Our swim school prides itself on providing learning opportunities and aquatic pathways for swimmers ages 4 and up. Based on the Royal Life Saving Australia’s “Swim and Survive” curriculum and drawing on the experience and expertise of the Geelong Swimming Club our teaching methods go above and beyond the standard lesson plans. Sessions are run by the regions finest teachers many of whom are former competitive swimmers themselves and share with our students their love of swimming.

Based at Christian College Geelong Sports & Aquatic Centre, our Geelong facility provides an ideal environment specifically tailored to learn to swim lessons for school aged children. The venue comprises two pools heated at 31 degrees with an air temperature set at a cosy 27 degrees.

We are excited to announce that we have expanded our reach to serve the Northern Suburbs community at the Handbury Centre, Corio.
