The Seal Swim Club took time out to work on their team bonding by cleaning up the Suva Olympic Pool which they consider their second home.

The club started off with a swim class followed by the cleanup campaign.

Club captain Adi Misi Naivalu said not only was it a way to bring the new and old swimmers together but also to show their appreciation to Suva City Council.

“The Olympic Pool is like our home because we spend most of our time here, we train in the morning and in the afternoons and also hold swim classes here,” Naivalu said.

“We have a lot of new swimmers who have joined the club and this team building exercise is to get everyone to bond with each other.

“This will benefit them in future because this will prepare them to be better swimmers and individuals.

“We also team them to respect others in the pool and outside.

“This is also our way of showing SCC our gratitude for their support and their help because this is the pool that brings everyone in this club together.”

Head Coach for the Seals Swim Club Nina Naivalu revived the club last month after five years.

Not only is the team passionate about swimming but also teaching younger ones, who have an interest in swimming, how to swim.

“Aside from swimming, we also hold swim classes for kids and teach them survival skills,” Nina said.

“There are a lot of drowning cases in the country and I feel that as a swim club we should play our part and help.”
