About Stacy

My name is Stacy Gower and I have been a swimmer all my life. Since 2007, I have had the pleasure of teaching thousands of children to swim and am passionate about teaching water safety and survival swimming. This passion developed as a result of watching babies and children who, after taking years of swimming lessons, would panic and sink when they were out of their depth. That led me to realize that teaching survival swimming can help to lower the drowning rate in the under 6 age group in Perth, Australia.

I founded Waterwise Swim School, Perth as a safe place to teach a curriculum of safety and survival swimming before formal strokes are introduced. Children learn various ways of dealing with adversity in the water and are equipped with the life-saving survival swimming skills they might need should an unexpected incident occur around a pool or other body of water. In Perth we have many rivers, lakes and amazing beaches that are great places to enjoy swimming but also pose a threat to little ones who are unskilled.

If you have a pool, or are often around water as many families in Perth, Western Australia are, it makes sense to enroll your children in a program that will give them a lifelong skill and enable them to love the water at an early age. Call or email today to get started!
