Thank you to everyone who attended, supported and donated at our Pink Ribbon breakfast, with every donation supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation, all your contributions went towards BlueFit’s total of over $3,300!

This is a fantastic result, we really believe research is the best way to prevent deaths, and improve how breast cancer is diagnosed, managed and treated.

NBCF is working towards one goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. Together we can help them get there, help us reach our goal by donating here.

Superhero Safety Week starts Monday 18th November!

Safety Week is upon us, and this year BlueFit Swimming are asking students to come dressed up as their favourite Superhero!

Safety Week is an important initiative that takes place during your regular swimming lessons. Within the lesson there will be a focus on water safety skills such as floating, survival sequences, treading water, survival strokes and basic rescue techniques.

We encourage all students to bring shorts and t-shirts to swim in during their swimming lesson. Infants are encouraged to wear a t-shirt, parents and caregivers are also encouraged to wear a shirt. This creates a real life scenario, if your child is in an accident they will be in clothes. We want to ensure your child is prepared and safe this summer.

Don’t be alarmed by the changes, these skills are simply to offer additional focus on water safety and education in a fun environment. In the end we want to provide the best possible water safety outcomes for your child. Safety week provides us with the opportunity to focus on skills which could ultimately save a child’s life.

We will also be giving out prizes for the best dressed students! We look forward to seeing our little superheros!

What is Safety Week?

Safety Week is an important initiative that takes place during your regular swimming lessons. During Safety Week students will learn various safety skills. We encourage all parents to bring clothes their child can swim in to enhance the quality of learning.

Why is Safety Week Important?

The Royal Life Saving annual drowning report sadly recorded 276 people lost their lives due to drowning in 2019. As one of Australia’s largest swim school providers, we feel BlueFit has the responsibility to our communities to deliver a service that not only emphasises the importance of learning to swim, but also the skills to be safe and aware in and around water.

Safety week provides us with the opportunity to include additional skills into the swimming program which could ultimately save a child’s life.

What do you need to bring?

All preschool and school age children need to bring shorts and t-shirts to swim in during their swimming lesson. All infants and parents or care givers need to both bring a t-shirt to wear during swimming lessons.

This is imperative as we simulate swimming in clothing and what swimming techniques could help save your child’s life.

For more information about the program contact enquiries@bluefitswimming.com.au or please give us a call on 02 4868 1967 or speak to one of our friendly staff at the centre.

Due to essential major pool plant repair works, we were required to shut our pools down for a period of 11 days commencing on Monday 12 August to Thursday 22 August 2019.

We are excited to re-open our pool area and re-commence our learn to swim program today. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience during the closure and we look forward to welcoming you back into our aquatic facilities.

On August 9th we will be partaking in CafeSmart to support StreetSmart who act to ignite positive action against the homeless. The organisation fundraises to support grassroots projects that tackle homelessness. These smaller organisations provide vital frontline services but struggle with a lack of resources, the little guys are an important part of our social safety net, and in collaboration with individuals, business and corporate partners our mission is to lend a helping hand.

CafeSmart unites the community over our favourite brew to help fund local homeless services. On August 9th hundreds of coffee roasters and cafes around Australia will partner and donate $1 from every coffee sold, and ask their customers to chip in a donation to help tackle homelessness.

So make sure you pop into Moss Vale Leisure Centre on this day to make your contribution! To learn more about how you can get involved see their website here.
