Joni Harding announced that the Infinity Swim Academy was awarded with Flagship Centre Status for outstanding delivery of the Learn to Swim Program in Ireland.

"The Infinity Swim Academy, in partnership with Swim Ireland, has been awarded the prestigious Flagship Centre status for their outstanding commitment and contribution to helping children Learn to Swim in the Ulster Region.

As part of Swim Ireland’s commitment to ‘Get Ireland Swimming’, a new Learn to Swim program was introduced in June 2017, launched at the Camlough facility in September 2017. The facility exceeded all expectations in terms of the number of swimmers, the quality and standard of delivery of its lessons, and their commitment to a positive customer experience. Learning to Swim in South Down has never been better

Swim Ireland’s Education Business Manager Joni Harding said, “The amazing group of individuals who brought Infinity to Camlough, are, as their name suggests, completely without limits.

Their dedication and passion for swimming has gifted the south Down area with infinite opportunities in aquatics, through the delivery of Swim Ireland’s Learn to Swim program.

The teachers at Infinity have fully embraced the principles of the Swim Ireland Program with children developing fundamental aquatic skills through structured play – you can be sure the children who come here have fun on their journey of learning to swim. With every child receiving a passport and stickers, recognizing effort as well as achievement, they also have a keepsake as a reminder of learning this vital life skill, that they can share with friends and family. Young or old, fast or slow, toe dippers or head dunkers, Infinity is committed to getting everyone swimming.

The Infinity and Swim Ireland teams have worked hard at developing a new Open Water Module of the Learn to Swim Program. Infinity was the first pool in Ireland to go live with this module

The Infinity team includes Sean McDonnell, Martin O’Hanlon, Stephen Grimley, Pádraig Mallon, Milo McCourt, Jacqueline McClelland, Jack Boyle, Kieran McClelland, and Olive Conroy.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
