    Fabulous trainers great team spirit

    30-11-2017 by Robyn Sierla

    My 10 yo daughter fell into the 'don't like sport' category until we found Emeralds. Now at 11 she is keen to spend six hours a week training for the competitive stream. This is sport disguised as fun but also builds strength, fitness, flexibility, commitment and team spirit. Emeralds has a lovely culture too with highly committed, creative and competent teachers providing lots of encouragement.

    It's an OLYMPIC SPORT!

    06-04-2016 by Amie Thompson

    If you're curious to see the sport at its top level in action, watch it at the upcoming Olympic Games in RIO! Australia will be sending a team. Sydney Emeralds is one of the longest lasting clubs in Australia and continues to thrive and produce smiling athletes! It was my first club which gave me my solid base of training. I am now on the national team and will NEVER forget all the memorable lessons I learnt from the emeralds!

    Fabulous team sport

    05-04-2016 by Michelle

    An amazing team sport that ticks all the boxes. My daughter loves the water and has so much fun. The club encourage teamwork amongst the girls, stamina and fitness. For the smaller ones watching the bigger girls perform is something to aspire to. Great sport for fitness and self esteem. Sydney emerald are a welcoming club to be part of. Highly recommend.

    Great team sport

    This is just such a great sport which combines a mixture of elements. Teamwork. Movement and music

    Be part of an amazing and friendly community!

    05-04-2016 by Coach Susy

    We have recently built a big base of beginners and pre-competitive groups with lots of enthusiastic and lovely girls between the ages of 5-8, 8-12 and above 12. The girls love performing in a group and they enjoy being part of the team. Apart from that they learn how to build confidence and dignity which are very important as well. This sport doesn't only provide with consistent exercise but as a team sport also teaches them respect and how to develop relationships. I noticed that not only the girls but the parents (actually the whole family) also become part of the community and enjoy a nice BBQ on the beach together at Christmas time for instance. I love teaching at this club not because it has a sound strategy for how to develop as a club but most importantly because we discuss with every girl individually about their goals and expectations and provide with personal development path if they want to be competitive for example. And we are just having so much fun all the time this is an amazing group of people, the girls, parents and my coach fellows all together.

    This sport needs strength as well as flexibility. It also helps built team spirit as you train with other's your level as well as creating endless inside jokes and having a great time. I have done for 5 years and if you want to combine music, dance and swimming this is the sport. Come for a trial and recommend it to anyone you think will be interested.

    Wanna try dancing in the water?

    18-11-2014 by

    Do any of you even know what synchronised swimming is? It's time to find out! I've done it for about five years, and so far no sport has has surpassed it in my opinion. If you enjoy either music, swimming or dancing, come and try out! Everybody in the club is tightly-knit and very good friends. I, myself have made many friends, from whom I'm inseparable from. So come, and I'm sure you'll have more fun than you'll imagine!

    What a fantastic and different this sport is!

    18-11-2014 by

    Synchronised swimming is quickly growing in popularity in Australia. It gives girls and women of all ages an opportunity to do something fun and quite artistic, improve and work on their fitness, make friends and lots more.. Even represent Australia at the Olympics if one aspires to take such path. The club supports all, whether one wants to be a recreational swimmer or take it to the elite athlete level. There are a number of enthusiastic, highly qualified and experienced Sydney Emeralds coaches ready for you! So why don't YOU give it a try?

    Awesome Sport! :)

    18-11-2014 by Jun Yi Ong

    My favourite hobbies since young were swimming and dance. Synchronised swimming is the best combination of both the strength of swimming and the elegance of dance. I am glad that I had the opportunity of trying out this sport 8 years ago as an adult and thanks to Sydney Emeralds, I have become addicted to this awesome sport! :)

    Fantastic sport!

    11-11-2014 by Jill Gallagher

    My daughter has been doing synchro for three years now, and absolutely loves it. It is a great combination of dancing and swimming, both of which she also loves. In the time she has been doing it her self-confidence has improved, as well as her fitness and pride in how she conducts herself. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Great place to train!

