Who is Hampton Swim School?
Hampton Swim School was established by Julia Ham, a former Australian Swimming representative, in 1999. In between her gruelling training schedule, Julia found a passion for swimming at the grassroots level as a learn to swim instructor.
Hampton Swim School was born out of Julia’s family’s pool in McConnell St, Bulimba. Outgrowing this 10m pool, the Morningside (Pashen St) pool became our new home in 2002. Norman Park (Hipwood St) and Bulimba (Oxford St) State School pools followed soon after, and our Kindergym and Gymnastics program - TumbleTastics – commenced in 2011 at our venue in 28 Malcolm St, Hawthorne.
At Hampton Swim School we believe that aquatic education can contribute to saving your child’s life. Our certified instructors are passionate about not only providing essential water safety and life-skills, but ensuring positive experiences for your child. Our tailored programs are aimed at developing the ‘whole’ child, and deliver consistent results.
