Optus Junior Dolphins

 

Optus Junior Dolphins is an exciting new national swimming program where kids can have fun with their friends and improve their swimming in a safe environment.

After successful pilots across Australia, Optus Junior Dolphins was launched nationally in September 2016! The program will be delivered through swimming clubs, swim schools and primary schools.

What’s the program?

Developed in partnership with industry experts, Optus Junior Dolphins is designed to increase participation in swimming in a fun and engaging way, helping kids across Australia develop their swimming skills further at a pace that’s right for them.

Aimed at kids who have already learnt the basics of swimming, Optus Junior Dolphins is designed for kids aged between 5 and 8 years old. It’s perfect for kids in the mini and junior squads of swimming clubs, or for those who are interested in joining a swimming club for the first time.

Optus Junior Dolphins focuses on fun and teaches skills within a non-competitive learning environment to encourage kids to continue their swimming journey.
