Level Guides
School Age

Our infant classes are taught by trained infant qualified teachers and focus on developmentally appropriate water familiarisation and safety skills. A parent or carer is required to be in the water for this class.

Tadpole A (6-12 months)

Tadpole B (1-2 years)

Tadpole C (2-3 years)


Children can be in an independent swimming class from 3 years old. Pre-school age classes are offered up to Level 2 on weekday mornings, allowing a quieter learning environment for younger swimmers.

School Age

Our school age classes offer a progressive curriculum of 7 levels, ranging from Developing 1 to Level 6 offering technique and water safety skills. We are proud to be in partnership with Melbourne Swimming Club and offer a streamlined progression directly into their squads on completion of Level 6. 


Ruyton Girls' School has partnered with Melbourne Swimming Club (MSC), one of Melbourne’s premier competitive swimming clubs to operate the training squads program at Ruyton’s aquatic facility known as MSC at Ruyton

Led by former Australian Olympic Coach Ian Pope and supported by Julie-Anne Roberts, MSC at Ruyton provides squad sessions from pre-squad, through to a state and national level. MSC staff also coach Ruyton’s SYDSA and GSV swimming teams.
By joining forces, Melbourne Swimming Club and Ruyton Girls' School have leveraged their shared focus on empowering individuals to reach their potential and created a powerful collaboration. This partnership fosters the development of swimming performance at Ruyton and strengthen MSC’s reputation for quality coaching expertise, and the development of exceptional athletes.
