The story of Trevor the Turtle

02 Jun 2015

Trevor is the friendly turtle that’s passionate about teaching water safety to his Rackley swim family. He loves hanging out with his friends, talking water safety, and of course, being in the water.

Trev’s story began in the 50s when his namesake Trevor Rackley was a young swimmer at Burleigh Heads. Trevor’s father was the Head Coach there and he and his family were heavily involved in the local Burleigh community. Many years later in 1998, Trevor re-opened the Burleigh Heads swim school as Rackley Swimming. 

A few years later, once Trevor had retired, his sons decided to name the Rackley Swimming mascot in his honour. 

Now, Trev the Turtle has a special place in the history and values of Rackley Swimming.
