Try swimming in winter

COLD winter weather may be setting in but the Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre is toasty warm and open for business.

The centre features a 25m four-lane heated indoor pool, making it the perfect location for water safety this winter.

The Bubbles Learn to Swim program at the Murwillumbah facility includes an Adult Learn to Swim course and a parents and babies class.

Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre duty manager Dwain Fitzsimmons said even during winter it’s important to be aware of water safety.

“Swimming lessons are important because you can learn how to save lives,” Mr Fitzsimmons said.

“All adults and children should be aware of water safety; people drown at the beach and in backyard pools so it’s important to know how to swim.

“Our outdoor centre is closed over winter but our indoor centre is open and heated, swimming is great for your health and its very social.”

Prior to enrolling in classes children can be given a free assessment to ensure they are placed in the right level.
