Retired Sydney swimming coach Dick Caine has been hit with more charges as police continue investigating the alleged historical sexual abuse of his former students.

Strike Force Coco first charged the 76-year-old in June after he was arrested at his Condell Park home, for allegedly abusing a teenage girl at a swim school at Carss Park in Sydney's south in the 1970s.

He has since been charged with various offences, including carnal knowledge of a girl aged between 10 and 17, and assaulting a female and committing an act of indecency on a person aged between 14 and 16.

Caine appeared at Downing Centre Local Court on Thursday and was charged with an additional four counts of assaulting a female and committing an act of indecency, as well as two counts of sexual assault.

The new charges relate to alleged sexual offences committed in the early 1980s against a girl - who was aged between 13 and 15 years - while she was under his authority as a swimming coach.

Caine remains before the courts and has now been charged with 27 offences.

Investigations under Strike Force Coco are ongoing.
