Our Popular Swimming Squads in Sydney

Carlile Swimming is known in the industry for producing the most proficient swimmers around. We run Swimming Squads in Sydney to help swimmers reach their true potential and learn how to swim at both a social and competitive level.

In our Squad program, your child will develop advanced skills in all four strokes and gain incredible endurance as they swim around two kilometres each session, across all strokes.

At Carlile Swimming, our definition of being able to ‘swim well’ is that a child must be able to swim at least 200m freestyle, comfortably and proficiently and to competently display backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly, as well as the correct starts and turns. This is the aim of our Squad program, to create a fully proficient swimmer that can compete successfully at school carnivals and potentially move on to our Competitive Squads, if they choose.

Our popular Squad program is offered at six of our nine pools, with our Competitive Squads run at Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre. Scroll down for more information on our Squads program, or contact us today to book your child in for an assessment.

Our Squads, or Shark classes, are the final level of the Carlile Swim Program. For those kids who have been swimming with us for many years, reaching this level is a huge achievement. In the Shark level, your child will develop the following.

  • Advanced competitive skills in all four strokes.
  • Further refined technique.
  • Mastery of all competitive starts and turns.

By the end of the Shark program, your child will be able to swim 400m freestyle, 200m backstroke, 100m breastroke and 50m butterfly with total proficiency, and the correct competitive starts and turns.
