At Carlile Swimming, we’ve been teaching kids to swim well for 65 years. We opened Australia’s first commercial swim school in 1955 with a few hundred students and today we teach over 20,000 kids to swim each week. Even though we’ve grown, our approach has stayed the same – to teach kids to be confident and proficient swimmers and to instil in them a lifelong love of the water.
We view swimming as a journey, one that develops a child from water safety to stroke mastery and beyond. We’re there with you, every step of the way, to bring out the best swimmer in your child.
Our founders, Forbes and Ursula Carlile, are pioneers of Australian swimming education. They were just as passionate about teaching water safety and swimming skills to kids as they were about training Olympic swimmers. They created a system of innovative teaching methods that have made Carlile a leading swim school, not only in Sydney, but across the world. For more information about our history click here.
Even though we have a rich history of swimming education, it’s how we’ve developed our teaching programs over time that continues to make Carlile the number one choice for childrens swimming lessons.
We run expert swim programs for all ages and abilities, at our nine conveniently located swim schools in Sydney. For more information, contact us today or pop in to your local swim school, we look forward to meeting you.
