Let our friendly qualified instructors help your children learn to swim in nurturing and fun environment.
At Sydney Uni Swimming, we believe in a holistic approach to teaching children to swim, allowing them to develop a love of water at their own pace. Classes are small to ensure focused learning and maximum practice time. Our program runs with the NSW Public School Calendar with Holiday Intensive Programs offered in the term breaks.
We have a great indoor pool facility with change rooms, access ramps, on-deck showers and a terrific café. We offer free assessments, (not a requirement for non swimmers under 4 years) a free Sydney Uni swimming cap on enrolment and two make-up lessons per term.
Our booking process is easy and available online after initial enrolment. Monitor your children’s progress and re-enrol with our online portal. A simple 10 lesson top up is all that is required before the end of each term.
For information about private lessons and our additional needs program please speak to our Swim School reception staff or call 9351 8735.
