About Tateswim

Tateswim is a leading provider of swim squad training for competitive and recreational swimmers of all ages.

From juniors who are joining a squad for the first time right up to National level swimmers, Tateswim’s experienced and accredited coaches focus on improving technique, strength and fitness as part of the swimming program.

Tateswim is a family business managed by the Tate family – Bev and her two son’s Greg and Mark. Between them they have a combined 75 years of coaching experience. They care about the progress of every swimmer and encourage members to enjoy swimming as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Tateswim was established in 1991 and has been operating at the Monash Aquatic and Recreation Centre since it opened in late 2001. Swimmers come from a diverse range of backgrounds and join a positive and inclusive community of swimmers who love their sport.

Swimmers join Tateswim when they want to become stronger swimmers and develop their swimming further than what is offered in traditional learn to swim environments.

Tateswim is affiliated with the M1 Swimming Club - members join M1 to compete in local, State and National competitions.

We believe in...

Long term approach

We try to instil in swimmers a life-long interest in swimming with a focus at all levels on the following: 

  • Enjoyment
  • Improving skills & technique
  • Building character
  • Appreciating the journey
  • Increasing strength


Maintaining a balanced lifestyle

We encourage swimmers to maintain a balanced lifestyle which includes striking a good balance between sport, study, social, family and relaxation. 


Family friendly scheduleS

We try our best to be family friendly by holding classes at reasonable times and having multiple squads training simultaneously so siblings can swim around the same time at the same pool.


Encouraging adults to swim

If parents enjoy swimming, their children are more likely to enjoy swimming and become stronger swimmers.


Catering equally for BOTH competitive and non-competitive swimmers

We appreciate and respect that people may wish to train for different reasons to achieve different goals. 


Supportive team environment

We try to create a strong sense of community where people feel the pool is their 'home away from home'.
