Albany Swim Club is a thriving swimming club that trains at the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre (ALAC) all year round. Our goal is to help our swimmers reach their full potential by supporting them to reach their individual goals.
At Albany Swim Club, we seek to foster a supportive environment for swimmers by:
Promoting health and well-being
Allowing swimmers to proceed at their own pace
Fostering team building and squad development
To be transparent and accountable with funding and membership fees
To promote swimming within the community
To sustain the club with appropriate fundraising and value-adding activities
To be seen as a good community citizen associated with health and sport
We also commit to actively competing in Swimming WA Regional and Metropolitan competitions.
Albany Swim Club is proudly a Safe Sport Club. More information about keeping our sport safe can be found on the Swimming Australia website.
We are extremely fortunate to have a wonderful coaching team supporting our swimmers. They work very hard, and contribute much to the positive atmosphere within the club.
