How did it all begin ?
Once Kim Stoney had little children running around she realised that it was at least an hour’s drive each way to take her children to the closest year-round swimming lessons.
Kim is a solid advocate of the value of swimming as a “life skill”. This is founded by the combination of her own upbringing where swimming was always incorporated, a mother who was not only a very keen swimmer herself, but also an AustSwim instructor, and now, as an adult and parent, the concern of children accessing dams, rivers and creeks without the skill of swimming being second nature to them.
It was quickly realised that Mansfield needed a year-round aquatic facility to primarily provide both learn-to-swim programs and aqua aerobics, as well as other aquatic uses.
Kim has four young children; Tilly, Jack, Bella and Sam.
