Season Championship Ribbons

Whilst we have not been able to hold championship presentations during the season we do have championship ribbons available for any swimmers who would like to receive them for their 1st, 2nd or 3rd placings in the championship events.
If you would like to receive your championship ribbons please let Margaret know and she will make arrangements for them to be provided to you.

COVID-19 Safety Plan & Protocols

Health updates that affect our club members can be found here.
Thank you to everyone for your assistance in complying with the protocols required during the season. Your assistance has allowed the club to hold club races every week without any COVID-19 impacts. Thank You!

School Meet Results

Congratulations to Unish Shrestha who is the 11 Year Boys Age Champion for the ASISSA Carnival. Unish came 1st in Breast, 2nd in Free & Back and will compete in all 4 strokes at the upcoming CIS Carnival.

Season Finale – BBQ Breakfast next week

Well it is hard to believe that the season is coming to an end next week ☹. Despite lingering COVID-19 protocols and a La Nina summer weather event that tested our patience we have been able to hold a full season of club races and Championships.

Our successful Learn to Swim program concludes today. A great big thank you to everyone (the LTS Committee & Coordinator, instructors & helpers) involved in providing this important program to our next generation.

Next Saturday sees the final week of club races. Good luck to all swimmers as they swim to finalise their season results in the graded races, championships, relay & handicap events. We will be holding a breakfast bbq at the conclusion of club races, so please stay around to enjoy the breakfast as we look back at another fun season at Merrylands Swimming Centre.
