Optus Junior Dolphins

Optus Junior Dolphins is Swimming Australia’s exciting new national junior swimming program!

Delivered in a fun, safe and social environment, Optus Junior Dolphins gives kids the chance to have fun with their friends, improve their swimming and build their confidence in the pool.

Optus Junior Dolphins focuses on fun and kids are taught skills through games, swimming and personal development. It’s all delivered in a safe, social and non-competitive environment to make sure your child has a great experience.

Target Age

Optus Junior Dolphins is great for kids who have already learnt basic swimming skills. The program has been developed with kids aged 5 to 8 in mind, but it suits a range of ages and abilities, so your child can learn and progress at a pace that is right for them.


By taking part in Optus Junior Dolphins, your child will:
  • Receive free club membership, if they are 7 and under
  • Receive a fun pack with an Optus Junior Dolphins t-shirt and bag
  • Be part of a nationally-recognised program that is endorsed by the Australian Dolphins Swim Team


Optus Junior Dolphins is a key part of Swimming Australia’s pathway and is designed to help kids as they transition from Learn to Swim programs into club or recreational swimming.
