The Swim Academy is now at Mt Gravatt East too!

You may have heard that The Swim Academy has joined forces with Sam Riley Swim Schools to staff and deliver the Dolphin 2 and squad programs at the Mt Gravatt East pool.  We are delighted to have this opportunity to build upon the great work done at the Sam Riley Swim School. 

Purpose built in conjunction with the Brisbane City Council, the facility boasts a six lane 25 m pool, which heated year round plus an indoor learn to swim pool.  The centre is situated within the grounds of the Mt Gravatt East State School at the intersection of Newham and Wecker Roads Mt Gravatt.
