Essentials for Sporting Organisations

Sporting Schools is an Australia-wide program in partnership with over 30 national sporting organisations (NSO), of which Swimming Australia is one.


Junior Dolphins logoSwim schools and aquatic centres may be contacted by their local school to deliver the sporting schools program. Swimming Australia encourages all swim schools and aquatic facilities delivering Sporting Schools to register as an Optus Junior Dolphins Delivery Centre so that your organisation can have direct access to this national junior swimming program. 

Swimming Australia’s Optus Junior Dolphins program focuses on kids having fun with their friends, water safety and participation in a safe and non-competitive environment. The program has been designed to enhance foundation swimming skill development, providing a non-competitive environment suitable for young swimmers to develop skills for lifelong participation in swimming.

NOTE: As a minimum standard, swim teachers should hold a Swim Australia Teacher accreditation or the AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety accreditation (or equivalent). More information on these courses can be found here.


If your swim school or aquatic facility is interested in delivering the Sporting Schools program please contact Swimming Australia for more information on the registration process.
