Birkdale Swim Squad

Operating out of Birkdale State school Pool under the leadership of coaches Rob and Pedro.

Our coaching teams mission is to give swimmers a little more in the pool supporting those coming out of Learn to swim, competing at Breakers or wanting to go a little further. And of course a little something for mum and dad in the evenings too.

The local swim club Birkdale Breakers offers a great experience to extend your swimming, ask our coaches for more information.

We hope to see you by the pool.

There is no need for an assessment for the Parent & Child Classes as these classes are broken into age-group progressions.


Parents are encouraged (and asked) to wear a rashie or a loose t-shirt in the water to give your child something to grab. Otherwise you may find you will lose some chest hair or have your bikini straps undone by accident!
