Dear Parents and Members

Welcome to the 2016/2017 season of the Holland Park State School Swimming Club.

This Swim Club at Holland Park State School has been running for many years and has seen some fantastic young swimmers come up through the ranks and develop in to fine athletes. Not only does the Club strive for excellence with our competitive swimmers, but also prides itself on developing confidence, participation and fostering the “have a go” attitude in all our members.

For all returning families, we look forward to another season filled with fun, excitement and achievement.

To all new members, the committee extends a warm welcome and hope that this is the beginning of a long association with our club.

Through the tireless efforts and expert guidance of our Coach Phil Hughes, the Club’s competitive swimmers have gone from strength to strength over the recent years. This can be seen in our most recent results – coming from Division 4 in the 2010/11 Season to our achievement of 8th Place in Division 2 at our most recent Metropolitan meet in July 2016.

Like all amateur sporting organisations, the club is run by a hard working volunteer committee and parents/carers who selflessly give up their time to foster the development of our swimmers.

Each club night, the club employs a roster system where a family will be rostered on to a particular club night and duty – whether it be Canteen, Timekeeping or helping on the BBQ, each role is important to the successful running of the Club nights. If a family is unavailable for that particular night, it is crucial that they organise to swap with someone else so we can run the night smoothly.

Finally, I would ask that all parents read the Club Handbook to ensure that everyone understands how our Club works.

As a committee we would like to extend a warm welcome and look forward to your involvement in the Club.

Regards

Dave Grierson

President

Club Merchandise

Club Merchandise, such as Club caps / shirts / swimmers can be purchased on Club Nights.

It is expected that all swimmers wear the latest official Holland Park swimming cap and swimmers on special events such as the Ron Hall Shield.

The Club aims to supply official merchandise for very little profit margin to support its swimmers.