    01-09-2014 by John Pantaleo

    A great way to learn a very effective self defense/martial art in a safe and friendly environment. Rachael is a very qualified and experienced martial artist and teaches in the spirit of "budo". The time I have spent training at White Wolf Dojo, Rachael has helped me grow as a person and a martial artist. Without Rachael I certainly don't believe I would be the martial artist I am today and I look forward to continuing my training into the future at White Wolf Dojo.

    White Wolf Dojo

    09-04-2014 by Tania

    I enrolled our 8 year old into White Wolf Dojo (WWD) after experiencing another local martial arts school and we wanted a more well rounded and grounded dojo to teach our child not only the physical aspects of a martial art, but the philosophical facets also. WWD is consistent in their teachings, whether it be from the hands-on Sensei Rachael or her senior student assistants. As our child progresses through the levels of his martial arts, so too has WWD set up the support networks for our son as he transitions from boyhood to manhood. Our children need healthy role models who they can learn from, look up to, and aspire to be. I highly recommend White Wolf Dojo to any child who wants to learn a new life skill in a fun and nurturing environment.

    The kids have fun learning.

    07-04-2014 by Leigh

    Rachael's classes great. The kids are so busy having fun, they don't realise how much they are actually learning. Highly recommend.

    My 6 year old twins have been attending these classes for nearly 12 months and love them. Rachel Sensei and the team are skilled, passionate about what they do, caring and engaged with the children. Classes are small to allow individual attention. Aside from the skills, the children are taught personal values such as respect, self control and determination to succeed. It is priceless seeing their little faces when they pass a belt grading. i would highly recommend these classes to any new parent.

    Great for girls

    07-04-2014 by Georgia

    Our three daughters have been members of White Wolf Dojo since its inception. We love the focus on values such as respect for self and others, a positive attitude, responsibility and doing one's best, which are discussed at each lesson. Sensei Rachael is fantastic with the kids as are the other helpers. The regular gradings give the kids a sense of pride in their progress. We highly recommend White Wolf Dojo!

    I've trained with Rachael on and off for over 8 years. I've seen her teach all sorts of children of various ages. She has a unique blend of patience, presence and experience that helps her get the best from groups of kids both little ones and those bigger.

    Great with Kids

    07-04-2014 by Direk

    Rachael's dojo is highly energetic and lots of fun for kids. With the help of Joe and Gretchen the classes are well organised, well run and moves along at a great pace. There is a good balance of emphasis on martial skills appropriate for the age group, and physical games that keep the children amused while at the same time developing their body control skills. My 6-yr old son is usually hesitant at joining new activities but he has really taken to attending White Wolf. I credit this to the excellent positive-reinforcement techniques that Rachael and her team always uses when teaching the kids. Highly recommended (since my son joined, four of his school mates have followed suit!).

    Jasmine's 8th Birthday party

    05-08-2015 by Crystal

    The booking process was so easy - even when I kept changing the details Sarah was so professional and nice and kept working it out for us. On the day Victoria arrived early and set-up and got ready so we could welcome the guests and get everyone organised and when they started I was totally shocked as it went really quite! Giggles here and there, but the girls were so amazed at the choice of beads (and later my daughter said she was really happy that the beads looked like the ones on the jewellery at the shops and not baby beads!) Jasmine was so happy! After they were finished the girls were so proud they showed them off with a little show and Victoria gave them all a certificate and little bag with a gift and then all of a sudden Victoria was packed up and saying good-bye and out the door as I got the cake ready! I couldn't believe how easy it was... I really recommend Kids Jewellery Parties to anyone wanting a great easy party.

    Angelica's Party was the Most Memorable EVER!

    20-08-2014 by Jessica Gallo

    Sarah and her team were so professional. They turned up on time and quietly set-up and then got all the girls together and in a very fun way showed them how to create their very own designs - which were amazing because of the surprisingly high quality of the hundreds of beads. Each guest made 2 pieces that they LOVED and they even had a mini fashion parade at the end which was So Adorable. Sarah and her team gave the girls a certificate and a surprise gift, which we didn't expect. I would recommend Kids Jewellery Parties to anyone and will consider having them again in the future.
