Queensland’s newest learn to swim program

A brand new Swim School will “hatch” in November at Canterbury.

We will shortly open our state of the art aquatic and tennis centre, featuring an exciting “Tiny Taipans” learn to swim school. The facility will offer easy and plentiful parking and very bright and modern facilities, including a 10 lane 50m pool and a learn to swim pool, both heated for year round swimmer comfort.

The Tiny Taipans Swim School will be run by a team of quality instructors, led by one of Australia’s best learn to swim coaches, Mr Daniel Blackborrow.

Daniel comes to Canterbury with a wealth of swim experience, in large learn to swim schools in Brisbane and Melbourne and in overseeing not only state and nationally ranked swimmers but also beginner and development squads. He has developed elite swimming programs for local, state and national squads, gaining medal success at national and international level. Daniel is himself an accomplished athlete, still holding top-10 rank Junior times in his favourite stroke, backstroke.

The Tiny Taipans learn to swim programs will include classes for babies, preschool and school aged children. We will also have the Taipans Club swimming, for stroke development, squad and high-performance swimming.

Soon after the commencement of learn to swim, there will be community swimming and fitness classes also offered, so that all members of any age from the wider community can enjoy this great facility.

Alongside swimming, the centre also has eight tennis courts, for tennis lessons and club tennis, run by another very experienced sports professional who is well known around Brisbane, Mr James Rapkins.

“This is a much-anticipated exciting addition to our already impressive Sports Precinct facilities.” Principal Mr Daniel Walker said. “We look forward to welcoming Canterbury families but also the greater Logan community to join our club, take swimming and tennis lessons, or just use the pool and courts for social swim or game.”
