You're Welcome whatever your level!

The club actively caters for, and supports, all levels of swimmers. Swimming levels range from "Social" to "Competitive" grade. 

For the social swimmers, a large number of swimmers attend the very popular Friday Night Club Night. Due to the efforts of dedicated parents and carers, who give willingly of their time to act as judges, marshals, time keepers and canteen staff, this night is a real family event. When setting up the weekly schedule of heat events, the club aims to match swimmers on previous result times, rather than on age on block. This method provides swimmers with a close racing experience against swimmers of similar ability and encourages future interest and participation in the sport of swimming.

For the competitive grade swimmers, the Club boasts swimmers who have attained levels from District grade swimming, right through to two National graded swimmers. The club also hosts the "Lexia Willmington 3-way meet" and participates in the "Ron Hall shield" throughout the season. Regular updates on upcoming external events are provided within this website to aid in further development, participation and results.

Welcome to our Club!

Welcome to the 2021/2022 season of the Holland Park State School Swimming Club.

This Swim Club at Holland Park State School has been running for many years and has seen some fantastic young swimmers come up through the ranks and develop in to fine athletes. Not only does the Club strive for excellence with our competitive swimmers, but also prides itself on developing confidence, participation and fostering the “have a go” attitude in all our members.

For all returning families, we look forward to another season filled with fun, excitement and achievement.

To all new members, the committee extends a warm welcome and hope that this is the beginning of a long association with our club.

Like all amateur sporting organisations, the club is run by a hard working volunteer committee and parents/carers who selflessly give up their time to foster the development of our swimmers.

Each club night, the club employs a roster system where a family will be rostered on to a particular club night and duty – whether it be Canteen, Timekeeping or helping on the BBQ, each role is important to the successful running of the Club nights. If a family is unavailable for that particular night, it is crucial that they organise to swap with someone else so we can run the night smoothly.

Finally, I would ask that all parents read the Club Handbook to ensure that everyone understands how our Club works. As a committee we would like to extend a warm welcome and look forward to your involvement in the Club.

Tom Shipsides
