Fees and Insurance

The club is managed on a July 1st to June 30th financial year.  Fees for the LTS program are charged on a term by term basis. Squad fees are charged each semester to be paid in January and July and cover costs of lane hire, coaching, administration and membership of SWA or MSWA and WADSA. Fees are reviewed each 6 months and kept to a minimum.

Fundraising and Social

Many fundraising functions are held throughout the year, examples including chocolate drives, quiz nights, footy tipping, entertainment books, and an annual Swim-a-thon.  Our fundraising policy is that the profit from each fundraising event is divided equally between each swimmer who participated and kept in a fundraising account. Funds are available to be used by the swimmer, at the discretion of the committee, for activities such as attendance at swimming camps, and going on swimming trips either locally or interstate.

 

Superfins WA also organises many social events throughout the year such as attending plays or musicals, 10-pin bowling,  camps (locations which have included Mundaring and Woodman Point), sausage sizzles, boat cruises and picnics.

Affiliations

Membership is open to any person with a disability. The swimming club is a member of Swimming WA (SWA), Masters Swimming WA (MSWA) and also WA Disabled Sports Association (WADSA).

Learn to Swim

The Learn to Swim program is aimed at teaching the basics of swimming and aquatic safety to school-aged children with disabilities. The Learn to Swim program is run at the Lords Sports Centre in Hay St, Subiaco, on Thursday afternoons.

We offer a no-stress, learn at your own pace program with a maximum of three children per class. There are no stages, and the pool is a heated (29degC), indoors pool.

Lessons are 45 min in length and designed for children to learn the basics of swimming in order to progress to the advanced mini squad also running at Lords from Term 3 2012. In the mini squad swimmers will learn basics of lane etiquette, simple drills and swimming 25m lengths. Progression form this group will be to the main Superfins squad program at Challenge Stadium, once the necessary skills are achieved.
