Swimming Pool


Great swim schools begin with great teachers. Our staff are passionate about what they do and know what it takes to give the gift of swimming to everyone. Our staff are Austswim qualified, hold current CPR and WWC licenses. All staff have completed COVID-19-Infection Control training and we are currently working towards 100% Child Safety Certification.

We pride ourselves on our low staff turnover and we endeavour to provide you and your child with consistency of service.

Many of our staff have been competitive swimmers themselves and are passionate about sharing their knowledge.


Our senior teaching staff have been teaching at Swimsafe Swim Schools for many years, some for over a decade!
