Don't miss these events in the 2017-18 swim season!

We welcome all families to join our club.  Club Nights are held every Friday night during school terms 1 and 4.  We also host special events during the season to provide opportunities to help our swimmers improve their skills, enhance their enjoyment of swimming and experience success.  Success does not necessarily mean winning.  At our Club, effort, team spirit and small individual improvements are also celebrated.
