MISSION

Our objectives are to preserve and improve the life of people all ages in and around our community by teaching them to swim and exercise in a disciplined manner in order to maintain overall physical and mental health.

WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?

As the pool is completely indoors and heated, there will always be lessons, regardless of the weather. During extreme weather conditions or thunder or lightning, swimming videos may be shown or swimming techniques may be taught on land. With regards to lightning and thunder, the Newcastle weather changes so rapidly, that we cannot tell beforehand whether we will be going into the pool or not. Only at lesson time such a decision can be made.
