Holiday Intensives 4-8 July!

Junior SwimFit

what is swimfit?

Junior SwimFit is a casual attendance program for junior swimmers not wanting to follow a ‘true’ swim squad style training session.

The Junior SwimFit session offers 45 mins of aquatic and dryland based fitness work teamed with fun drills and all to the beat of the latest kids fitness playlist.

There is no pace clock work, no tedious swim sets,  no stroke correction and no ‘squad like’ expectation of the swimmer. These sessions are designed to meet aquatic fitness goals and to keep the swimmer ‘swim fit’, engaged and super keen to return to the next session.

To join the junior swimfit session, swimmers need to be able to swim 25 m freestyle competently (this does not need to be fast nor pretty)!

the importance of our Water Safety Program

Here’s an email we recently received highlighting the importance of our Water Safety Program.

Hi East Lakes Swim Centre,

I just want to say a huge thank you for everything you do. But in particular I want to praise your Water Safety Program.

On the Easter weekend, myself and my girls were staying at a hotel in Sydney. The hotel had a pool. Both my girls are students at your swimming school. Miss 3 is not yet confident in the pool.

Miss 7 was in the pool. Miss 3 entered the pool when my back was turned and had a drowning incident.

On entering the water, Miss 3 sunk straight to the bottom of the pool. I turned around to see just the very top inch of her head above the water. She was standing vertically on the floor of the pool, nearly completely submerged. Miss 7 realised quickly that her sister could not breathe and swam and lifted her up. She held her above the water and brought her to the side of the pool, where I lifted Miss 3 out of the pool. Miss 3 was frightened and I was very concerned. I monitored her in the coming weeks. I will never be able to erase the image of Miss 3 standing under the water from my mind. 

Miss 7 knew what to do and acted calmly and quickly.  I believe that this is a credit to your Water Safety programmes at East Lakes. Thank you so much. You really are making a difference to the lives of our children. Please always keep doing what you are doing.

K.W.
