The Academy

Our Academy is the ‘learning to swim’ starting block of our club and opened in January 2019. Swimming instruction is offered for children between the ages of 4 and 6 who are confident in the water and show an interest in learning to swim before progressing to our pre-development squads.

It’s an exciting and fun way for them to take their first steps in their swimming journey whether it be to learn the important life skill or move through to competitive swimming. We have created a structured program to build confidence in the water and teach them good habits and important technique for a lifelong love for swimming.
