Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

THE Vic­to­ria Park Swim­ming Club ex­pe­ri­enced a big in­crease in mem­ber­ship num­bers when train­ing recom­menced ear­lier this month.

Head coach Chris Lin said the club was fo­cused on cre­at­ing cham­pi­ons in and out of the pool.

To en­cour­age the new swim­mers, the club will host a ‘Swim Stars’ meet on Fe­bru­ary 21 to give novice mem­bers, as well as non-mem­bers, a chance to com­pete in a friendly en­vi­ron­ment.

Next month, the club will also start run­ning school swim­ming for two lo­cal pri­mary schools in con­junc­tion with the Fed­eral Govern­ment’s school sports pro­gram.

In­ter­ested schools can con­tact the club.
