COVID-19 update:

Current stay-at-home orders will be extended across all of Greater Sydney including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Wollongong. As a result, Dolphins Swim School classes at Epping Aquatic Centre and Macarthur Girls High School Pool for Term 3 which was due to commence on Monday 12 July 2021 will be delayed. Families that are currently enrolled will receive Family Credit to be used for future enrolments for missed lessons during the lockdown period. We will update the impacted families accordingly once a term 3 start date is known. Stay safe.


All programs are now operating with COVID safe measures.
