I highly recommend Swim Development Australia , An absolutely positive ongojng experience for me and my family,

we started in 2021 attending lessons with Kyle, he is very professional and such an excellent tutor with adults and children as well!

My children (9yo and 5yo) and I just love the environment, lessons with Kyle, and it is remarkable how they speed up with learning professionally with more fun and much faster than in other services we tried for years, how each individual gets the adjusted learning technique that suits their level.

Pool is super warm and private, wonderful green area for fresh air while waiting kids to finish, and still can peek and check their progress

We live around the area , it is very convenient and quiet home-like environment with great quality and hygiene standards.

Thanks Kyle & team , keep up the great work!

Kyle has been an outstanding swimming teacher for our twins. One was terrified of the deep and it was hindering her ability to learn to swim. Their gross motor skills are delayed for their age and we needed a teacher with knowledge and patience to help them improve. Kyle has been exactly that. We saw improvements from the first lesson. He taught my daughter not to be afraid and has improved their stroke and fitness with huge improvements in just one term. We have tried all the swim schools and Kyle is the best we have seen by far.

My three kids loved their lessons with SDA. Two of my kids were beginner swimmers (2/4 years of age) and within one term were able to comfortably float and return back to the edge of the pool without assistance (neither can touch the bottom of the pool). We’ve been to other swim schools and the progress was definitely much faster with Swim Development Australia.

Thanks SDA, will look to start again in the new year.

I couldn’t recommend Swim Development more highly. My kids (now 10 and 8) have had both Will and Kyle over the past 2 years. Each of them are both so kind and patient which is exactly what my kids have needed, allowing for just the right opportunity to teach at the right moment. They are highly skilled in swim instruction and just nice guys! I can’t thank them both enough!

                 - Dana Ingster

My kids adore Kyle... they never want to get out of the pool when the lesson is finished! Highly recommend!

               - Helene Chassay

Watching my daughter’s water confidence grow has been so wonderful! Her 1 on 1 lessons with SDA has improved her abilities in such a short time and I’m glad I switched from the local swim school. Wonderful facilities and highly recommend!

I would highly recommend swim development Australia. Kyle and Roxanne are excellent teachers, my kids have come so far with their swimming. The facilities are great and my kids love the warm pool.!

                 - Angie Cashion

Having tried a few other swim schools, SDA has been monumental for my son’s progress and my understanding of swimming, looking forward to next term already!

                 - W Squared Coaching

All the instructors and amazing, 1:1 coaching to meet the needs of the individual. Our kids are thriving here.

                 - M Family

My 6 and 4 year olds have progressed really well since starting swimming at SDA. The instructors are kind but work them hard. The pool is great too - no chlorine so the kids skin doesn't get irritated and quieter and less overwhelming than a public pool, if you've got a child who's a bit sensitive.

                 - Ada Tong

Kyle and all the other instructors are amazing. Their care and skill has helped enhance swim capabilities fast and with confidence.

                 - Sherry Montano

My kids love SDA... they never want to get out of the pool when the lesson is finished!  Highly recommend!

Unbelievable with kids and I wouldn't entrust anybody else to teach my kids to swim �

Hi. Just wanted to say a massive thank you to SDA for training my son, Otis, to dive. Otis went on to play the role of Aquaman as a 13 year old in the DC movie that came out on Boxing Day. Thank you SDA!

                 - Susan Maree

My daughter has been scared of water in her face from a young age & swimming in general.
After a few lessons with SDA she now is happy for water to be in her eyes which is a huge achievement.
and now has her swimming alone at 4years old and after only 10 lessons, she loves her swimming day & wakes up every morning asking if today is the day we see her instructor.
I can not recommend SDA highly enough.
