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!

Naomi Findlay had a fantastic turn out at the Swim For Schools fundraiser at Lambton Swimming Pool last week with a HUGE final figure raised of $10,963.50

The event had over 100 people in attendance watching 4 teams compete for the $300 prize money. We had 2 teams tie for first place, “Newy Paint Crew” and “Freestylist” which both teams kindly donated back to the foundation.

Thank you and congratulations to all who contributed!

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!
