Congratulations to Jack Slater, who competed in the National Age Championships in Brisbane in April 2008.
Jack qualified and competed in the 100 metre breast stroke.
We are very proud that Jack continues to swim with our Club, inspiring other members to rise to his achievements.
“2007 was my first year at Drummoyne Swimming Club. My children and I were made very welcome from day one. I like the way its casualness allows the youngest members to compete regardless of their levels, thus making it a good venue for the whole family. We are sure to be back”. Nicola Griffin Parker
