With the winter season upon us, it becomes a little more difficult to get out of the house. However, swimming is a sport you can do all year round, and everyone can participate, especially when we have a heated indoor pool!

Here are our top 4 reasons why you and the family should hit up Moss Vale Aquatic Centre:
  1. Swimming is one of the few sports you can do throughout your lifetime
  2. It does not require lots of special equipment and gear, all you really need is a swimsuit
  3. It creates a reason to get together— a good way to socialise with your family
  4. Did you know that swimming can boost your immune system? When cells in the body regularly get blood and oxygen, they function better

So what are you waiting for, grab your togs and let’s go!

  2. Grab a kickboard with one hand and perform one-arm freestyle with the freehand for 100m (alternating arms every 25m)
  3. Move to your back, and do 2 laps of survival backstroke
  4. Grab a kick-board or hold torpedo on your back and kick for 100m
  5. Do 200m of backstroke aiming to do 50m under 40 seconds
