A 20-year-old swimming instructor has been charged with sexually abusing two young girls during lessons on Sydney's north shore.

Kyle James Henk Daniels allegedly abused an eight-year-old girl and a six-year-old girl on separate occasions at a Mosman pool last month.

Detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes team arrested him at a home in Balgowlah yesterday afternoon and took him to Manly Police Station.

The man was charged with two counts of intentionally sexually touching a child under 10 years and sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 10 years.

Police said the man's employment at the swim school was previously suspended.

Mr Daniels remained in the cells while his case was heard in Manly Local Court.

His parents were in court but declined to speak to the media.

He is expected to make a bail application next week.

In a media conference, Detective Superintendent John Kerlatec said Mr Daniels' alleged victims had been brave.

"He was engaged in teaching these young girls how to swim and it's alleged that the offenses took place during those lessons," he said.

"It's alleged one of the incidents occurred inside the pool."

"We'll allege that they occurred over two separate days probably about a week and a half apart.

"The parents brought it to the attention of the swim school, who immediately suspended the instructor from teaching any further and police were called and commenced their investigation.

"I know he's been engaged on a casual basis as a swim instructor for at least two years."
