JUMP! South Morang’s Master Stroke at AUSTSWIM Awards


JUMP! Swim Schools South Morang was recognised by AUSTSWIM, the national body for the teaching of swimming and water safety for its outstanding contribution to aquatic education and water safety at the Victorian Awards of Excellence, held on Sunday May 21 at the Methodist Ladies’ College, Kew.


Owner Sonam Sabharwal says,

“Elevating JUMP! Swim Schools South Morang to be an AUSTSWIM Recognised Swim Centre is testament to the success of our Prepare, Instruct and Praise teaching philosophy. We weave this through every lesson we teach.

“JUMP! South Morang is 100% committed to water safety education for our little swimmers including children with special needs and for their parents. And getting the water safety message out to our local community is just so important. Every month we conduct safety talks at local childcare centre and community groups, and educate parents and children on how they can make safe choices around water and learn to swim and survive.”

As parents of two-year-old daughter Kimay, the Sabharwals said it was important to offer a service that allowed children the chance to an early start in quality a learn to swim program.

 “For us it’s about serving the community at large. It’s so important for kids to be knowledgeable around water and experience a quality learn to swim program.

“We recognised there was no point-of-difference in learn to swim in our community, kids were just a number and there was no personal touch.

“The JUMP! model allows us, as a boutique facility, to create a one-on-one personal experience for all our little swimmers. Every staff member at JUMP!S outh Morang knows every child’s name and swimming level. Mums and Dads just love seeing little faces light up when we recognise and address their little ones. Celebrating achievement throughout each child’s adventure through water reinforces the child’s confidence and swimming ability.”

Parents are getting right behind South Morang’s specialty swimming facility for children, which opened in August 2016 and now has over 315 little swimmers. Sonam said enrolment numbers reaffirm the need for a private, fun and specialised swimming facility for children.

JUMP! Swim Schools South Morang is located at 4/314 Mcdonalds Road.
