Aims & Objectives

  • To be a top, professional and successful Club
  • To look the best
  • To appeal to others as a great club to belong to
  • To create an environment which engenders the right attitudes to competition and other competitors in the sport of swimming
  • To have great team spirit and club pride: a legacy to continue on into the future
  • To ensure that the family as a whole is catered for, thereby encouraging all family members to become active participants in the sport of swimming
  • To promote and market the sport of swimming

Social Activities

The Fleurieu Swimming Club is probably one of the most socially orientated clubs in the state. The club builds into its program a positive and well-balanced social aspect aiming to:

  • actualise the overall aims and objectives of the club, that is, a family orientated swimming club;
  • promote member participation in decision-making that affects the overall running of the club (ie through membership);
  • raise funds to buy equipment for the club and give financial support towards the travel fund (set up to assist swimmers and officials to attend major swimming events, eg Nationals);
  • to have fun.

Some examples of social activities the club has held in the past are Chinese New Year Dinner; Quiz Night; Family Picnics; Christmas Family Day;  Annual General Meeting and Trophy Presentation Evening (with the club supplying supper and pizza); and participation of the whole club at a few predetermined metropolitan or country swimming carnivals during the year.

The club also runs a 4-5 day training camp away from Adelaide between the winter and summer seasons.

Competitive Swimming

The club attempts to be represented at all levels of competition provided by both the Metropolitan and Country Clubs, and Swimming SA (from State and National Level). Events are detailed on the SwimmingSA website and in the yearly SwimmingSA Events Handbook (available from the Club Secretary).

The Swimming Australia's Athlete Pathway outlines how a swimmer can progress through their swimming career by gradually moving through the various age and development squad programs.

Competitive Swimming at Open Carnivals

Club members can attend any carnival in the Swimming SA region. Members usually discuss with each other what carnivals they are going to, so they can meet each other there and sit together as a club.

Club members can also swim in interstate meets, however they need to seek approval from SwimmingSA through the Fleurieu Swimming Club Committee.

Officiating at swim meets

Swimming requires all Clubs provide an allocated number of officials per event. The number of officials is determined on the number of nominations. Officiating and time keeping is one of the mandatory requirements for being part of an SA swimming club, not just the Fleurieu SC, and we are grateful for your assistance and participation. 
What does this entail?

Club Championships

The Club runs its own championships for all competitively registered Fleurieu swimmers every year. The program is advertised in the club newsletter, website, facebook page, and on club notice boards (located at Sherriffs Road Swimming Centre).
Annual and perpetual trophies are presented at an Awards Night, often part of the Annual General Meeting.

Junior Swim Clinics

Junior Swim Clinics are run by the club (regularly in the winter season) and are designed to introduce swimmers and their families to the competitive side of swimming whilst at the same time having some fun and polishing skills. They also give new club members the opportunity to practice racing - starts, dives, turns and finishes - and get together as a club.

A Uniformed Club = Club pride and team spiritswimming_cap

The club promotes the concept of a uniformed club and believes this is important for club pride and team spirit.

Fleurieu Swimming Club colours are blue, yellow, black and white. From September 2016, an updated logo and uniform protocols were established. 

Club caps (training style pictured) can be ordered via the Uniform Committee member, and uniform items are often on display at club events when possible.

Membership

Registration (and membership renewal) is an online process through Swimming SA's ClubsOnline, including the completion of a membership form.

Membership fees are made up of three components: National Swimming Australia fee, a State Swimming SA fee, and a Fleurieu Swimming Club fee.

Note that Swimming SA requires that swimmers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian join as a member in either a swimming or Associate role.

Club Membership Fees

Fees for the current season are available upon request to the Club Registrar:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
