Get ready to get wet! Great for bonding with your bub, these lessons are held with a parent or carer present in the pool. Our warm water and air temperature keep bubs and parents happy and comfortable.

Waterbabies classes encourage children to become comfortable submerging and floating on their backs. Specially adapted games, songs and routines are used to foster confidence and familiarity. Though the classes are lots of fun every lesson is teaching children to be safer in, on and around water.

For refining technique

Our Stroke Development Program has 3 ability-based levels, with our friendly staff determining the most appropriate level for your child. The program is designed to develop correct technique across all four strokes, and increase endurance.

After completing the Stroke Development program, children will be proficient in backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle, competitive dives and turns, and have a basic understanding of swimming rules and principles. A child who is confident, proficient and has endurance is a child less likely to panic if they find themselves in a difficult situation.

Hook familyCarlile Swimming Castle Cove

“We switched to Carlile after a couple of years of lessons at a different centre. The experienced staff observed my daughter's swimming and made simple corrections which yielded an immediate improvement. I was very impressed and frequently recommend them. The care and enthusiasm they have shown to my children each week over the past 7 years has been excellent and my children are always enthusiastic for swimming as a result.”
