THE hot weather has led to training returning to Merrylands Swimming Centre.

Merrylands Amateur Swimming Club restarted training for the 2013/14 season on October 1. President Ian Wilson said Saturday mornings included races for all ages and levels.

"Parents and carers are encouraged and trained as technical officials," he said.

"Once the races are completed the club provides learn-to-swim and water safety for the community by qualified instructors.

"The club provides squad training for all ages and levels from junior to senior and those just wishing to stay fit and have fun."

Merrylands Swimming Centre was opened in 1968 and Merrylands Amateur Swimming Club was formed in the same year.

It is the largest swimming club in the Holroyd Local Government Area and had more than 140 members registered last summer.

Wilson said the club would be hosting the Swimming Australia Go Swim Fun Day on Saturday, October 26. "This is a great opportunity for people to come down … and see what swimming is all about," he said.
