Swimskool owner debunks swim club claims

SWIMSKOOL owner Vivienne Peate has rejected claims local swimmers are disadvantaged due to inadequate training facilities in Mount Gambier.

Her comments follow a story printed in The Border Watch on August 3, which quoted Mount Gambier Swimming Club coach Julie Moran.

The swimming coach said while swim clubs were grateful to train at Swimskool during winter, swimmers were unable to practice all of the necessary skills required to compete at swim meets.

Ms Moran welcomed the proposed multi-million dollar sports and recreation centre – with early concept plans featuring a 25 metre indoor heated pool – given lane space at Swimskool was “limited”.
