If your child has graduated from Emma’s Babyswim, is too old to participate, or you’d like to improve your own swimming skills, our partner business John Sugden Swim School (JSSS) offers comprehensive swimming lessons for all ages, 5 to 100 and beyond.

Since 1995 JSSS has been helping people learn to swim to the best of their abilities, through the use of a specially designed swimming program. It was founded by John himself, but has since grown into a thriving community of swim teachers and swimmers of all skill levels. Regardless of where you’re at with your swimming ability, JSSS can provide you with tailored support to help you reach your swimming goals.

JSSS offers an intuitive approach to learning to swim, based on more than 25 years of teaching and coaching recreational, competitive, and elite swimmers.

The program is unique in that it has never involved using kickboards, flippers, or other swimming aids. It’s a completely natural and integrated way of experiencing your body learning to swim. It’s this approach that makes their lessons incredibly effective, helping people to naturally react to water and swimming as if they were walking.

JSSS swimming lessons are run out of different private school swimming pools throughout Melbourne, making them easily accessible. Additionally, they offer a range of flexible swimming lesson times, with group lessons run throughout the week and on weekends. If you’re not sure which lesson is right for you or your child, don’t hesitate to call! John and the team at JSSS are always happy to answer questions and help you get the lessons that best fit your needs.
