Our Learn to Swim Program is focused on providing children and adults the opportunity to develop a strong relationship with the water by ensuring that participants experience the water in a supportive, safe yet fun way. Our classes offer the lowest student to teacher ratios to ensure student engagement and quality practice time. Our program is designed to create experiences that stimulate fine and gross motor skills as well as cognitive skills. Most importantly, we aim to provide participants with a positive experience that we hope will ensure they will always enjoy their time in the water.
All our teachers and coaches are qualified ASCTA/AUSTSWIM qualified, hold current CPR and contiue their professional development while employed by Sydney Uni Swimming.

Our Adult Squad program includes swimmers of like mind ability. Triathletes, marathon runners, national waterpolo players and competitive ocean swimmers all come together with a singular aim, to get better and faster.

Our Sydney University Elite Athlete Program (High Performance/ Opens Squad) aims is to give Australian athletes over 18 years the chance to continue their sporting pursuits while gaining a university degree. We help these athletes develop a life style that provides the right balance between study, sport and life.
The Learn to Swim Program is focused on providing children and adults the opportunity to develop a strong relationship with the water by ensuring that participants experience the water in a supported and enjoyable way. Our program is designed to build on previous skill competencies in the water. This, in combination with small class sizes, ensure that swimmers are remain engaged and confident whilst still being challenged. Students are graded regularly throughout the term and feedback is provided regarding their progress.
A great alternative to swimming throughout the term for families with busy schedules, the Holiday Intensive Swimming Program (HISP) at Sydney Uni Swim School is a concentrated swimming and water safety program conducted over five consecutive days. They are a great way to fast track skills.
At Sydney Uni Swimming we offer a range of classes to cater for all abilities, from the novice to the squadies and everyone in-between. Come along with your friends and learn to swim, improve your technique or join the Open Water, Masters, and Triathlete swimmers in our Adult Squad.
The Squad Program caters for both recreation and competitive swimmers. Swimmers graduate from learn to swim into our transition Junior, and Development squads, then onto Challenge Squads, and Swimfit 13. Our Performance (competitive) Squads cater for 9-18 year old swimmers committed to swimming multiple sessions per week and regularly competing for Sydney Uni Swimming at area, metropolitan, state and national competitions.
We encourage all swimmers to become members of the SUSC, compulsory membership is required for all Performance squad swimmers and is recommended by our junior squad coaches. Race practice meets are run monthly, where we give feedback to each swimmer to help them better prepare for school carnivals, Area, State and National Championships and the Speedo Sprint Series. Our Open and Varisty swimmers often attend these meets and provide excellent mentoring and inspiration for our developing swimmers. These Club meets are a low key, fun way to introduce swimmers to racing and provide opportunity for new friendships to be made.
Sydney Uni Sport and Fitness will be running FREE Water Safety classes for University of Sydney students in Semester 1, 2019. These sessions will allow students who have no or limited experience with the water to learn basic water skills, stroke and water survival skills in a safe and friendly environment.
