History

Swan Hills Swimming Club Inc. was established in 1985 and our community club room is located inside the recently renovated aquatic centre at Swan Park Recreation & Leisure Centre in Midvale.

Swan Hills attracts members from many areas including the Perth metropolitan area, northern districts, the Swan Valley, eastern Hills, Darling Range and country regions. In 2005 we celebrated our 20th Anniversary.

The Club has since nurtured an outstanding group of State, National and International swimmers including Paralympians, and aims to continue this proud tradition of developing new talent.

The Club’s team culture and strength is in part, due to a commitment to encourage swimmers from a young age, at all skill levels, through to personal best performances in their chosen endeavors.

Volunteers

There is a wonderful, hard-working group of Club Volunteers that cannot be thanked enough for their time and effort, and we hope that they, in turn, find it a rewarding experience.

The Committee is committed to recognising the contribution made by the many members, both parents and swimmers, who assist the Club and local swimming community in a variety of ways. Each month in the newsletter we thank and acknowledge a worthy volunteer who is recognised as 'Volunteer of the Month'.

Charter

Club activities are designed to encourage the development of happy, healthy individuals, who are confident, focused and self-motivated.

Our aim is to create a fun, safe, family environment for swimmers at every skill phase, regardless of aptitude or ability and ensure they are recognised for their individual achievements.

We endeavor to nurture and develop athletes, dedicated to achieving improved fitness and performance levels, within a supportive team culture.

We actively encourage members to strive for excellence, develop an attitude to achieve, focus on improvements in Personal Best times and the attainment of personal goals.
