Putting the “fun” into swimming fundamentals

Welcome to TJ's

TJ’s Swim School is a brand new swim school in the Sutherland Shire that is passionate about our community, the environment and the future that is being shaped for our kids. Yes, we are a swimming school – but we hope to reflect our values in what we do and teach, every day.

We take your experience with us seriously

At TJ’s Swim School, we aim for our lessons to be fun, personalised and professional, with a focus on consistently developing your child’s swim education. We offer flexible payment options along with both family and group discounts. Why not come check us out? We’d love for you to join the TJ’s family!

our lessons



The first step towards getting your child familiar with the water and lessons, for 6 months - 2 years with a parent/carer.



Learn to swim

The big step to independent swimming - we want your child to feel confident and comfortable to start building their skills.


Room for Improvement

No one likes feeling alienated, particularly when trying to improve on a skill. We appreciate that learning to swim is not just about teaching the little ones to swim in a group format – we offer private 1:1, 2:1 or even 3:1 lessons from toddlers through to adults. We also offer pre-squad (stroke correction) and a progression program to help move your child into a group lesson when they are ready.

access & inclusion

We are verified NDIS providers for the Innovative Community Participation registration group as well as being able to assist those who are Self-Managed or Plan-Managed NDIS participants. Our highly qualified team are committed to supporting those in the community who require specialised assistance. Our facility has also been purpose-built to ensure ease of access. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch so that we can discuss your individual requirements.


We are the owners and operators of our own small and friendly, family oriented swim school in the Sutherland Shire.

Update on COVID-19 Management

Hope you have all been keeping well, safe and getting through this very unusual time.

On a positive note, it did give us time to slow down construction and have another look at how we can improve TJ’s to be the very best for you when we open. We are just now in the final cleaning stages which will include a full sanitisation before opening. We are also in discussion with Brauer Industries, who supply our filtration and sanitisation system for our pool, regarding installation of their air/surface sanitisation system which will further ensure that the air and surfaces within the school are constantly treated and as clean as possible.

We are hearing through various sources that, with restrictions set to ease in the next few weeks, we may be able to open our doors, which is very exciting. We obviously will not be initially operating at full capacity as we will be putting measures in place to ensure that all of you and our staff are as protected as possible. These measures include:

  • Asking that all students have a quick shower before they come to the school for their lesson and be in their swimwear ready to go to avoid the use of bathrooms to change.
  • Arriving at your lesson no more than 5 mins prior and if possible wait in your car until a staff member indicates we are ready for you. If you are waiting outside, please be mindful of social distancing of 1.5 metres from other visitors.
  • Limiting your visits to one parent and avoid bringing other siblings who are not participating in a lesson, if at all possible. 
  • Requesting everyone who visits read the action plan on the front door before entering so you know how we’re working toward minimising risk.
  • Our instructors will be modifying their teaching methods to minimise any possible contamination whilst teaching and will modify teaching methods and utilise social distancing measures where possible.
  • All staff will be temperature checked on arrival at the school. 
  • Reducing the Bigs & Littles class numbers from 6 to 4 per lesson.

Obviously, these measures will be regularly reviewed and we will continue to monitor and follow Government and various industry body guidelines and advice when making any changes to our action plan. Based on all of this, we have put together a schedule for assessments to begin as soon as we get the go ahead to open. These will be limited to two children per time slot and will be spaced 30 minutes apart to give plenty of time for transition between. The dates will obviously need to be amended, however, this is an opportunity for you to secure a spot for this initial stage. The link to the assessment schedule is available on our home page.

Please let us know of any queries or concerns you may have. We are contactable via our email (enquiries@tjss.com.au) or phone (0499 857 946). 

We look forward to seeing you all poolside very soon!
TJ & Tracey Bell.
