The 2012/2013 swim season is in full swing. Our recent sign-on process was very successful. We urge all our members who have not as yet submitted their forms to Helen, to do so urgently. We are very grateful to all our parents who have submitted their parent memberships. Thank you very much.

 Last week, three of our swimmers traveled to Sydney with their families to compete in the School Sport Australia National Swimming Championships. They were accompanied by Tim.This was a most successful meet for all three swimmers and Clayfield Aquatics is very proud of their performances in the pool and sportsmanship in and out of the water. Results from this meet are as follows:

 This last weekend saw excellent performances by all our competitors in the Brisbane Short Course Championships. Our club earned valuable premiership points from many outstanding swims by our swimmers. Well done to all  swimmers who participated. We are proud of everyone's efforts. A link for the results is here.

 Our club has a few upcoming events for swimmers and families. Please take note of the following:
