Townsville Grammar School students enjoy access to an Olympic size, four lane, swimming pool on the North Ward campus. The pool is an all-seasons facility equipped with gas heating and thermal blankets for cooler months and shade coth covers above the pool for warmer periods of the year.
Two swimming programmes operate from this facility; Swim@Grammar and The Kokoda Spirit Swimming Club. Both programmes are co-ordinated by TGS Head Swim Coach, Mr Glenn Beringen.
The Swim@Grammar programme is available to TGS students interested in building their fitness and improving their swimming through squad style training sessions. The timetables are available to download below.
Kokoda Spirit Swimming Club
TGS shares a partnership with the Kokoda Spirit Swimming Club, allowing TGS students with competitive swimming interests to access advanced coaching programmes and Club level competitions throughout the year. Kokoda Spirit Swimming Club membership is required to access these sessions. TGS students enjoy School sponsored membership in Terms 1 and 4.

General Excellence Bursary
Swimmers with outstanding potential and/or recognition may apply to the Principal for part-tuition fee relief through provision of a General Excellence Bursary. These bursaries are available where a high performing swimmer entering Years 7-12 has clearly demonstrated swimming standards at a very high-elite level. The provision of this tuition fee relief is to assist families to offset the cost of supporting an elite athlete and all the associated expenses of training and competition.
