Friday Club Nights
Club nights are held each fortnight in Terms 4 and 1.The main goal for all swimmers is to record personal best times (PBs). Club nights will give swimmers an opportunity to establish PBs over 25m (9years and under), and 50m, 100m, 200m, (10years and over) in each stroke and the individual medley. Times are recorded, with points allocated for participation, equalling personal best times and improvement.
Parent help is always needed on club nights for time keeping, helping with the bbq and recording. If you can help out, please come along, your assistance is appreciated!
