Junior Training Commences

This Tuesday 14th October sees the commencement of all junior squads training. We ask that all swimmers in a junior squad attend at 4.30pm Tuesday and Thursday the first week so that coaches can assess swimmers’ abilities and place into appropriate groups for the season.

Relay for Life

The club’s three registered relay for life teams are ready for this Saturday’s event. If you want to be involved there are still a few places available – so contact Phillipa ASAP if you are interested. You can come down for a few hours and support the teams, or stay the night – all club members welcome.

Raffle tickets need to be returned before Saturday as both raffles will be drawn on the night. Get your tickets to Wendy Lowe or contact her on 0409002576. All unreturned tickets will be added to family accounts.
