Welcome to the March 15th edition of Club News!


Club News is designed to help Club Contacts stay updated with events, resources and important information relevant to their club and its members.  Club News will be delivered directly to your inbox fortnightly on a Friday.

We hope that you find this information useful and if you feel it is relevant to other committee members or your swimming community, please feel free to forward this on or share relevant articles on social media.

Have you heard about Swim Central?

Swim Central will be the new online CRM system, replacing ClubLANE, MyLANE and Results Central, which will over time link all interactions with swimming into one portal!
 
We are delighted that we are now in the very final lap of testing and racing towards the Swim Central Pilot, which is due to begin next week. The Swim Central Pilot is taking place in select areas across Australia – with the Queensland pilot to be the FNQ Region. More information will continue to be sent out directly to club contacts and registrars; including FNQ specific communication regarding the upcoming pilot.

Important School Swimming Information
Once again, it's School Swimming time of the year!

Each year, Swimming Queensland recognises particular school swim meets in order for them to be included in the National Results Database and able to be used as qualifying times for entry into Swimming Queensland events.

A current list of approved school meets are published on our website here.

Please ensure your Club’s members are aware of what meets are eligible for inclusion and understand the process for having their results from approved school meets included in the National Results Database as outlined here.

Primary School Districts Competition

Does your Club have swimmers competing at the local Primary School Districts Championships this year?

We want to congratulate them on such a fantastic achievement, so we are giving them the chance to win a school a visit from Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist Elijah Winnington as well as SQ Swim Shop Vouchers!

To enter, swimmers simply need to submit the online entry form, telling us why they would love Elijah to visit their school!

Remind your swimmers now as entries close 31/03/2019.

Free Club Websites
Has your Club got one?

As an affiliated club or region, you have access to a FREE website hosted by Interact Sport. Interact Sport is the new provider of the FREE websites, and the new website templates have improved functionality and are much easier to navigate, than the previous Visage websites. 

Action is required for any club who is still actively using their Visage website or requires access to data located within their Visage website. These old Visage websites will be switched off, and no longer accessible at the end of April this year.  

This means, that we need you to transition your website and data across to a new website with Interact Sport. But don’t worry, it’s easy to get started – simply email us a name and email address, and this person will be setup with access to your new website. The sooner you get started, the longer you have to get things up and running.
