Vision Statement

To provide the highest quality, leading edge swim programs which are safe, inclusive and where learning is fun.


We have a standardised stroke development process that all teachers understand and follow.  We are also acutely aware that a 'one-size-fits-all' approach will not always suit some individual students so we do modify these processes where appropriate to deliver value to such students.


We aim to deliver

A swim program that is both enjoyable for children as well as challenging them to succeed and achieve above and beyond their current levels of proficiency.


A strong focus on technique – we ensure that all children learn swimming techniques that will serve them well throughout their lives whether as competitive or purely recreational swimmers.


A professional and co-operative working relationship with all our customers.

Our team

Swimming with Excellence employs staff with industry knowledge, appropriate qualifications, swimming backgrounds and technical skills to deliver a top quality program.  Our staff members continually work towards engaging the children to ensure their swimming journey is enjoyable, educational, motivating, challenging and rewarding.
