Senior Squad Camp
Thankyou to all the parents and helpers for making our club camp such a success. We had 18 swimmers attend this last weekend and from all accounts there was some great training and skill development and a lot of fun too. Stay tuned for the coaches' synchronised swimming routine photos…… not to be missed.

A big thankyou to...
  • Roxby Downs Bakery for keeping our swimmers fed
  • Petra Noble for giving a talk on drugs and nutrition
  • Cowell Electric for loaning us their underwater camera.
  • Michael and his staff at Roxby Leisure for all their assistance and great aerobic sessions.

Time Trials
Approximately 40 swimmers attended our Time Trial on Saturday night with many personal best (Time Traveller Awards) swum. It was great to see so many of the junior squad and their families in attendance. Results will be available on the club’s website in the coming days.
