Club Sessions

Monday Night - South Lake Leisure Centre

The Club meets every Monday night (except Public Holidays) at South Lake Leisure Centre from 7.00pm to 8.30pm.

A monthly swimming program is prepared in advance by the Club Coach & Club Captain and usually involves the following:

  • 2 Coaching Sessions* a month:
    • Session 1 is fitness based
    • Session 2 concentrates more on skills/techniques
  • 1 Aerobics Session+ a month (400m+ swims)
  • 1 Combined Coaching & Sprints Session a month


* The coaching sessions are usually taken by a qualified coach at no extra charge to members.

+ The aerobics session is aimed at allowing members the chance to accumulate points for themselves and the Club as part of the annual Masters Swimming National Aerobics Program now known as Endurance 1000.

Saturday Morning - Coogee Beach

Club members keen for an open water swim in the ocean also meet at Coogee Beach Surf Life Saving Club every Saturday morning at 7.30am all year round.

The Winter sessions over the last 4 years have proven really popular with an average of 15-20 swimmers taking a refreshing dip - so come along and try it out. (Hot showers available in the Club's changerooms afterwards).

In Summer, many members also incorporate jogging and cycling before the swim and, with several members committing each year to a Rottnest Channel Swim training program, the start time and distances tend to vary from week to week - although a core group will still meet up to start their swim at 7.30am.

The beauty of swimming at Coogee Beach is that swimmers can choose their distances - maybe 750m, 1,500m or, for those in more serious training, 3km or longer...

Inter Club Swim Meets

Masters Swimming WA co-ordinates an annual calendar of Inter Club Meets (Livelighter Challenges), where several local clubs participate in events. These are based in local pools and each one is organised by a local Masters Swimming affiliated club.

Our Club is usually involved in 1 or 2 of these Livelighter Challenges in each year. Dates and venues will be confirmed by Grant or Peter at the start of each year, but the main event we aim to be well represented in each year is the Golden Groper State Relays at HBF Stadium, always great fun to take part in.

This year , the Club has nominated to take part in 3 meets:

  • Golden Groper State Relay Event - August 2016
  • Mandurah LLC - June 2016
  • Fremantle LLC - October 2016

 

Results of all Masters Swimming Inter Club Meets can be found here.

Open Water Swimming

There is also an annual calendar of Open Water Swims (“OWS”) co-ordinated by Masters Swimming WA (the Livelighter Masters OWS Series). Calendars containing a full listing of events held each year can be found here.

Many of our members take part in several of these open water events. The Club encourages members to enter one of more of these events held at local beaches.

Links to results recorded for Club members who have participated in these OWS events are on the Results page.
