Club Trophies

We had our first ever prize giving last month and it was awesome!  Click here to see the photo’s of the award and trophy winners and congratulations to all of our swimmers!

For future years the club is looking for trophy sponsors (of which we have received 7 sponsors to date) and we’d love your families name to be on one of them.

There are 6 categories in total and 5 of them are given to one male and one female, totaling 11 awards.

Trophies will cost $300 which includes engraving of the trophy.

If you are wanting to donate a trophy please e-mail the club Treasurer Nat Fletcher.

Hopefully, we will have all trophies organised to present at next AGM.
