1500m Open Championships – 26th March

Next Saturday is the last morning of club races and it culminates with the 1500m Open Championships and a breakfast at the conclusion of races.

A reminder that races commence at 6.30am (not 7.00am) so we really need everyone at the pool earlier on the morning to assist with set up, timekeeping etc, even if your family members are not swimming the 1500m event as we will need to have timekeepers for all lanes with swimmers.

Swimming NSW Senior Metropolitan Championships

This weekend our club is being represented by three swimmers at the SNSW Senior Metropolitan Championships being held at SOPAC. Good luck to Vanessa Ozols, Alison Sakurovs & Matthew Vicic for your swims and may the whale be with you all

Perpetual Trophy Return

As the season draws to a conclusion we ask that you return any perpetual trophies you have to the club room prior to the end of March so the trophies can be prepared for the upcoming Annual Presentation.

Club Uniforms

As colder weather returns you may be seeking a parka to help stay warm during training. We do not take or place orders for these and suggest you contact AquaShop directly at ( or visit their shop at 15 St John’s Avenue, Gordon.
