YMCA Swim School renamed YMCA Mariners Aquatic Centre

12 Jun 2018 - Media ReleasesRecreation

YMCA Swim School at Mariners Centre of Excellence will now be known as YMCA Mariners Aquatic Centre.

The new name more accurately and succinctly recognises the partnership between YMCA NSW and the Central Coast Mariners Football Club, explained Centre Manager Troy Barringer.

“YMCA Mariners Aquatic Centre is a more concise name which better reflects our strong partnership with the Mariners club and the quality of the programs and facilities on offer at the state-of-the-art centre used by the players as well as the broader community,” Mr Barringer said.  

“Besides the new name, it’s business as usual and we’d encourage people to get involved in our children’s or adults’ swimming classes taught by nationally-accredited instructors, do some laps in your own time or join a squad to take it up a notch.

“We also offer Swimability – a vital swimming and water safety program that provides the opportunity for people with a disability to swim and enjoy the water with specialised support and resources.”

YMCA NSW is an approved provider of the NSW Government’s Active Kids program where each school-aged child’s parents can get $100 back for the cost of swimming lessons.
