Our Swim Program

FOUNDATIONS

Our Foundations stream teaches water confidence and the ability to function happily in a class environment. Spend quality bonding time with your child, while learning vital foundational skills to start your little swimmer on their learning journey!

INDEPENDENCE

Ensure that your child has the skills to swim safely and independently across all aquatic environments. The Independence stream instills the correct skills and technique so that our students can learn to navigate the water with ease and enjoyment.

TECHNIQUE

In our Technique stream, swimmers will learn Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly techniques. Our program is planned so that all techniques are practiced and reinforced correctly and introduced at the right time for our swimmers development.

DEVELOPMENT

Our swimmers are recognizing their potential in the water and that swimming training in the right environment, can be really fun! The Development stream inspires our swimmers to become technically correct across all of their strokes, as well as introducing race skills.

 

The Southern Difference

At Southern Swim School we believe that kids are capable of doing amazing things in the water at a young age – start them early, trust the process, stay consistent and constantly provide them with challenges so that they stay motivated to achieve.

Our Swim Program has been continually developed and tested, learning from the best mentors and swim schools in Australia. This results in a strong and consistent teaching philosophy that flows through every aspect of our swim school and all of our instructors. Everything we do is designed to live up to our motto – Aspire Strive Succeed.

 

WE’RE BACK!!! An email has been sent to our Southern Swim family today with our reopening plan. We are also trying to get through hundreds of new website enquiries. We will get to you all, we promise. The team at Southern is so pumped to get back in the water with our kids. Let’s do this! ...

Bonnie has been working hard getting classes up and running again but after today's announcement, we are no closer to knowing when our reopening date will be, but we will be sure to provide you all with an update as soon as we know more later next week.

Our whole team are really missing our Southern Swim kids, and we hope to see you all back at the pool really soon. Our teachers will be full of energy on reopening, we really can't wait to see everyone! #southernswimschool #goawaycovid #swimschool

Our very amazing, humble coach Lisa is off supporting her daughter (and our former swim teacher) Jess in the Olympic Swimming trials this week. For those of you who don't know, Lisa was an ex-national champion, and only missed the 1988 Seoul Olympic selection (by .03 of a second)! Lisa went into the trials as the National champion but finished third after a disrupted preparation. Lisa went on to have 3 kids, 2 of whom are currently working with us- Lara and Ryan. When taking her kids to early swimming lessons, Lisa stumbled across our Head of Swimming, Leanne at a local swim school in the early 2000's. Leanne taught Jess to swim, and coached her until she was 9 years old in a 20m Indoor pool, before sending her off to Robyn at Sutherland Pool. Jess is now training under Australia's leading Swim coach, Michael Bohl at Griffith University, and is set to compete at the Olympic trials over the next week in the 200IM, 400IM, 400FS, and 200BF. Lisa has now been teaching and coaching for close to 20 years and loves passing back her knowledge and love of swimming to our Southern Swim kiddies. Swim fast Jess, we will all be cheering you on! ...

Little Millie never ceases to entertain us each week at swimming lessons with Chloe! We think you can tell by this cheeky smile... ...

2 year old Saydee has just moved up from a starfish class and she does not have a worry in the world about not having her grandma swimming with her anymore! Shes even smiling while she’s swimming! Go Saydee ❤️ #swimminglessons #learntoswim #southernswimschool #babyswimming #shirekids ...

Jasper and Henry showing off their swimming skills at Southern School Swim. Jasper was so excited about his swim at the end he high 5’d Leanne straight in the forehead instead of her hand. Swim teaching can be a dangerous job sometimes 🤣🤣 ...

Do you have a nervous swimmer? Swimming lessons can sometimes be quite daunting for our tiny humans. Most children will take a couple of weeks to settle into their new classes. There's a lot going on for an anxious child, a new teacher, a new swim centre and usually a lot of noise happening around them. For all children, we recommend participating in two lessons per week but especially for those who are not feeling comfortable, that's why we offer a 30% discount on all of our swimmer's second lessons.
Crying during a lesson is normal but it's super important to stick at it and be consistent because we promise your little one will improve after a few consistent lessons....
