Swimming Club will commence at The Gap State School Pool on the first Friday night after the September school holidays and runs until the Term 1 holidays of the following year.  There is a break during the Christmas school holiday period.  The season covers approximatly 18 weeks of Friday night swims.

Club night is Friday night and commences at 6:00pm for a 6.15 pm start and usually finishes around 8.00pm.

Each Friday night children swim against other children of the same ability, except on Sprint Championship or Club Championship nights or when special events are held.

Only changes to nominations for Friday night swims need to be done by 6pm Wednesday night prior to the Friday night swim.  This can be done online at the nominations page found here.

Each Friday night swimmers have the opportunity to swim all four strokes as well as the Individual Medley.  On some Friday nights throughout the season special events are held which may include  handicapped individual and relay events.

Our younger club members are encouraged to swim 25m with the assistance provided by older swimmers to promote confidence.

25m, 50m, and 100m races in each stroke will be swum as well as 100m and 200m individual medley throughout the season, with qualifying for longer distances based on times swum.
