3. Hand sanitizer will be available and any parent/caregiver or spectator is more than welcome to wear a mask within the facility.

4. Please keep your time within the facility as short as possible, come ready to swim and then get changed at home after your swim.

Showers will be available but again where possible do so at home after your swim to help limit time inside the facility.

Swim School Manager Sarah Blackburn

Management Team

Sarah Blackburn, Daniel Ryan and Phillip Ryan are all responsible for the day to day running of the business

The pool complex was designed and built especially for TEACHING AND COACHING, and we believe we run one of the best teaching and coaching organisations in the world.

We have 2 teaching pools and both pools are well heated 

Water Quality

As well as daily testing a minimum of 3x per day. Our pools are independently tested every month and the results are always displayed in the reception area.

As we are a privately owned complex and mainly used as a teaching facility we don't have a large number of public swimmers attending the facility. Which means we can keep our water quality controlled and in the best possible condition for you our clients.
