Ironside Swim Club

Ironside Swim Club is a sub-committee of the Ironside Parents’ and Citizens’ Association. The club provides a family-friendly and fun environment where children under the age of 15 are able to participate in a variety of timed swimming races. All families from Ironside State School and the local community are welcome to join the swimming club. The club meets on Friday evenings from 6.00pm in school terms one and four. Note that all children must be accompanied by an adult. The meets include a free swim, chaperoned races for less confident swimmers and a BBQ. Please see attached for the application form for new member.

The Ironside Swim Club kicks off the 2017-18 season at the school pool on Friday 6th October and will run each Friday night throughout Term 4, 2017 and Term 1, 2018.


A free swim, race nominations and barbeque starts at 6:00pm. Come and try for the first two weeks for free and participate in races in a friendly, social environment.


Younger, less experienced swimmers are welcome and can even swim in the supervised “tadpole” races held early in the night. All swimmers who register and pay to join in for the swimming season receive a participation gift.


Ironside Swim Club is entirely run by parent or carer volunteers and we are in need of support for the upcoming season; club Secretary, Treasurer, as well as BBQ coordinators are needed, and during the swim club nights, there are other opportunities to participate including in marshalling and time keeping roles.


There will also be other swim meet opportunities for swimmers including a competition with Milton State School in late October, so stay tuned.
Please come and join us. We look forward to seeing new and returning swimmers on the first Friday night of the new term. If you would like to volunteer or have any questions, please email ironsideswimclub@gmail.com or give me a call on 0439 906 667.
