Latest Newsletter - 27 October

Club Camp
As many of you would know we are holding a camp this weekend for up to 20 of our senior swimmers. This is designed to be an intensive training weekend both on land, in the pool and in the classroom. The aim is for swimmers to be able to increase their fitness, skill and understanding of technique to prepare them for the fast approaching summer carnival season.

Time Trials / Halloween Movie Night (Junior Squads Included)
All club swimmers and families are invited to attend the first club Time Trial Competition on Saturday 30th October from 4.00pm. Swimmers will be able to compete in up to four events which will then be followed by a family BBQ dinner and outdoor Halloween movie and free swimming.

All swimmers from Dolphins 1 to Swordfish will compete in a variety of events from 25 metre kickboard events to 200m Individual Medley. 12 Volunteers are required for time keeping and 2 or more for BBQ Duties. This is a great night out for the whole family, and a good opportunity to get to know everyone. All swimmers must be accompanied by an adult and an entry fee of $10 per person or $30 per family has been set for the evening.

Pool Access Reminder
We have been advised by Roxby Leisure that as of next week, all members must have a valid pool swipe card and swipe each time they access the pool. These passes are organised through Roxby Leisure and old cards can be programmed again and reused. Members not producing a card will not be granted access to 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.

Account Payment Option
Please note that fees can now be paid online from our website using Paymate. Anyone with outstanding accounts can now pay by credit card online. Please email payments@roxbyswimclub.com if you have any problems setting this up.
