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.

Safe Sport Framework Update - 4th Aug 2020
The safety of children and young people in our sport is paramount. All of us in the Australian swimming community have a role to play in ensuring that we keep our proud sport as safe and enjoyable as possible.
Over the past 18 months Swimming Australia have been working on improving the current Safe Sport Framework (SSF) to ensure it meets best practice standards in the protection of children and young people in our sport.
This work has involved consultation with our member organisations, legal firm Lander and Rogers and various experts in child safety.
The board of Swimming Australia has unanimously approved the new version of the SSF, and it will be implemented from 3 August 2020. Like the previous version, this document is binding on all of Swimming Australia’s Member Organisations and their members.
The major change to our previous SSF is that it now consists of two documents and has been consolidated to make it more user friendly:
1. Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy which deals with matters where the victim(s) of a complaint are children or young people
2. Member Protection Policy which covers discrimination, harassment, bullying, victimisation and abuse).
The documents have also been updated to include clearer and more defined definitions and an updated complaint procedure at the end of each document for ease of reference.
