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.

CURRENT COVID-19 Management

We obviously will not be 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:

  • Immediately register for our customer portal for up-to-date access to our COVID-19 Management Plan.
  • Asking that all students, where possible, have a quick shower before they come to the school for their lesson and be in their swimwear, including caps, goggles and, where necessary, swim nappy, ready to go to avoid the use of bathrooms to change.
  • Arriving at your lesson no more than 5 mins prior or if arriving early, waiting in a designated area until a staff member indicates we are ready for you. 
  • Wearing of a face mask when inside (exceptions for those under 12 and parents participating in Bigs & Littles classed once in the pool).
  • If you are waiting either outside or inside, please be mindful of social distancing of 1.5 metres from other visitors and use any markers provided as a guide.
  • Limiting your visits to two parents/carers 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.
  • Temperature checking and logging all staff on arrival at the school. 
  • Taking contact details of all visitors using the QR code located at the main entry and at the top of the pool deck (on the glass door of the platform lift).
  • 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 ( or phone (0499 857 946). 

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