Parramatta Inter-Club Cup

We will take on Parramatta City and McCredie Park at Granville Swimming Centre on Saturday, 11th November. This is a great event for all our members with events from 7yrs & Under through to 50yrs & Over, and we need everyone’s help to retain the cup we won last season.

Information will be emailed to swimmers who are not registered as Full Members with our club, to explain how to register to swim at this meet. Full members can enter the meet as normal.

Club Uniforms

We have a great range of club uniforms available for sale. These can be purchased through the club’s online shop. Some items may require a special order to be placed with our suppliers, so planning orders ahead of time will allow for the items to be delivered.

If you have any questions about club uniforms please talk to the Property Officer, Margaret Edwards.

Planning your Championship races

As you will see in the Season Program we have club championship races commencing on Saturday 28th October 2023 (week 4). A tight season sees a number of Championship double up days, so it is vital that you plan your swims well ahead to ensure you qualify for the Championships you wish to compete in. How do you do this? Follow these quick tips to plan your qualifying swims:

  • Review the Season Program to see the date Championship swims are held;
  • Plan your qualifying swim for a Championship at least 2 weeks before the Championship is held as this provides you with leeway in case you miss a week, are disqualified in the race etc;
  • For example the first Championship is the 200m Individual Medley on Saturday 28th October (week 4). Plan to swim your qualifying swim for this Championship in Week 2;
  • Likewise look at the following weeks Championships and try and include these in your earlier swim plans. The more Championships you swim qualifying races for at the start of the season the less likely you are to miss qualifying.

The entry cost for each 100m and 200m Championship swim (Age & Open) will increase to $2 per entry. This increase reflects the fact that swimmers obtain points for both their Age & Open Championships from their one swim.

Masters NSW SC Championships

We have a team of 6 swimmers representing our club at the Masters NSW SC Championships being held ay Woy Woy this weekend.

Good luck to Varant Jambazian, Peter Johnston, Kylee Murray, Timothy Oliver, Alison Sakurovs & Ian Wilson. May the whale be with you all. 

SNSW Qualifying Meet

Joseph Assi will swim 3 events at the SNSW Qualifying Meet at SOPAC this weekend. May the whale be with you too Joseph
