Our Club

Vision Statement...

We aim to provide an environment where each member can be a champion and a good member of our community. We seek a high level of participation in the management and growth of our club by swimmers and their families. We want every member to be proud to be part of Clayfield Aquatics and to be supported in their efforts by the committees, coaches and fellow members.
