About Us

Gummy Shark Swim School was established in 2011, after we were lucky enough to secure the prime space on a Saturday and Sunday morning at Caulfield Hospital Hydrotherapy Pool. While the program had modest beginnings, we now also offer Thursday afternoon classes, and over time our program has grown from 50 students to today hosting more than 250 children for lessons each week!

In February 2016, a second location was opened at Wheelers Hill.  In 3 years, we have grown to more than 150 students across a four-day-a-week program.

We have been lucky enough to secure pool space in Term 3 2019 at a third location in Greensborough, 3 days per week (already at 5 students!), and introduce girls-only swimming to the local community at Berendale School in Hampton East. We are excited to offer our program to a new community!

As we are small, we can offer small class sizes with a personal touch. Each child receives individual attention, providing great value-for-money for parents.

What we do

The staff at Gummy Shark Swim School pride ourselves on providing the highest quality swimming lessons. We take the time to get to know, and really listen to all our clients (both parents and children!) and try to best understand their individual needs. The relationship that the client has with the staff is vital to their ability to learn, and it’s that personal approach that makes us successful.

We not only teach fundamental swimming skills, but educate the public about water safety in all environments. We teach children to feel comfortable taking risks and overcoming their fears. We teach children to be confident both in and outside of the pool environment. We teach children to have fun in water, which they can then enjoy all their life!
