Kingswim Robina Centre Manager Tori, tells us what she loves about summer!
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I have worked for Kingswim for three years, (going on four), starting off at our Lutwyche Centre as a regular teacher for our learn to swim core program, advancing to infant teaching, supervising and finally advanced strokes teaching. In 2019, I was offered the position of Assistant Manager’s at both Robina and Lutwyche.
During this time I learnt a lot through observation and prior knowledge and was finally offered the Centre Manager’s Position for Kingswim Robina where the team have been working extremely hard!
Outside of work, I live in New Farm with my wonderful partner, Jesse, who I have been with for three years.
I come from a Football background and have played in the Women’s National Premier League for the last four years. Football has always been a passion of mine, I have consistently played for 12 years, training three days a week for two hours!
What is your favourite summer destination?
My favourite Summer destination would have to be either Fingal Inlet or Double Island – Fingal Inlet is good for secluded day trips or if you know how to surf. Double island is great for the family, especially if you are looking to go camping.
Where will we find you during summer?
Most likely Fingal Inlet. The surf is great, there are little huts made out of wood to keep you shaded from the warm sun, the sand is pure and its secluded away from local tourist areas so you know you can relax without having too many people around!
Do you have a favourite childhood memory of summer?
The best childhood memories of summer that I can remember were spent at Double Island Point with my Mum, Dad, brother and Uncle!
And finally, what’s your summer tip?
If I could give one summer tip it would be to have fun but make sure you stay safe in the water. Never swim alone and always make sure that you are aware of your surroundings, you may be a strong swimmer but environmental factors can play a big part when it comes to getting in trouble in the water!
