The Carlile Swimming Team - Competitive Swimming Training At Its Best

The Carlile Swimming Team offers competitive swimming training for athletes who want to be the best they can be. We support our swimmers with the greatest possible platform to achieve their goals and reach the elite ranks of swimming.

Embracing the Carlile history of excellence and innovation, we coach our swimmers to develop advanced racing skills and conditioning for performance and ​dryland programs. We also provide access to world class services including sport science programs, physiotherapy, nutrition, biomechanics and psychological support.

Always at the cutting edge, and at pace with, the changing nature of competitive swimming, the Team continues to build on the exceptional coaching platform created by our founders, Forbes and Ursula Carlile. We also provide competitors, and their families, the opportunity to embrace a club which is setting the standard for innovation and personal achievement in competitive swimming.

Ryde Carlile Swimming Club

Before joining the Carlile Swimming Team, some of our swimmers progress through the Ryde Carlile Swimming Club, where they receive an introduction to competitive swimming.

The Carlile Swimming Team is closely aligned with the Ryde-Carlile Swimming Club, which was established by our founders, Forbes and Ursula Carlile. This Heritage Club provides an entry point to club swimming, for swimmers 12 years and under.

The Club runs races every Friday night from October to March and the last Friday of the month during winter, at Ryde Aquatic and Leisure Centre.

For more information on the Ryde Carlile Swimming Club, or to join the Club, go to www.ryde.swimming.org.au, email ryde.carlile@gmail.com or simply drop in on a Friday night.
