About Us

Updated 9th June 2019

Australind Swimming Club (formerly Golden West Dolphins) is based at the Leschenault Leisure Centre in Australind, Western Australia.

We have four coaches who provide training on a weekly basis all year round.

We promote a club culture that helps swimmers achieve the best of their ability whilst having fun, enjoying a sport that they can continue to participate in at all ages.

New members

New swimmers are always welcome. Please click here if you are interested in finding out more about the club or want to participate in three free ‘Come & Try’ sessions.

Seasons

Long course – This season runs from October to April. Competition events are held in a 50m, long-course pool

Short course – This season runs from May to September. Competition events are held in a 25m, short-course pool.

Annual registration for Australind Swimming Club occurs in October. This includes registration with Swimming Australia. Swimmers can choose to register for both Long Course and Short Course seasons, or select to sign up for just one season.

New swimmers are welcome to join the club at any stage throughout the year.

Fees

As well as paying an annual registration fee, swimmers will pay a monthly squad fee to cover pool bookings and club administration. The monthly fee is different for each squad.  Please click here to view the latest annual registration and squad fees.

Please note that annual registration and squad fees do not cover pool entry fees. This fee is charged by the Leschenault Leisure Centre upon entry. Swimmers are encouraged to purchase LLC membership to help minimise costs.

Training

Please click here to view the latest squad sessions. A new swimmer to the club will be assessed by the coaches and assigned to the most suitable squad for their ability.

Time Trials

From October to March the whole club are invited to participate in Friday night Time Trials. This provides the opportunity for swimmers from all squads to interact. It gives new swimmers the chance to practice their new found skills in racing in a friendly, supportive atmosphere.

Time trials also provide an opportunity for all the parents and guardians to meet, form new friendships and socialise at dinners held after the events.

Time trials are all about trying to best your time from the week before.

Swimming WA Competitions

Swimming WA sanctioned competitions are held in Perth and the Southwest region on weekends throughout the year. Swimmers over 10 years of age are encouraged to participate at Target meets, selected by the coaches at the beginning of each season. Click here for a list of the latest Target Meets.
