Swim School and Swimming Lessons

St Leonard’s College Swim School is staffed by highly qualified professionals with experience at national and international level. We offer swimming lessons for swimmers from 3 years of age “Water Awareness” to District Squad level. Focusing on survival skills and stroke development, a program is offered to swimmers over the age of three and aims to assist them in the development of their aquatic skills.

New swimming students should contact the Swimming Office on 9909 9454 to organise a swimming assessment to determine their swim level.

A wide range of aquatics programs including adult fitness sessions is also available. Our Swim School is open to the members of the wider community, with priority bookings for St Leonard’s families.

St Leonard’s Swimming Club

A wealth of opportunities to represent the College and/or St Leonard’s College Swimming Club in external swim meets is open to those who commit themselves to fitness and swim training with their coach.

St Leonard’s Swimming Club is affiliated with Swimming Victoria and recognised by Swimming Australia. As a result, members will compete and represent St Leonard’s Swimming Club at local, state and national levels.

Whilst the key benefits of membership relate to the development of our swimmers and their competition performance, other benefits also exist for younger swimmers and family members including team gear, access to special events and invitations to social occasions.
