About Us

Our Story

Carlile Swimming provides swimming programs for all ages, from babies to Olympians. We have been pioneering new teaching and training methods for more than half a century and are recognised worldwide as a leader in all aspects of aquatic education. Carlile Swimming employs over 500 staff across 8 swim centres. Every week we help 20,000+ kids become safer and more confident in and around the water.

Swimming is embedded in the Australian culture and is an important part of our way of life. At Carlile Swimming we believe that every Australian child should undertake some form of structured swimming education. The ability to swim well is not only potentially life-saving but is also a core life skill that will provide lasting benefits and enjoyment.

Carlile Swimming has a long and rich history of pioneering and expertise. Learn more about how our founders helped shaped modern swimming in Australia.
