Junior Excellence Carnival Results
Congratulations to the six swimmers who ventured to Adelaide last weekend for their first carnival of the season. Alex Lowe, Catalina Moraga, Billy Weltner, Matthew Lowe, Florencia Moraga and Julia Weltner all competed at this event and achieved many PBs which is a great achievement considering they have only completed around ten hours training this season.

Pool Passes & Access
Reminder – Swim Club Membership includes your pool pass for this season. All members must see the pool kiosk personnel to get their membership cards and swipe the card each day upon entering the pool.

Swimmers under the age of 10 must have a parent or carer over the age of 18 present at all times during training.

Training Timetable Change
Due to coaching shortages for our junior squads, training days have been amended to Thursday and Friday until further notice.

Training times are now as follows:

  • Stingrays, Sharks & Swordfish Squads: Monday to Friday 5.30pm - 7.30pm
  • Dolphins 1: Thursday & Friday 4.00pm – 4.45pm
  • Dolphins 2: Thursday & Friday 4.45pm – 5.30pm
Training times are listed on our Google Calendar which you can subscribe to or view on our website under "Training Timetable". Keep an eye on this calendar as it will list any changes, cancellations etc.

Junior Squad in Jeopardy - COACHES REQUIRED URGENTLY
Due to work and personal commitments of our current coaches, we are now seeking two junior squad coaches to enable the season to continue. Training will be provided by the club and you only need to commit to 1 ½ hours per week.

Please contact any of the committee or current coaches if you are interested. All our coaches are parents who made the commitment to ensure the club continues. You do not need to be a fantastic swimmer to coach!

Broken Hill Swimming Carnival
For any interested swimmers, there is a group from the club heading to the Broken Hill Swimming Carnival on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd November. If you would like to come along to this event, please contact Tanya (nominations@roxbyswimclub.com) to get your nominations in this week.

2009/2010 Carnivals
If you are interested in travelling to carnivals this year please find below a summary of events supported by the club.

All families planning on competing will require a SwimmingSA Handbook available from Christine (info@roxbyswimclub.com).

Don't forget: closing dates for these events are typically three or four weeks before the carnival, so if you want to nominate for a carnival, speak to your coach ASAP.
