Our club is for all school-age kids who wish to develop their swimming abilities in a team environment of friendly competition-style racing in all four strokes, at different distances, and also fun racing for the littlies - we hold Club Nights weekly every Friday evenings from 6:00pm till around 8pm. (excluding school holidays).
The new season has begun, but newcomers will be welcomed at any stage - you can even come along for a try out for up to three club night occasions - you only pay a $5 family subscription per club night. Decide whether your child / children like it and want to join our club. Find out more on our Join page. We ask that a parent accompanies any children, as we promote a family-friendly environment of support and encouragement, and trust that parents would want to share an interest in their child's sport.
There is hot food available at our evenings, and we hold occasional raffles for various prizes through the season. We also stage fundraising events such as our annual 'Aquathon' sponsored swim where the kids swim as many laps as they can over a designated half-hour. There is also our wind-down party preceding Christmas holidays where santa visits, and also an end-of-season easter party where chocolate prizes are given out. We have also recently introduced a combined camping long weekend and awards prizegiving Break-Up at Camp Barrabadeen on Lake Tinaroo during May, where all members are invited to come along, either camping over the three days, or to day visit on the sunday for the Prizegiving. Watersports and other outdoor activities are part of the itinerary, and Stingrays communal BBQs are quite renowned!
