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 program is designed to create experiences that stimulate  fine and gross motor skills and 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.

Learn to Swim 

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 along skill progressions that enable to swimmer to build on previous skill competencies in the water. This ensures the children are engaged and confident whilst still being challenged. Students are graded regularly throughout the term and feedback is provided regarding thier progress.

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 10-18 year old swimmers committed to swimming multiple sessions per week and regularly competing for Sydney Uni Swimming at area, metropolitan, state and national competitions. 

Sydney Uni Swimming Club 

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.
