Additional needs lessons and private tuition are available on request.
Our teachers and coaches are qualified ASCTA/AUSTSWIM qualified, hold current CPR, and continue their professional development while employed by Sydney Uni Swimming. They are specifically chosen for their aptitude in teaching and their skills in helping swimmers build their confidence in the water.
Our program is designed to build on previous skill competencies in the water and incorporates Royal Lifesaving Australia Swim and Survive watersafety skills. Small class sizes allow for maximum practice time and engagement. Students are graded regularly throughout the term and feedback and enrolment is available through our Homeportal.

Sydney Uni Swimming offers a comprehensive range of classes for all abilities, from the inexperienced to the serious squad swimmers and everyone in - between. Our program begins with basic Water Safety instruction for complete beginners. Our Confident Beginners class progresses through to basic freestyle and backstroke. In Stroke Development classes our swimmers come together with a single aim to refine strokes and become more efficient in the water. Specifically designed technique, aerobic and pace sets are also included.
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 or try our programs
Our Squad Program caters for both recreation and competitive swimmers. Swimmers graduate from learn to swim into our transition into our Development Challenge Squads, and Swimfit 13+.
Our Performance Squads cater for 9-18 year old swimmers committed to swimming multiple sessions per week and regularly compete for Sydney Uni Swimming at Area, Metropolitan, State and National competitions.
This squad offers University Aged Athletes (18+) the opportunity to train with their peers in a competitive and non-competitive environment relevant to their goals and aspirations. We have National Scholarship athletes preparing for international competitions, through to former athletes continuing to train for fitness and wellbeing. One thing in common, they all love the sport and see no reason why you cannot swim well into your 20's and remain competitive.
We encourage our swimmers from Level 5 as well as their swimming parents to to become members of the SUSC. Race meets are run monthly. Our philosophy is to help to each swimmer strive for their personal best, and better prepare them for school carnivals, Area, State and National Championships and the Speedo Sprint Series.
Our Open and Varsity swimmers often attend these meets and provide excellent mentoring and inspiration for our developing swimmers.
Club meets are a low key, fun way to introduce swimmers to racing and provide opportunity for new friendships to be made.
