Points for swimmers

The Club has a reputation of being a well behaved, polite and supportive Club, can you please instill to your swimmer(s) the following that MUST be followed;

  • The Club expects all swimmers to be well behaved
  • Please ensure you bring along NEW club t-shirts and wear them, club hats *2, goggles *2, costumes *2, shorts to keep warm and poolside shoes to keep feet warmer and save the calf muscles!
  • Please ensure you wear Club attire and hats at all meets 
  • Don't forget to bring water with you too.
  • Also bring snacks, as per the Club Handbook (last page or at Club Handbook) there are things you should bring, sweets are not on the list laugh
  • Please be polite, helpful, positive and support your team members
  • Listen and do what our coaches and volunteers ask you to do
  • Never leave poolside or the group without informing a volunteer or coach
  • During the sessions all swimmers must stay with the group, most centres do not allow swimmers in the gallery area
  • When you are asked to go to the marshaling area please ensure you take your hat & goggles
  • If you are unsure, ask, there is never a wrong or silly question
  • Prior to leaving at the end of the meet, ensure the area you have been sitting is clean and as they found it 
  • Finally the Club has a reputation for being the loudest and greatest singers, so please encourage your swimmers to have fun and swim as fast as they can, but more importantly, ENJOY THEMSELVES


Points for parents

  • Please ensure that you arrive in plenty of time to pick up your swimmer(s)
  • If you are going to be late, please TEXT ??? and let him know - ???
