Welcome to the April 12th 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 is the new online portal which will link all your interactions with swimming into one handy location – and it’s almost live in Queensland!
 

Swim Central is nearly ready to get racing, it’s lined up behind the blocks and waiting for the referee – we’re excited and hope you are too!

In Queensland, the Swim Central Pilot will be taking place in the FNQ Region only. All other regions will be joining FNQ in Swim Central in May this year! But, please ensure you don’t false start and jump in too early as all members will receive a ‘Welcome Email’ with clear instructions when Swim Central is ready for them.  

More information will continue to be sent out directly to club contacts and registrars; including FNQ specific communication regarding the upcoming pilot.
