The Full Story
It's always been swimming for us!
Myswim is a family run business that has been operating for the past 22 years in the Blacktown, Smithfield, Bass Hill and now Revesby areas.
Having a family of their own Cathy and Chris are aware of how important it is to protect children in and around water, which is why they are so passionate and dedicated to teaching children of all ages and abilities how to swim. Their passion has rubbed off on their daughters, who are actively involved in the swim school from teaching children to swim, to helping with the day to day operations.
They began Chris Myers Swim School, in 2000 at Blacktown Aquatic Centre. In 2005 they purchased a swim centre at Smithfield and also changed their business name to Myswim. They conducted lessons there until they sold the business in 2012. In 2013 they concluded their operations at Blacktown and started in 2015 at Bass Hill and now their new adventure in 2021 at Revesby.
