Port Augusta Regional Qualifying Event

Congratulations to all swimmers who participated in the Regional Qualifying event on the weekend – especially to Angus who competed at his first big carnival and did PB’s in every race.

Also congratulations to the following swimmers who achieved qualifying times and will now be competing at the Country Championships in January
  • Matthew L.
  • Julia W.
  • Caitlin A.
We encourage as many of our families as possible to attend the Superfish event which is detailed below and goes hand in hand with the Country Championships.

Welcome to our new Senior Coach

I would like to welcome Kelly S. to the team. Kelly comes from WA and brings with her a wealth of swimming knowledge and has already jumped into her coaching role head first. She is working with our senior swimmers currently but is keen to work across all groups. We hope that you make Kelly feel welcome to the town and the club and pop in to meet her and say Hi.


All swimmers under the age of 13 are eligible to compete at the Superfish carnival on the 13th January. This allows swimmers the opportunity to swim at a major meet in preparation of future country championships meets. These meets are amazing and all swimmers will of course be encouraged to stay on for the entire meet and support the club. The club will be supporting accommodation and travel costs for this event and it would be great to see a strong group of swimmers participate

Please review the list below of upcoming carnivals for the season. Contact Magriet Van Niekerk for any further information – 0448 688 964
