Carlile Swimming provides a fun, safe and caring environment for kids to learn to swim well.

Carlile Swimming has been teaching kids to swim well for 65 years so it’s no surprise Carlile Swimming is recognised as one of the world’s best swim schools. They have established industry leading teaching techniques that help bring out the best swimmer in each child. 

Carlile’s small, personalised lessons allow their teachers to really understand the needs of each child and help build their confidence and skills.

They’re aim is to help kids feel safer in and around the water, and develop a lifelong love of swimming. 

Carlile offers a variety of swim programs for every age and ability, as well as squads and school holiday intensive programs.
