About Us

State Swim Schools have been providing the very best in aquatic education, in state of the art swimming lesson facilities to young Australians in Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne for over 40 years.

Our three different programs; the “Swim and Play” program (Waterbabies and Kindergarten), the “400 Gold” program (4 years and above) and the “Health and Sport” program (squad training) all offer its swimmers unique, quality, innovative lessons delivered by our fully qualified and experienced team members.

At State Swim we are constantly striving to ensure our swimming lessons cater for how children best learn the skills required to make them stronger, safer swimmers. Small class sizes, hands on instructors who are in the water with swimmers, clear verbal explanations of skills, demonstration of skills either by the instructor or by short skills videos on tablets, and manipulation of swimmers so they can feel the correct way to do a skill, grouped together, maximise a swimmers ability to learn the skills required in their lessons.

Revision is also a big part of our program. Our experience has shown that swimmers learn through a combination of reviewing previously learned skills so that these skills form a habit whilst also introducing new skills to keep the swimmer challenged, motivated and constantly learning.

We understand the importance of swimming lessons being accessible for people of all ages and abilities. This is evident in our main learn to swim programs, and it is also supported by the strength of other programs we offer including; SWIMVAC (school holiday program), adult lessons, lap swimming, aquarobics and our in-term swimming program for local schools.

Summer

Swimming lessons in the Summer

Swimming for fun in summer is great. However, to become stronger, safer swimmers we recommend our swimmers continue with their regular swimming lessons.

Regular lessons

With a regular swimming lesson (we recommend once a week) you will see how quickly swimmers can progress through our classes.

Winter

Swimming lessons in the Winter

Swimming in winter is just as important as swimming in Summer. Many summer, water-based activities stop over winter but we recommend swimmers continue with regular lessons.

Practice before Summer

Continuity in your child’s lessons ensures they are steadily progressing and helps them become stronger, safer swimmers for when the warm weather arrives.

Indoors and heated pools

All our pools are indoors and heated to 32 degrees. We also ensure the air temperature is warm for our swimmers and spectators and have change room facilities with warm showers.
