Our Kids Swimming Lessons

John Sugden Swim School is the best place for your children to learn to swim, with unique, proven programs based on three development stages – Brain, Stimulation, and Movement. We offer specialized swimming classes at pools in Balwyn for children of all ages under 16 from Monday to Thursday, and in our swimming pool at Glen Waverley on Sunday. Our swimming program is developed for the swimmers to use their instincts to swim around in the water. The primary focus of this intensive swimming program for kids is on water safety. Proper instruction and kids swimming lessons help your kids develop vital skills that help them stay safe in and under the water.

With more than three decades of experience in designing professional coaching programs for swimmers and athletes, John Sudgen has developed a whole new approach to teach swimming in a way that redefines the swimming technique, the overall approach to swimming, and water safety for children with innovative swimming lessons.

NUMBAT is the Junior Squad. It is the squad preparing for competition, if the swimmer is interested. Guided by JSSS coaches the NUMBAT swimmers provide their own Goal Times, each term.
