Four more charges have been laid against a former swim coach after two more alleged victims came forward to police.

Paul Douglas Frost, 44, of Syania is now facing a total 61 charges for the alleged sexual assault of 13 male alleged victims under the age of 16 at the Doug Frost Swim School at Padstow between 1997 and 2009.

All of the complainants are former swim students of the accused.

Frost was handed the new charges of aggravated indecent assault and inciting indecent acts at Bankstown Local Court last Wednesday.

Within the 61 charges, Frost is accused of touching a number of his victims over and under their swimwear, swimming naked with one of his victims, providing one of the boys with pornographic material and alcohol, and forcing a number of his victims to touch one another indecently. Police allege Frost also orally raped three of the victims, who were between the age of 12 and 15 at the time.

Police say Mr Frost was working at the Doug Frost Swim School part-time at the time of the assaults before the swim school was deregistered in 2012.

Mr Frost's father Doug was Thorpe's swimming coach during the time of the alleged assaults. Doug Frost, who founded the swim school in 1978, was a coach on the 1998 Commonwealth Games team and at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.

There is no suggestion that either Thorpe or Doug Frost were involved or knew about any wrongdoing.

The accused's wife, who works as a national food manager for IKEA, provided written testimony stating she was in "shock and utter disbelief" at the charges against her "loving and caring husband".

Ms Frost said their 10-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter had been left traumatised after their father was arrested "in front of them as they were getting ready to leave for school".
