School Aged Swim Programmes

ORCA Squad

This squad is focused on building technique and fitness by training two times per week for 45 minutes.
These squads will have a technique focus for the first 15 minutes of each class on all 4 strokes as well as starts and turns for joining a swim club, the last 30 minutes of the class is building fitness and stamina.
The aim on graduating from the Orca Squad is that swimmers will be ready to join a swim squad or play other aquatic sports such as Water Polo, Underwater Hockey and Diving.
Classes are 45 mins in length and can have up to 6 participants between 2 lanes at our purpose built facility. Swimmers in this squad will train twice a week.
We also have a cap policy at our swim school - all children aged 3 years and older we want wearing swim caps for their lessons (unless they have very short hair). The reasons for this is two fold as we have a problem with hair going through our filtration systems and pumps as well as that for children it can at times make it easier for them to swim if their hair is all tucked away in a cap.

We have a good range of caps (in different materials to suit all our swimmers) and goggles available for purchase through our Little Makos Shop or you are welcome to bring your own to the lessons.


Lessons are priced at $150.00 per child for the term (10 lessons).
We offer a 10% family discount off the total price for booking more than one child from the same family for lessons.

We also are running  1 x School Holiday Intensive Programme in October which runs in the first week of the school holidays. 
The cost for the 5 days is $75.00 with a 10% family discount for families booking more than one child in for classes with us. Your child will swim everyday at the same time for 5 consecutive days and is a great way to kickstart your child's swimming. Jake who is the manager of the swim school and Ellie one of our most experienced instructors are the instructors for both weeks.
