The Swing Academy is different to a regular after-school care. We are not a child minding service and not a registered after school care. Instead we are an indoor sports centre that offers structured extracurricular sports and classes taught by team of specialised teachers and coaches. We offer opportunities for children to be exposed to and involved in different sports and extracurricular classes to broaden their abilities and interests.
Do you have a trial?
Yes, we offer trials for most of our classes but school pick-up is not included in the trial.
To give your child the opportunity to try a class before committing to the rest of the term, we offer a one-off trial class. We charge $29 for the trial class.
Promotions and offers are subject to change at any time without notice, from time to time at our sole discretion.

How do you transport the children from the school to the centre?
Children are transported by car or mini-bus from their school to our centre. The Swing Academy employs additional staff to ensure the safety of all children during these transition times. At times, we may employ the services of a third-party operator to transport the children to our centre.
What is the ratio of adults to students? How big are the groups?
The Swing Academy has a staff ratio of 1 adult for every 10 children. The daily class/session has a maximum of twenty students per day in total.
Do you offer government rebates?
There is no government rebates with our service as The Swing Academy is not an after school care service. Our centre offers different extracurricular classes every day to give children the opportunity to try a variety of activities, making their after school time enjoyable and inspiring, rather than just being “supervised” like most other after school care centres. Think of it like this, we offer you and your children the option of having great and enriched activities during the week facilitated by teachers and specialists in their fields, saving yourself time driving kids around to classes on weekends.
How do you divide the classes by age groups?
The Swing Academy has tailored the program to suit kids from 5-12 years old. We divide them into groups of 5-8 years old and 9-12 years old.
What are the qualifications of the Swing Academy team?
All our teachers, instructors and staff members of The Swing Academy have extensive experience and qualifications in their specialised fields. T working with children in this particular age group. They have been thoroughly screened, have working with children's checks and first aid certificates.
