What parents say

I wanted to take a minute to thank the team at the Blackwood Fitness Swim School, in particular a special thank you to Kerry who is just amazing with the kids! There’s nothing better than seeing my 1-year-olds face light up, and the excitement shown by both home and his cousin who also attends, every time they get in the pool. Both kids have improved immensely since starting only a few months ago, and are much more confident in the water, which is very important to me as a family that spends a lot of time either at the beech or the river. I’d recommend Kerry at Blackwood Fitness Swim School to all of my family and friends!
