Annual fees for the 2017/18 season:
- Swimmer $150
- Non-swimmer $45
- Reduced family rates are also available.
It is a requirement of membership for swimmers under the age of 18, to have at least one parent/guardian registered as a non-swim member of the club.
Membership entitles swimmers to compete at PLC Sydney Swim Club race nights, typically held on a Friday night. The dates for 2018/19 will be displayed at the pool noticeboard and will also be communicated at the start of each term by the club Race Secretary. Membership also allows swimmers to join any Swimming NSW and Swimming Australia swim meets
For further details on how to join the PLC Sydney Swim Club, please contact the club registrar James Crisp firstname.lastname@example.org
The club holds short course racing at the PLC School JD Oates Aquatic Centre. Races are typically held on Friday nights starting at 5:30 pm sharp and are scheduled throughout the year.
The list of scheduled club nights for 2018/19 can be found here (link to a PDF file TBC). The next event is Friday 2 November 2018.
All families are expected to help with the running of club races. The club relies on the support of its members to run a successful club night especially with timekeeping. A committee member can show you how to time keep if you’ve never done it before. It’s a fun way to support our swimmers, meet people and make friends.
Friday night club racing is ONLY available to members of the PLC Sydney Swim Club. Prospective new members may be allowed to attend one Friday night race prior to joining the Club.
The cost of swimming at a Friday night race is $5 per event. There is no pool entry fee. Swimmers are expected to enter a minimum of three and a maximum of four events for each Friday night race.
Entries are currently submitted through www.anotherpb.com which requires registration (for free) with AnotherPB.
PLC Sydney Swim Club uniform comprises of a club T Shirt (red or long sleeve grey) matched with any plain black shorts or any plain black tracksuit pants. It is essential that the club uniform is to be worn when representing the club at swim meets. In particular, the uniform is to be worn on entering the swim meet and on the medal dais. Only the new PLC Sydney Swim Club race cap is to be worn at meets. PLC training caps or PLC IGGSA caps etc are not to be worn at external meets.
The uniform is available for purchase on club race nights. Payment is either cash or card (2% surcharge applies).
Coaches Kevin and Nicole usually keep a stash of racing caps for sale if caps are needed before club race nights. Nicole will usually have a couple to purchase at targeted meets in case of emergency.
