Our tagline "It’s all about balance" has a few meanings:-
We believe in a balanced lifestyle for all - spiritually, emotionally and physically.
We believe that children need balance in their lives between academics, sports & other extra-curricular activities, and play.
Balance is the most important skill in swimming
• without it - Struggle !!!
• with it - Easy !!!

For Adults who participate in Masters, open-water and/or Triathlons and wish to improve their Freestyle beyond recognition we recommend a "Total Immersion" Freestyle Weekend Workshop.
