Swim Club

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.

Club Rules

The club rules are set out in our Marlins Handbook 2017-2018.

All members are encouraged to participate in the monthly Swim Club Committee meetings held at the pool at the Moorooka State School each month at 5.30pm, excluding school holidays. The Club Committee is elected at the final swim club meeting of the seasons held in the week after the Club Championships.

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.
