Get to know the Swim Academy Network


We're a family of swimmers

At the Swim Academy Network we are a family of children, teachers, parents, coaches and athletes passionate about swimming.

At each of our locations we're active in the local community, providing an inclusive swimming pathway from waterbabies to performance swimming.

Our vision

How it all started

The Swim Academy Network (formerly Propulsion Aquatic) was founded by Sebastian Bettiol in 2009 with just 10 swimmers. The program has since grow to three venues and over 500 enrolments, 30+ staff and numerous state and national championships.

From Sydney to Tokyo

Our swim levels system.

We believe in creating future Australian swimmers while celebrating the history of our sport. Our unique certificate system celebrates achievements named after Olympic cities.

The curriculum is based on the principle that each stroke has many individual skills and components, each of which must be individually taught and evaluated.
