We Teach Swimming and Breed Champions! 

Squad Overview

Our coaches have on overriding mission; to assist each and every swimmer in realising their potential. Whether a swimmer has the ultimate goal of becoming an Olympian. Or simply reaching the lofty heights of school champion, our highly integrated and structured squads are designed to bring out the best in each and every swimmer - to provide a road map of measured improvement.

At Ignite Swimming we off two streams, Competition and fitness pathways. Our competitive pathway is targeted towards those swimmers that are wanting to compete at club races and external carnivals. Our competitive pathway programs include Junior, Competitive and Performance Squads. Where our fitness program (Swimfit) is designed for swimmers that do not wish to compete and only wish to swim for fitness and fun.

We’re more than a club, we’re a family!
