Norm Hardwick’s first swimming school was at Sylvania Heights in the 1960’s. He very quickly earned a reputation of excellence in teaching children to swim. In 1970, he relocated to Maroubra Swimming School.
His ability to make learning to swim an enjoyable and rewarding experience for children is a philosophy that is now carried on by his son Malcolm, and daughter Vicki, together with a team of motivated and caring staff.
All teachers are accredited with Swim Australia and Australian Swimming Coaches and Teachers Association (ASCTA) to ensure they are equipped with the latest developments in swimming.
This, combined with our long-term experience, enables us to develop programs to achieve the best possible results with your children.
It is our philosophy at Maroubra Swimming School that if a child is happy and comfortable in their environment they will be more enthusiastic to learn. We are renowned for our patient and caring approach to our teaching as well as our very small class numbers.
We are a private teaching school and do not have the distraction of public swimmers. Warm water is essential to relax frightened children and enable them to learn to swim – our pool is heated to 33°C. Parents are requested to stay and watch their children’s progress from our viewing room.
Swimming is the most beneficial form of exercise. It increases lung capacity in asthmatics, improves co-ordination and concentration, tones muscles and builds self-esteem. Our system of payment is unique in that we DO make allowances for illness. Please ask for our information sheet for full details.
