At a time when keeping connected with loved ones is as easy as lifting your mobile phone from your pocket, it is comforting to know that those close to us really are within reach at any given moment. However, when it comes to supervising your child at our (or any) swimming pools, the concept of being within arms reach has an even greater significance.

Here, it is a matter of life and death.

Over the last few months, our lifeguards have saved the lives of several children whose parents or guardians were otherwise preoccupied on their phones – one of the recoveries occurred within arms reach of the parent, who was too busy on their phone.

Our lifeguards are an important safety feature but they DO NOT replace the close supervision of accompanying adults. A puddle of water is enough to cause an infant to drown, and as many as 20% of near-drowning survivors suffer permanent neurological disability.

We understand how easy it is to have new notifications or having the latest news at your fingertips but we urge you to remember the reason why you are where you are. It is for the sake of the loved one(s) who, at this moment are relying on you.

Keep safe and happy swimming for all of our customers!

Our Adolescent Program is for those older swimmers who are not confident in an aquatic environment through to those swimmers who are wanting to perfect their strokes.

Our program offers the opportunity for adolescents to learn to swim in an environment with their peers and is primarily swimmers aged between 13- 18 years.

We differentiate the levels between beginner, intermediate and advanced, so everyone has the opportunity to continue to learn and develop no matter their capability!

This year’s Earth Day will be on the 22nd of April and the theme is ‘Protect Our Species’.

Nature’s gifts to our planet are the millions of species that we know and love, and many more that remain to be discovered. Unfortunately, human beings at times upset the balance of nature, and as a result, the world is facing the greatest rate of extinction since the dinosaurs.

We can interpret looking after our Earth’s health by nurturing our own. Creating positive and clean environments for ourselves better our health. Whether it’s walking to work one day this week, or drinking from a reusable drink bottle or go 7 days without using a takeaway coffee cup.

Together, they all make a difference in your health as well as Earth’s!

Did you know the youngest age a child can start swimming lessons is 4 months old? Our Infants Program begins at 4 months through to 3 years, with a focus on water confidence and safety skills. Through fun and play, we nurture a lifetime of love for the water.

With a parent in the water and the knowledge of our instructors, our Aquatot level will encourage and educate both the child & parent on the basics of water safety. We aim to teach the child a love & respect for the water activities and games!
