Myswim is a family run business that has been operating in the Blacktown and Smithfield areas for the past 14 years.
We recently acquired the use of the pool at George Bass School at Bass Hill. 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 two eldest children, who also teach children to swim.
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 have been working towards starting a new Centre.
Chris first started coaching in 1980 at the Doug Frost Swim School at Padstow. He coached many great swimmers including the most famous of all, Ian Thorpe. Chris was at Padstow for 20 years before leaving there to start his own successful business, with his business partner and wife Cathy.
Cathy has been actively involved in the swimming industry since 2000. Cathy has full Austswim Accreditation for teaching infants, adults, people with a disability and children of a squad level. Cathy is also well known within the swimming community for her passion in raising awareness for issues within the swimming community and has presented at the NSW ASCTA conference. Cathy is also an assessor for Austswim and has her cert iv in training and assessing.
