We would like to welcome all new and existing members and their families to the 2016 - 2017 swimming season.
We encourage all members to become involved in club events throughout the season with our 'Gold Rush Sprint Meet' a major fundraising event for our club. Club nights are a great way to start and for swimmers this is an opportunity to put in place what you learn in training with the objective of setting personal goals and having fun. We offer 2 free come and try nights for new swimmers before signing up. Swimming Qld introduced free membership for any child 7 years and under called 'Dolphins' and this is a good way of getting your child started in swimming. They must be able to swim in good style 12.5m in both freestyle and backstroke. For parents this is a great chance to ask those questions you may have about swimming while enjoying the friendly family atmosphere Friday club night provides.
The success of our club cannot be achieved without parent volunteers so please consider helping throughout the season from time keeping at club nights to gate keepers at our annual Gold Rush Sprint Meet. All offers of support will benefit our club and most importantly our swimmers.
Education about our club and swimming as a sport is important and we ask that all members read our club's handbook. We encourage members to ask questions if they are unsure about any aspect of club activities or swimming - this is the best way to gain knowledge and get the most out of your involvement in the sport of swimming. We have considerable experience amongst the club and committee and they are all happy to welcome and assist you. A list of committee members is located in the handbook and on this website.
We wish all swimmers a successful and enjoyable season.
