Our courses are aimed at providing all the skills required to be safe in and around water.  When you graduate the final stage you will have attained all the below skills and be ready to move from Learn to Swim, and in to a Squad Program.

  • Treading Water / Sculling

  • Floating

  • Safe Entry and Exit from water

  • Survival Swimming while Clothed

  • Basic Swimming Skills


Once you graduate from DR Swim, the next step in continuing your swimming is to join a squad training program.  Squad training will provide you with a continuation of your swimming program, with a focus on technique and speed.  You will be able to race against other swimmers at our club meets held at either Darling Range Sports College or Guildford Grammar, and also Swimming WA swimming meets at HBF stadium. 

As a reward for all your hard work in achieving the final learn to swim stage, the Guildford and Kalamunda Districts Swimming Club would like to offer you a special New Member offer.  Please check with the club for further details.
