We Swim

Whether it’s Leichhardt Aquatic Centre for squad session, open water skills session or chilled laps there’s always one thing in common – you’ll always find us in the coffee shop afterwards and a group to go wherever you want to take a dip

From the ocean to the local pool….

Swimming is such a varied discipline, and can be off putting for those with less experience. We welcome everyone and have sessions and relaxed ocean meet ups to suit all levels of ability.

Ocean Swimming

Most Saturdays you’ll find a group doing Bold and Beautiful ocean swim at Manly and most other days you’ll find someone who will join for an adventure wherever your heart desires. Occasionally we link up with OceanFit and do ocean swimming skills sessions.

Lap Swimming

We have dedicated swim squads on a Monday evening at Leichhardt Aquatic Centre – and there are multiple lanes so whether you’re emulating Emma McKeon or just starting out there’s a space for everyone.

Jump In and Lose Yourself

Swimming can be such a mindful pursuit with the water around you and the rhythmic breathing. Coupled with the come one, come all approach at Balance you’re sure to find something to float your boat!

Building the Balance

You’ve all heard the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child” – well for many of us, Balance Triathlon Club is that village and we’re all that child trying to make their way in the world. Whatever our goals, challenges or needs we are there to support each other through everything. Check out the video!

"Balance is a supportive and friendly community of like-minded people, who love to race as much as we love a social run or night at the pub. I don’t think you could find a better bunch of triathletes to train with and make friends with!"
