Yarra Leisure is proud to participate in this year's 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign in Victoria.

During this 16 Days of Activism and beyond, we can all work together and join the call to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls and all forms of gender-based violence.

How are we participating?

A special edition of Women Making Waves

In solidarity with the 16 Days of Activism we're offering a special free edition of Women Making Waves at Collingwood Leisure Centre on Saturday 25 November from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Let's come together to advocate for a culture of safety, equality, and respect.

What's on?

There will be free group exercise classes, swimming lessons and casual access to the gym, pools, spa and sauna.

Time Class Duration
6.45pm Childrens swimming lesson 30 minutes
6.45pm Aqua group exercise class 45 minutes
7pm Virtual Body Balance group exercise class 45 minutes
7.15pm Adult swimming lesson 30 minutes

Please ask reception for a ticket to the class you wish to participate in when you arrive. 

Who can attend?

Women of all ages, cultures and abilities are welcome as well as boys under 5 years. We only roster female staff during Women Making Waves, we also close the blinds around the pool area and place a screen in front of the door, to ensure it is a private and safe space for all women.

How do I book?

Book your spot on our online portal. You'll need to create a free account if you don't already have one. Set the class filter to 'Women Making Waves - Special Edition' to book your spot. 

You can also turn up on the night and register in person.
