC is proud to have been the first leisure centre in Victoria to hold a Trans and Gender Diverse (TGD) Swim Night in early 2018.

A recommendation of Darebin’s Sexuality, Sex and Gender Diversity Advisory Committee, these events have been developed to provide a welcoming and safe environment for trans and gender diverse members of our community to enjoy exercise.

Working with Transgender Victoria and the Victorian Pride Centre to develop a successful framework for hosting these events, we’ve since shared our experience with leisure centres in neighbouring municipalities. There are now several TGD and LGBTIQ inclusive events happening regularly at leisure centres across Melbourne.

Along with access to the pools, our TGD events have expanded to include access to the gym facilities and group fitness classes.

These events are open to trans and gender diverse people of all ages — if that’s you, come along, get some exercise or just hang out and socialise and in a safe and supportive environment. Friends, partners and families are welcome.

Entry is $3.00 at the door – no bookings required.

Upcoming dates
Saturday 8th May, 2021.
