‘Fun, Fitness, Friendship’
Superfins WA Inc provides opportunity for members with a physical or learning/intellectual difficulty to reach their potential in swimming.
The club is run by a volunteer committee and endeavors to organise social and fundraising events which involve as many of our swimmers and families as possible. Our goal is to enact the club motto of “Fun, Fitness, Friendship”.
Superfins is managed by volunteer parent committees and a subcommittee for social events is run by the swimmers.
The committees coordinate and oversee the management of the Club.
Elections for positions on the committees are held every year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) usually held in July. All members can nominate for positions and have voting rights.
The roles of the committees are to manage and administer the Club, which involves but is not limited to, financial management, fundraising, organizing social activities and the development and implementation of relevant policies and guidelines.
Management Committee meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month Fundraising/Social committee meetings are held on the second Wednesdays of each month. Meetings commence at 7.15pm at Challenge Stadium. All members and parents are encouraged and welcome to attend the committee meetings.
Other committee positions made up by members of the club
A monthly newsletter is produced to keep all members up to date with swimming competitions, swimmer’s achievements, fundraising and social activities.
Personal Bests (PB’s) and Annual Trophy Awards
The club acknowledges personal best performances in the pool and open water swims by way of PB badges and certificates which are awarded each 6 months. These are given for each 5 PB swims achieved during that period. Annual trophies are awarded at the end of each year at a combined Christmas/Trophy presentation function.
