  • Games for adults and kids

Invitations with full details will be sent out ahead of the event.

Winter Swim Club

Thanks to everyone who completed the survey about winter swimming at swim club a few weeks back. The results showed that too much swimming is never enough for DSC members.

So, we plan on running 4 x winter swim club meets over the winter period.

As with previous years Winter Swim Club meets are likely to be held at the Riverview College Indoor Pool on Sunday afternoons and will be held once a month from June through to September.

More details will be provided once available.

New Club Constitution

The Club committee has been reviewing our constitution – which is now a little out of date and overdue for a revamp.

David Parker has kindly done the pro bono work and drafted a new document for us.

We’ll be circulating a copy to all members ahead of the Presentation Night which will also act as an extraordinary general meeting.

Members will have the opportunity to vote on adopting the constitution at the event *.

Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday the 23rd August 2021. All members are encouraged to attend and participate.

If you are interested in joining the committee or helping out with the running of the club please feel free to contact Adrian Bell on 0424 561 831 in advance of the AGM.

More information about the proposed new constitution and the AGM will follow.

* voting on the constitution may or may not be a pre-requisite to obtaining dessert 🙂

Annual General Meeting – Mon 24 Aug 2020

Annual General Meeting

On behalf of the club committee we hope everyone has been keeping well and fit during the COVID-19 lockdown and re-opening. Let’s hope that the only new waves are water related not virus related.

It’s been great to see members swimming safely in the ocean, estuaries, backyard pools and local pools now that they’ve re-opened.

Annual General Meeting
The club’s AGM is coming up on Monday 24th August at 7: 30pm. Like a lot of other community clubs we will hold the meeting online using Microsoft Teams.

If you wish to attend please contact Tim Doolan for details via president@drummoyneswimclub.com.au.

Also, if you are interested in helping out with the running of the Club or in a committee position please contact Tim about this.

Presentation night

By now we would normally have held the club’s awards presentation night for the 2019/20 season. However, given the present situation we have decided to remove any uncertainty surrounding large gatherings and defer the award of trophies to the beginning of the 2020/21 season, expected to commence in October 2020. We will provide more details in due course.
