Swimming has been one of Brooklyn’s most supported and enjoyable sports. Brooklyn was always known as the best swimming school in Pretoria and we are working very hard to restore our swimming team to its former reputation.
Swimming is not only an individual sport, but also a team sport. This low impact sport promotes discipline, full body work out, fitness and a healthy mind. Structures are going to be put into place to help non-swimmer become swimmers and good swimmers, become excellent swimmers. Many of our team swimmers go for private training. This we encourage so that the learners can become the best swimmers they can be. We encourage all parents to help their children become water safe.
Swimming is a social sport and can do a lot for a child’s self- esteem. We swim during the 1st and 4th terms. Each class has a day on which they have sport, as part of our physical education curriculum. Learners can’t wait for the season to start. So become part of the best, become a Brooklyn swimmer.
