We believe that by using the power of sport to develop your children’s character and encourage them to become well-rounded individuals who embody the ‘Trojan Traits’, they will ultimately have a far greater chance of achieving their aims in life and becoming exceptional swimmers.

We start with understanding your child before committing to their growth. You are not just another swimmer with us; you are family.

As the leader of Trojan, I take pride in fostering a collaborative environment where everyone, from our fantastic staff to the swimmers and primarily you, the parents, work together to cultivate an environment where children can flourish – and I would like to thank you in advance for upholding our traditional values and fostering a passion for being better every day.

Welcome to the Trojan Community. Welcome to Traditionally Different. Welcome to Trojan Sports.

Trojan Sports is an amazing facility that caters to kids of all ages and swimming levels. I have been thoroughly impressed by the coaches' professionalism and dedication in teaching each of my children. They have all made remarkable progress during our time with them, and I am excited to see what they can accomplish in the future under their guidance.

Joining Trojan has been an incredible experience for my son, and I couldn’t be happier with the decision. From the moment we stepped foot into the club, it was evident that the coaches are not only skilled but also incredibly passionate about what they do. Their dedication to helping each swimmer reach their full potential is truly commendable. My son looks forward to every session and the atmosphere is always positive and encouraging.
– Jou Mana

Our swimming sessions at Trojan is the one activity that both my children look forward to! The coaches are all superb, (Naomi, Lindsey, Anna), extremely professional, have amazing communication skills, (both with parents and students!) and are truly excellent at working with children. They have really encouraged my 7 year old daughter, who has been enrolled since last year, to make incredible progress and really hone in her swimming skills.
– Samar Kamali

The team at Trojan are simply better at inspiring, coaching, and empowering my children than any other swim academy we have been a part of. My children are not only making friends, they are improving as swimmers and developing strengths and qualities through the opportunities, personalised engagement and community the Academy offers.
