We have National Scholarship athletes preparing for international competitions, through to former athletes continuing to train for fitness and wellbeing. One thing they all have in common, they all love the sport and see no reason why you cannot swim well into your 20’s and remain competitive.
We encourage our swimmers from Level 5 as well as their swimming parents to to become members of the SUSC. Race meets are run monthly. Our philosophy is to help to each swimmer strive for their personal best, and better prepare them for school carnivals, Area, State and National Championships and the Speedo Sprint Series.
Our Open and Varsity swimmers often attend these meets and provide excellent mentoring and inspiration for our developing swimmers.
Club meets are a low key, fun way to introduce swimmers to racing and provide opportunity for new friendships to be made.
