Learn to Swim

The Southport School offers comprehensive Learn to Swim lessons for both boys and girls, from absolute beginners through to the entry-level squad – the Blue Sharks Squad.

Both Private Lessons and Group Lessons are available, Monday to Friday after School Hours and Saturday mornings. TSS boasts some of the best student to coach ratios of anywhere in the country.

One of the real advantages of the Learn to Swim program is the effective transition from Learn to Swim through to the TSS Aquatic Squad Program.

Janice Cole (TSS Learn to Swim Manager) and Mel Goulding (TSS Senior Learn to Swim Instructor) have designed and implemented skills that once learnt in the early stages of Learn to Swim then accelerate the swimmers through the levels.

The key focus for all swimmers in the TSS Learn to Swim program is not to swim as far as you can, but to swim as technically well as possible, enabling a faster progression with strong technical / foundation skills.
