Clayfield Aquatics Club Nights  (Results available here)

Clayfield Aquatics Club Nights are held every second Wednesday night during Term 4 and Term 1 of the School year. The first club night for 2008 will be Wednesday 8th October.
Club nights commence at 6.30pm and children are asked to be at the pool by 6.00pm to register for their events

Each club night commences with a 12.5 metre freestyle race for the younger members or younger siblings of our more competent swimmers. This is a great way for youngsters to gain confidence, experience, feel involved within the club and progress to swimming a full 25 metres as soon as possible.

Starting Times and Order of Races

Events will commence at 6.30pm sharp and the coaches will determine which strokes and distances each squad level will swim on that particular club night – these may vary however at least 3 strokes will be swum each club night.

Races are organised so that regardless of age, children swim with others of comparable ability.

All swims start with the starters gun and race times are registered by the timekeepers and stored for club records.

Club Expectations

The Club sets standards of behaviour so that all members can enjoy the activities provided. Parents are expected to attend Club nights with their children, not only to support their sporting aspirations, but also to ensure they follow club rules, particularly with respect to safety and behaviour.

As the Club is conducted on the grounds of Clayfield College, the normal rules of the school will apply. The school requires that all swimmers wear a cap in the pool. Swimming caps may be purchased from the Club Kiosk as well as Club uniforms. It is a requirement of the club that ALL swimmers wear the club cap and current club coolmesh shirt at all swim meets. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule. Those swimmers who train at Clayfield Aquatics are required to participate at all nominated BSA/QSA meets throughout the season.
