Why Swimathon matters to me - and many others

The power of swimming and water safety should never be underestimated.  It can be many things to many people from different walks of life and of all abilities.  In a land surrounded by water, the one thing it is to every Australian is a vital life skill.

Many of us take the swimming lessons we received as children for granted. But now older and hopefully wiser, we can stop and think about the barriers people with disabilities face when seeking to learn how to swim.

YMCA NSW exits out of Raymond Terrace but remains committed to regional NSW recreation and fitness

YMCA NSW is committed to serving regional NSW. It is a passion for us to encourage healthier, happier and more connected communities in the isolated and rural areas of NSW. In fact over half our Recreation Centres are based outside of the Sydney Metropolitan area. We have YMCA centres and services in Broken Hill, Central Coast Region, Taree and Batemans Bay. We’ve also recently renewed our management contracts in the Northern NSW region of Bellingen and for the Broken Hill Regional Aquatic Centre in Far West NSW.

We understand your disappointment that YMCA NSW will be exiting from Raymond Terrace, as we too share this disappointment. Please know that this has been a difficult decision for us to make. We have enjoyed serving the Raymond Terrace community over the past seven years.
