We are a family owned and operated business, with our head office, Baildon Group, based on the Gold Coast, with swimming centres on the Gold Coast and Brisbane. We create all of our own programs, train our team and are fully hands-on in the swim schools.
Born and bread into swimming, we remain highly active within the industry as guest speakers, trainers and consultants. Founded by Andrew Baildon OLY , Olympian and International Swimming Champion, with Karen Baildon (née Karen Wenden), a top state level swimmer and daughter of the legendary dual Olympic Swimming Gold Medalist, World Record Holder and Commonwealth Champion Michael Wenden.
Karen and Andrew began teaching Drowning Prevention and ‘Learn to Swim’ programs when Andrew retired from competitive swimming, after 10 years on Australian Swimming Teams. Together, their vast experience and wealth of knowledge gives them a rare insight into all aspects of swimming development and the expertise to develop training programs at the very forefront of the industry.
With a family of their own, their passion for their sport continues, striving to provide the very best aquatic facilities for children and adults, passing on their skills to save lives and inspire.
