The Moorooka Marlins Swim Club is an amateur swim club with membership available to all families of the community.
Our Club’s primary aims are not only to teach swimming but to also improve members’ techniques and fitness and promote water safety in general.
Our program aims to encourage the families of young children in the Moorooka community to take up swimming with particular importance given to families of multicultural backgrounds or those who require financial assistance.
We hold our Club nights every Friday night, excluding Christmas School Holidays, unless cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. Swimmers compete against their personal best times accumulating points towards the Aggregate Points Trophy competition awarded at the end of the season. Boys and girls swim together with events graded from slowest to fastest.
All members are encouraged to participate in the monthly Swim Club Committee meetings held at the school pool in Moorooka, on the first Monday of each month at 6:30pm, excluding school holidays. Anyone interested in joining the Marlin Subcommittee can nominate at the Moorooka State School P&C Annual General Meeting held in March each year. If you are interested outside of this time, please contact the P&C Executive Team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes to the Club’s rulebook and Charter may only be made before the start of the swim season and only under conditions which ensure adequate notice is given to members and a majority decisions obtained.
