Owner Anita Killmier has a passion for swimming as a life long sport so unlike many other squad programmes, H2O not only focuses on developing younger swimmers, it also focuses on promoting and developing swimming among adults. H2O can cater to all adult swimmers irrespective of age, ability and goals.
Anita has been both pioneer and leader in the field of adult swimming and is well regarded as one of Australia's best teacher and coach of adults. We have programs to suit the beginner right through to elite pool, open water, surf, triathlon and World Masters competitors. We offer both private lessons and group training squads.
Some swimmers train specifically for an array of competitive activities ranging from the Open Water swims such as the Lorne Pier-to-Pub; Triathlons and pool competitions. In order to swim competitively, they belong to Powerpoints Masters Swimming Club which offers additional swimming times to its members at MSAC.. Powerpoints Masters has been allied with H2O for nearly 30 years and provides a wonderful range of social activities for like-minded people.
H2O offers various sessions throughout the week that are held at the Prahran Aquatic Centre (PAC) pool all year round.
Advanced swimmers can train Monday to Friday at 5.45am, with the option of 75 minutes up to 105 minutes in length.
Intermediate swimmers train at PAC on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays at 7.30-8.30am. This is a combination of stroke technique, skill development and fitness training.
Novices learn the strokes and learn how to train, often moving into the intermediate group when ready. Sessions are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8.30am to 9.30am.
For those unable to make these times we now offer a Stroke correction group on Sunday at Lauriston Girls School.
The combination of both Powerpoints and H2O squad training options, also offers greater flexibility in choosing times to suit busy swimmers.
If racing is not your thing, you can still swim with H2O. Our new venue The Swim Studio in East Malvern is perfect for adults wanting to learn to swim or fast track technique. We specialise in both private and group lessons with great results and experienced teachers who are accomplished swimmers themselves.
We have recently begun small group classes for Beginners on Sunday at Lauriston Girls' School in Armadale.
