Advanced Swimming Lessons

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.



The first of our competitive 60 minute swim squads introduces your child to fine tune their technique of the 4 swimming strokes plus turns and dives. Tuna swimmers begin preparing for swim club.



A Marlin swimmer is a swimmer preparing for swim club swimming. This 60 mins squad requires them to swim 2x per week.

Swim Assessments

Northern Arena’s learn to swim classes are set by ability rather than age. For children aged 3+ years we can assess your child’s ability to ensure they begin swimming at the correct level within the swim school programme. 

Each learn to swim assessment will only take 5-10 minutes where the instructor will ask your child to perform a few simple tasks in the water.

For your child’s FREE no obligation learn to swim assessment, you can book here.

All times are subject to availability.

All children under 3 years of age a swim assessment is not required. Please see here for more.

Excellent Coaching Staff

"I just wanted to congratulate your swimming teachers. Over the years we have had the pleasure of our children receiving excellent, patient coaching from a variety of teachers. Each has been fantastic. A special thanks to my daughter's teacher, her firm but reassuring and lovely nature is really pushing my daughter. Keep up the good work." K. Hill
