Sydney Uni Swim Program is excited to announce that as of Monday July 20, we will be re-opening doors to families and resuming our Learn to Swim programs. 
Our Squad return date is 7th July (school holiday timetable here)

Eased restrictions ensure we can safely operate our programs at the high quality level our families are used to.

These eased restrictions include:

  • The number of people in the pool and pool hall is in line with one person per four square metres
  • Our swimming teachers can be in the water with the children, providing supervision for safety and any necessary hands on correction. 

We have been busily working during our closure period to make sure our centre is ready for your return and some additional measures have been put in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of staff and families. 

These measures include:

  • Hand sanitising stations provided upon entry
  • Changed entry and exits points
  • Markers on the floor and seats to help assist with 1.5m social distancing guidelines
  • Card-only payments

We have committed to giving families as much notice prior to reopening, and many of you have already sent through your expressions of interest to retain your enrolments.

Please let us know via so we can contact you to book your swimmer in via phone later this month. At this time we will communicate further to you about your specific lesson time, what to bring with you and some additional measures to be aware of for yourself and your family.

In the meantime, please familiarise yourself with the terms and condtions of returning to our swim programs and the SUSF Covid Action Plan

In the coming weeks, our team will be working hard to ensure you come back to a fun, safe, and stress-free environment.

Sydney Uni Swimming would like to thank all of our families for their patience and understanding during this time.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Our program offers classes with the lowest student to teacher ratios to ensure maximum student engagement and quality practice time. Safety and technical skills are the focus of our classes. Classes are conducted in our 50m Olympic pool and warm showers are available on deck.

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.      


Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness runs FREE Water Safety classes for University of Sydney students in Semesters 1 & 2, 2020
