The End of Cumberland

There has been much discussion and debate over the past two years as Swimming NSW has undergone a process of reviewing and re-organising the current Metropolitan District (Area) Associations and their boundaries.
This process has culminated in what will effectively signal the end of the Cumberland Area in its current form in May this year.

Swimming Cumberland will change name to Swimming Metro South West on May 8th with the following Clubs from the old Cumberland Area being the Founding Members:
Atlantis Macquarie Fields Penrith
Blacktown City McCredie Park Penrith RSL
Camden Merrylands Prairiewood
Campbelltown Mount Annan Ripples St Mary's
Holsworthy Mounties Swimfit Macarthur
Inswim Myswim Toongabbie
Liverpool Narellan All Stars Wenden
Macarthur Indoor Nepean Wentworthville RSL

They will be joined by two Clubs from the old Western Suburbs Area:
Bankstown Sports Revesby Workers

The remaining six clubs in the north of the current Cumberland Area, these being Hawkesbury, Riverstone, Riverstone Dolphins, Swimwest, Windsor, Wizards will join the existing Castlereagh Area clubs, and become known as Swimming Metro North West.

There is a competition open to everyone in the new Metro South West Area, to come up with a new logo for the Area. Competition will finish on 17th April 2008, at General Meeting for a final decision at AGM. Feel free to enter this competition and make this new emblem the best in NSW.

Throughout the history of the Cumberland Area, our club has had a number of Age Champions, Champions, Medalists, Finalists and Record Holders and has made a valuable contribution to the success of the area's relay teams, squads and administration.
The 8th May will mark the end of an era for swimming in NSW however it will also signal the start of a new chapter with the formation of Metro South West.
