Members are welcome to train on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings in lanes 1 & 2. These lanes are reserved exclusively for Swim Club patrons between 5.30am and 7.30am.

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.

Swim Club starts 5th October 2019

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.

Any queries about memberships please contact our Registrar, Michael Donnellan at registrar@drummoyneswimclub.com.au.

Further information on the new season program will be published on our website shortly and will be similar to our 2018-19 season.
