Swim Club Fees & Pool Passes
We have now signed a contract with Roxby Leisure for this season and have negotiated to include Pool Passes with your Swim Club membership. The club has decided to keep fees equivalent to last season’s fees despite the Swimming SA fee increases.

Families that have already registered will receive an account from the club treasurer for the difference in fees paid to date and the new fees including the pool pass. Families yet to register will pay the adjusted fee amount through the Swimming SA registration process

Please Note – Swim Club members DO NOT need to purchase a season pool pass.

JX Carnival – Nominations Closing
All nominations for the JX Carnival need to be into Tanya today – Thursday 1st October. Please contact to register your interest.

Senior Squad – Holiday Training Sessions
Training for Senior Squad Swimmers will be held over the school holidays excluding the Monday Public Holiday. Training Times are Monday – Thursday 5.30pm – 6.30pm

Come and Try Day
Tuesday 13th October will be this season’s Come and Try day. Any interested swimmers may attend this session to see what swim club is all about and those swimmers joining for the season will be assigned a training squad. Training will start at 4.00pm for all swimmers and a BBQ dinner will be supplied at the end of training and free swimming so that families can meet the coaches and committee and ask any questions about the upcoming season.
