Our Story

Original Building

Sweeneys Swim school was founded in 1968 by Joan and Leon Sweeney and was the first private swim school in the western suburbs of Melbourne.


Its humble beginnings were in the backyard pool in Queen St Altona. Here they taught local children and school groups to swim and be safe in and around the water.


In 1988 the popularity of the swim school was so high it was moved to a larger space and its current location in Pier St, Altona.


Its current owners were long time employees of the Sweeney Family and have continued teaching high quality swim lessons to children of the local community.


We are passionate about our community and the Sweeney Swim families that we teach every day.
