Loreto Normanhurst enhances swimming options

Loreto Normanhurst enhances swimming options
August 12, 2019

Loreto Normanhurst, an independent, Catholic day and boarding school for girls in the northern suburbs of Sydney, has enhanced its swimming options with the renovation of its starting blocks and the appointment of an Australian World Champion Head Swimming Coach.

With the school looking for a solution to the swimming pool’s old block tops, International Quadratics/Pierce Pool Supplies were able to equip Loreto Normanhurst Swimming’s squads with state-of-the-art starting blocks with a moveable track - the S.R.Smith Retro 650 Platform Top - TrueTread and TrackStart.

Loreto Normanhurst Swimming opened on 1st July this year and appointed former Australian World Champion, Bobby Hurley, as Head Swimming Coach. Hurley brings a wealth of coaching experience to Loreto Normanhurst Swimming, having been involved in the provision and development of swimming programs to Olympic level swimmers (gold medalists), as well as National, State and Age group swimmers. 

Hurley, 2012 Short Course World Champion in the 50m Backstroke and former World Record holder in that event, began his coaching career in 2017, leading South Africa’s Chad le Clos and Cameron van der Burgh to gold and bronze medals, respectively, at the 2017 FINA World Championships in Hungary.

Loreto Normanhurst Swimming welcomes swimmers of all ages, offering three streams of swimming programs - learn to swim, stroke development and fitness - and has also seen the formation of the Loreto Normanhurst Swimming Club. The Club will provide a competitive swimming pathway for students and swimmers within the local community, beginning at the development and junior level, all the way through to state, national and high performance.
