Competitive swimmers need to be nurtured and developed. Talent ID is a transitional swim level between the swim school and competitive swimming. Talent ID competitive swim squads for children swim 3 times per week (including during the school holidays) and focus on giving your child the opportunity to continue learning the swimming skills required at the swim club level while developing a consistent technique and experiencing a competitive swimming environment. 

All Talent ID swim squads are taught by our highly trained and accomplished swim coaches in purpose-built swimming pools and are a specifically designed swimming program for competitive swimmers. They will constantly challenge development and progression using the most up to date techniques to enhance their enjoyment, confidence, and development of competitive swimming for events including junior nationals.

A quick swim assessment is required to start them off at the correct level. The purpose-built learn to swim pools and program structure aid development and progression through the levels as soon as they have attained the required criteria, and our booking system is designed to make your life as easy as possible.

These swim classes are available 7 days a week and run all year round.

This progressive swimming model allows your child to move to the next level as soon as they have attained the required criteria - so you don't have to wait until the end of a block of lessons to move up!
