Industry Leading Swimming Lessons Since 1955

At Carlile, we love teaching kids to swim. From our Waterbabies, who are just beginning their swimming journey, to our Squad swimmers who are mastering their strokes, our aim is to teach a life-long love of swimming.

Carlile Swimming has been offering swimming lessons in Sydney for 65 years. From opening Australia’s first commercial swim school through to our recently opened state of the art facilities, we’ve always delivered swim programs that teach children to be more confident and efficient swimmers.

Our programs have developed over the years, as we innovate and adapt our teaching methods to create even better results for our swimmers. To help with this, we custom build all our swimming pools to allow our kids to feel comfortable and build confidence at each level of our program.

At Carlile, we’ve always believed that to swim well is an asset for life. We offer swimming lessons for all ages and abilities at our nine, conveniently located pools. Click here to find a pool near you, or keep scrolling for more information about our swim programs.

Water Confidence - 3 months to 2.5 years

Our Waterbabies classes are a great introduction to swimming with specially adapted games, songs and routines to build water confidence. These classes also encourage children to become comfortable submerging and floating on their backs. Even though the classes are lots of fun, every lesson is teaching children to be safer in, on, under and around water. Click here for more information on our Water Confidence program.

Learn To Swim - 2.5 years and over

Our industry leading Learn to Swim program is offered in two age groups. We have a Preschool Learn To Swim program for children over the age of 2.5 years, as well as a School Age program for older children. Both of these programs have three, ability-based levels that help children grow in confidence and begin to develop their freestyle and backstroke techniques.
