Week 9 Club night results are up on the Club Results link on the right.

Thanks to everyone that helped in the canteen and time kept on the night. More details will be in the next news letter.

One of our parents, former Olympian and gold medalist, Jodie Henry has been showing people the range of swimwear Adidas have to offer. If you would like any further information regards the Adidas range or pricing please get in touch with Jodie directly, via email adiswimqld@gmail.com, or catch her if you see her round the club. Click this web link to view the range, but talk to Jodie direct about orders and prices.

The canteen is a continuing success, busy from the moment we open!! We have a big menu with a variety of freshly made food. There is also drinks, chips and other treats available if you want. Please remember "CASH ONLY AT THE CANTEEN"

Volunteers on the night are an absolute necessity to ensure our swimmers racing is smooth and the canteen can serve everyone. To ensure we spread the load and so people can organise themselves, we have drawn up a roster on the link below that runs through to XMAS. If you can't make it on your rostered night, please arrange to swap with another family so club nights work for everyone.

  • PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR THE ROSTER TO SEE WHEN YOU'RE ON.
  • Gates open at 5pm with racing from 5:30pm. $2 entry per family. Race registration can be done at the pool Mon-Thurs in the afternoon after 330pm.

    WELCOME to our Club!

    Dear Parents and Members

    Welcome to the 2017/2018 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, 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.
