Creating proficient swimming skills is essential for Australian children, encompassing not only the ability to swim in pools but also the necessary survival skills for other bodies of water. At Marlins Swim School in Mackay, we offer fun and safe learn-to-swim programs suitable for all ages and skill levels. Our primary objective is to ensure that children are safe in and around water. We aim for them to possess self-rescue skills for critical situations and effective swimming techniques, granting them lifelong competence. Additionally, we strive to foster a love and respect for the water in all of our students, ultimately making them confident and safe swimmers. Our year-round children’s learn-to-swim lessons in Mackay cater to kids aged 3 to 14 years old, generally following our infant swimming lessons. At Marlins Swim School, your child will rapidly build swimming confidence and mastery through five comprehensive stages of achievement, transforming them into accomplished young swimmers. Children benefit from our specially designed training pool, progressive play-based teaching programs, and focused coaching led by our trained and Austswim-certified instructors.

To assist every child to reach their full potential regardless of ability.

Marlins Swim School’s swimming lessons in Mackay are available in the mornings, after school, and on weekends. These classes are structured to meet the developmental needs of older children who can focus for longer durations. Small class sizes enable personalised instruction and correction from teachers while allowing students to learn from their peers.

Our Mackay swimming lessons cover essential skills such as body position, backstroke, freestyle, breaststroke, butterfly, and water safety. The engaging, play-based sessions are divided into five competency levels, where your child must master the necessary skills at each level before advancing. This allows them to learn at their own pace alongside peers of similar ability levels, reducing any pressure.

By the conclusion of our learn-to-swim program, your child will be nearly carnival-ready! At this stage, we recommend they join one of our squads, where they can acquire competitive-level skills and advanced racing strategies.
