What a great start to the 2016/17 season. The atmosphere at the pool on Friday night was brilliant. What was great to see was the mix of the old and new. Lots of faces that I have seen over the past few seasons plus all the new families that have come to be part of our wonderful club. A big welcome to all the new families.
Thank you to all that volunteered on the night with out you our club doesn’t run.
Now the swimming, what a fantastic start to a season we had! There were a number of children that on night one have stepped it up from last year with some PB’s and have qualified for some 50 metre events on the first night. Now we have added the 100 metres into the schedule some were doing 50 metres and 100 metres for the first time
Reminder to all families that there are some inter club swim meets coming up that all children can go to (minimum requirement is to be able to swim 25 metres). So keep an ear and an eye out for them.
See you all this Friday.

When are Club nights?
Club nights are held Friday evenings during school terms 4 & 1, with swimming starting at 6:15pm and concluding approximately 8.30 pm. Swimmers only need to be able to swim 12.5 metres to join in and are encouraged to start participating as soon as they feel comfortable.
It is a fun, informal family night with a well-run canteen and a raffle drawn during the evening. Interclub carnivals are held during the season. The swim season ends with club championships where swimmers compete for trophies.
What age do children have to be to join the club?
There is no age requirement, though children need to be able to swim 12.5m unaided. For young children who may be a little nervous (or for parents who are a bit unsure how their child will go) experienced squad swimmers will be on hand in the pool to assist and encourage if required.
