Pre-school programme

From the outset SwimMagic aims to have children as safe as possible in, on and around water. We focus almost solely on body position and kick exercises to speed up progress for our youngest swimmers.

School age programme

5 years +

The SwimMagic school age programme is unparalleled. We have utilised the experience and knowledge of over 200 instructors to develop a consistent system that is being constantly improved and refined.


Swimming squads

While most swim schools are structured with goals focused around distance, SwimMagic has decided to progress children through squad levels based on their ability to hold technique.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are a great way to kick start your swimming. Private lessons are a must for any one who maybe nervous about being in the water, may not like being in group classes or for those people who just need some technique correction.
