ABOUT US

Menai Swim Academy was the vision of a family that has lived in the Sutherland Shire since 1982. The founder, Noel Harris, originally obtained his Bronze Medallion at Bronte Beach in 1966, which taught him how crucial the education of water safety is. When the pool opened in July 2000, we were overwhelmed with the response and support of the Sutherland Shire. Today, through further education and international experience, our vision is still alive. We proudly provide the local community with a professional Learn to Swim Centre and remain involved with local schooling and sporting communities.

MISSION STATEMENT

Saving lives today, inspiring the champions of tomorrow.
