Swimming success!

Thank you to Amanda, one of our swim Mum’s, for the below feedback – we love seeing how lessons translate to success in the pool (and in LIFE!). Please contact us with your stories! julie@nepeanswim.com.au “I just wanted to touch base to share Grace’s swimming results with a few of her teachers. She swam last […]

Stickers and Progression charts help your child become a Super Swimmer!

Children love ongoing encouragement, which is where our progression charts come in! Children’s swimming skills are celebrated as they are achieved with a sticker for their progression chart – when all stickers are obtained within the level, your child will advance to the next level! All children are different, and some skills are harder to […]

Wahu Swimmer of the Month – NAC

Congratulations to Marlissa, our WAHU Swimmer of the Month for February 2020 at Nepean Aquatic Centre! Reason for nomination? Marlissa is in our Achievers Program, and always gives 100% when she swims. She is not afraid to try new things when asked, and she has come a long way since starting lessons. Marlissa makes the […]

Adult group swimming lessons

So your children are learning to swim, but can you? Fear, never having the opportunity to learn, being raised in another country where swimming is not intrinsically linked to the culture and lifestyle, or embarrassment at not being able to swim should not hold you back from learning to swim in your adult years. It […]

Swim for Fitness and Health – for Life!

We love to hear your swim stories, and those which demonstrate that habits can be broken and changed at any age are particularly inspirational. We visited regular lap swimmer Gary Crane, to get an update on his health nearly a year after he started swimming and just after his first ocean swim! February 2020: After […]

School Swimming Carnivals

Is your child’s school swimming carnival coming up soon? I remember my school carnival days very fondly, so I was very surprised when attending my own children’s swimming carnivals to see how participation rates have declined over the years – in my day, most children were able to swim 50 metres and were eager to […]

Aquatic Exercise – February is the time to get FIT!

Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to get fit? Often people fail by February as we try the same old forms of exercise and get bored, or go to hard too soon and get injured, and ultimately fail. So, maybe it’s time to try something new? The benefits of training in water for both […]

New Year’s Water Safety Resolutions

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Maybe this year, rather than the usual “eat and drink less, go to the gym more, pay off post Xmas debt” promises, we could all commit to some Water Safety resolutions? 5 people drowned in less than 24 hours on New Year’s Day last year across Australia – please, let’s do better […]

Summer is here

Summer is finally here, which means lots of hot days, swimming, and fun! However, last summer was horrific in terms of drowning statistics with 51 people drowning in the first 37 days of summer, and 5 people drowning in less than 24 hours on New Year’s Day 2019. Simply put, it was shocking, and is […]
