MSW Area LC Championships

The Metro South West Area LC Championships were held last weekend at SOPAC. Our team of 9 swimmers (Joseph Assi, Laura-Belle Casey, Alison Sakurovs, Jay Shrestha, Lisa Shrestha, Daniel Vicic, Matthew Vicic, Leo Zhu & Lillian Zhu) contested 29 individual events and ended with 22 new personal best times, 4 finalists and 1 bronze medal (Laura-Belle).

Congratulations to everyone who swam. A full report is here.

Whales Challenge # 1

Today is the first of the three Whales Challenges for the season. Swimmers have been divided into two teams (Maroon “Turner” Team and White “Emery” team”) and these teams are available on the club website. Make sure to wear your club cap in your team colour while competing to get points for your team.

Members receive a club cap as part of their membership. If you have not received your cap this year, you can collect one from Margaret Edwards in your team colour. Check what team you are in here.

Last year saw the White team take the 1st challenge, but a strong performance by the Maroon team in the 2nd and 3rd challenges saw them win the series 2-1, avenging the 3-0 clean sweep by the White team in the previous season. So which team will triumph this year?

An IM Skins event will also be held as part of the Whales Challenge where the top 8 swimmers from the 200m Individual Medley Championships will compete in a knockout format.

Championship races

The first of our Club Championship races will be held this morning. This is the 200 metres Individual Medley for 10 years to Seniors & Veterans Age groups. All swimmers entered in these Championship races will swim together in an Open event, with the results split into ages to determine the Age Championship results.

These are the first races swum in the morning, so we ask that everyone is at the pool before 7.00am to assist in getting races underway on time.

Next week (4th November) we have two Championships held during the morning, 100 metres Freestyle & 100 metres Breaststroke. The 100 metres Freestyle Championships will be the first events swum and the 100 metres Breaststroke will be held towards the middle of the morning.

Pool Entry for Squad Training

A reminder that club members receive discounted pool entry when participating in club activities, including Squad Training. All swimmers must pay pool entry when attending these activities. Spectators attending Squad Training receive free entry, but only if they are spectating swimmers in the squad. If they are swimming in the public areas or spectating non-squad members, the normal pool entry fees apply.

Pool Staff may ask club members to show their membership card when paying their pool entry or purchasing a Club Member Pass. Your membership card can be accessed from Swim Central following these instructions.
