Club nights are a great way to introduce swimmers to the art of racing and a great way to make new friends. Club nights are open to all swimmers from both learn to swim and squads that are capable of swimming 25m. Swimmers compete in races based on times, not age groups in a carnival format.
Our Churchie Swim Club nights are held fortnightly on Wednesday afternoons during Term 4 and Term 1 of the School year. Club nights commence at 5.00 pm and children are asked to be at the pool by 4.45 pm.
Club Night Overview
Each club night commences with a distance event, 50m for our younger swimmers and 100m for our senior swimmers. This is followed by 25m & 50m events of three different strokes.
