Since the pandemic began there has not been a single confirmed case of the virus being transmitted at a Carlile Swimming Facility and research in the United Kingdom has found the virus can’t survive in properly treated water, find out more here. Carlile Swimming maintains the highest standards of hygiene, using the latest air and water filtration technologies and chlorine treatments, together with an added UV filtration system, providing a double layer of protection in the water

The teachers at Carlile Lane Cove have been nothing but AMAZING. My little girl had a hard time adjusting from swimming with me to going in by herself. Teacher Tash was unremarkable at helping my little girl to calm down, feel safe and swim on her own. I felt at ease knowing there was teaches able to help between the classes for one on one care. I could not fault any of the service we have received at Carlile. It is such a great place to make parents and kids feel welcome with a great swimming program.
We switched from another franchise a few months ago and really enjoy this location. The facilities are much bigger with several change rooms. It does get very crowded on the weekends so kids might not get as much attention from the instructors as they would on a weekday but we do appreciate the “monitor” staff who walk throughout the centre and help out where they can to discuss new approaches or your kids progress. Special call-out to Hamish and Lulu :)
Very good instructors and swimming pool.. only concern is the assessments ar3 not so updated and sometimes take a while for kids to go to next level upUpdate: Discussed with the girls and they happily moved my son to the next level
My son has been swimming with Carlile since he was 3 months old and absolutely loves it. The facility is always kept to the cleanest standards. The change facilities are great - lovely warm showers, family change rooms and a nice big change area for the babies! The water is kept at a super warm temperature for the kiddies and if the parents aren’t keen on sitting poolside there is a lovely air conditioned viewing room. All of the teachers are very nurturing and passionate about their job. Highly recommend anyone looking for a swim school for their children to try it out and experience it for yourself.
