Achieve The Olympic Dream, School Champion Or Ultimate Fitness


 

Our squad program has pathways to bring out the best in every swimmer - whether you want to achieve the Olympic dream, school champion or ultimate fitness!
At Ignite Health & Fitness we offer two swimming streams; competitive and fitness squads. Our competitive squads are targeted towards swimmers that want to compete at high levels and include Junior, Competitive and Performance squads.
Our Swimfit squad is designed for swimmers that want to swim solely for fitness and socialisation.

 

  Head Swimming Coach:
Nicholas Rispoli 

 

Our Head Swimming Coach Nicholas Rispoli is passionate about helping swimmers of all levels achieve their goals. Nicholas swam at a national level for 10 consecutive in his swimming career including a period under scholarship at the Elite Athlete Program at Sydney University where he gained a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise & Sport Science.

His favourite quote is “Anyone can dream, champions get out of bed and chase those dreams.” Nicholas’ coaching philosophy is based around solid foundations of technique paired with hard work and dedication.

He believes in making every metre count, not counting the metres. Nicholas enjoys keeping fit and working hard himself, leading the squad team by example.

The Squad Values of Courage, Initiative and Teamwork are fundamentals the squad program revolves around at Ignite Mounties.
