Hiya, I started swimming with Fulton Swim School when I was 11, after moving to Franklin from the Coromandel. Having grown up at the beach I spent most of my childhood in the water and have always loved swimming! I was part of surf lifesaving for 5 years and was a rookie lifeguard for the last 2 years.

I am so proud to be able to pass my passion onto the children I teach and to watch them grow as competent swimmers.
Hi my name is Jacob, I have been swimming my entire life. I was in the pool with Mum and Dad before I could even walk and went through swimming lessons during my early childhood.
