Junior squads are free for our junior members (6yo upwards including parents) with your swim club membership. Squads are held at Drummoyne Pool in Lanes 1 & 2 every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 6am-7am run by our experienced members Phil, Lynette and Will.
Junior squads are open to children who can swim at least 30 metres freestyle.
It’s a great way for juniors to keep fit, train for our Saturday morning meets and excel at school carnivals.
Thank you to those who attended the Drummoyne Swimming Club AGM on 26th August 2019. It was a chance to reflect on the successful season we had, plan the new season and appoint the Committee. Please welcome our two new Committee members Shellee and Adrian.
The Committee for the 2019-2020 season is as follows:
Annette Jamieson Kate Romaniuk Shellee Ossen
Chief Learn to Swim Instructor
Committee Member (including News and Social Media)
Committee Member (including Publicity, Marketing)
Committee Member (including Legal, Insurance, Timers)
Committee Member (including Club Registrar)
We also thank Lynette Brown for offering to retain her services as external Auditor.
The 2018-19 was a very successful season for the club. There were many highlights which contributed to the success, not least which were made possible by the many special volunteers this club is so fortunate to have.
The season kicked off with swimmers enjoying the brand new starting blocks.
Secondly, the Battle of the Bay saw the Club at its very best, with our wonderful volunteers putting on a spectacular well organised carnival. Who could forget James Magnussen diving in for a 23 second lap and giving the juniors a thrill of a lifetime in the relay!
Thirdly, the end of year Awards night was a big hit, combining dinner, trophy presentations and special guest speakers to celebrate a great season.
We look forward to another successful season ahead.
The 2019-20 season of Drummoyne Swimming Club will commence on Saturday 5th October 2019 from 7.30am – 10.30am.
Please feel free to invite your friends along for a free trial to the best place to be on Saturday mornings in Sydney!
Memberships for next season will open in the next few weeks. Current members will receive an invite from Swimming NSW to renew their membership on their brand new system called Swim Central.
Unfortunately we have been obliged to increase our membership fees this year as a direct result of increases in the affiliation fees we pay to Swimming NSW and Swimming Metro North West. Optus has also ceased sponsorship of their Junior Dolphin programme, which previously allowed children 7 and under to join free.
The membership fee for swimmers 8 and under will be $62.50 and $100 for older swimmers. We accept the $100 NSW Active Kids to pay for your children’s membership. We also offer concessional fees for families with four or more members, second claim members and squad swimmers. Full details of all membership fees and concessions for the 2019-20 season will be published here on our website shortly.
Once Drummoyne Pool opens on 1 September, Members are welcome to train on Mondays to Fridays in Lanes 1 & 2 between 5.30am – 7.30am.
Senior Squad sessions will be held on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays starting on Monday 2 September 2019. Junior Squad sessions will commence on Tuesdays and Thursdays shortly after the season start. Stay posted for further details.
These lanes are reserved exclusively for Swim Club patrons so let’s take advantage of them and start your day with a few laps enjoying harbourside views!
Our final Winter Swim Meet is on Sunday 18th August 2019 at the Gartian Centre Indoor Pool, St Ignatius’ College, Riverview.
Bring your family and friends to try it out and build up your fitness for the summer season. Swimming is for all ages and abilities, with races managed by our computerised handicapping and timing system.
