Every child wants to swim faster, and every child wants to do well at their school carnival. Even for the most experienced swimmer who regularly races competitively, the meet that matters the most is the school carnival where they race against their friends.
Dive In squad sessions are tailored to work with children’s attention spans towards their goals, and keep all participants challenged and engaged, with short fast sets and a focus on technique every week. We cater for all levels and enjoy the opportunity to correct bad habits.
Once technique is improved, speed automatically comes. Our 25 metre indoor heated pool is a great advantage when it comes to technique and correction. This holistic approach to squad training is unique to Dive In, and the results speak for themselves.
50m Training Pool October – March (Warm Season) Our swimmers are improving fitness, technique and speed. Outdoor training commences from October in the 2 lane 50 metre lap pool. This pool is exclusively for our squad swimmers (weather permitting). Is your child ready for their carnival? Contact us to arrange an assessment.

In the interest of safety, it is a requirement that you or your child report to reception upon arrival at the centre for squad training, to have your child’s attendance recorded.

What is a Swimming Club?A Swimming Club is a non-profit organisation formed by a group of like-minded people who have an interest in swimming. The member parents coordinate a weekly race club night so individuals can practice racing & learn the fundamental values of swimming within a club, in a friendly fun environment. The swim club hires the Dive In Swimming Academy Centre to conduct weekly race evenings.
