New Season Memberships

As detailed in last weeks column, this season will see some significant changes to the structure of the Roxby Downs Swimming Club, with a new partnership with Roxby Leisure and their learn to swim program allowing all swimmers to receive the best coaching and instruction available.

The Roxby Downs Swimming Club will be focusing on “Competitive Swimming” with the “learn to swim” program being managed by Roxby Leisure who will be offering the Royal Life Swim and Survive Program.

The Roxby Downs Swimming Club, due to coach and pool lane restrictions, will only be offering 40 places this season to ensure swimmer safety and qualified coaching for members at all times.

Memberships will be taken for the new season at the next market day 18th September. This will be done in conjunction with representatives from both our swim club and Roxby Leisure. If you are unsure which service best suits your swimmers, please come along and discuss with us on the day to ensure you sign up to the best group for you.

All memberships to the Roxby Downs Swimming Club will need to be made as soon as possible, to secure your spot, using credit card to our online membership service – laptops will be available on the day to complete these transactions.

Those wishing to complete this online earlier are now able to do so through the SwimSA membership portal

Please contact if you require your username and password to log into this service or for any other assistance.
