The club’s response to the pandemic and government directions on distancing in 2020 was to add additional training sessions for members. As restrictions lift and guidelines allow more swimmers to train together, Bluefin Swimming Club is looking forward to a phased return to our pre-covid schedule.


What’s new?

Two training sessions will cease to continue at the end of this monthTuesdays at 5:45am and Sunday at 6:45am.

Competitive JNRs move from Tuesday to Wednesday AM.
Competitive SNRs move from Tuesday to Renmore on Monday PM.
Performance move from Sunday AM to Saturday AM.
Endurance move from Tuesday to Wednesday AM, and from Sunday AM to Sunday PM.

Wednesday 5:30pm now starts at 5:45pm.

This session will finish at 7:15 for all Skills and Development swimmers.

Saturday AM now starts at 5:45am.
These changes take effect on Friday 1st October 2021 with further changes later in the season.

We would like to thank all our families for your continued support.

Basic Breaststroke Workshop

Get to grips with breaststroke on Sundays in September from 6pm to 6:45pm

This workshop is for athletes in Skills and Development Squads – but specifically for those who need some extra help mastering legal breaststroke kicks and the timing of this competitive stroke.

Since pools have reopened, lessons and swim teachers are booked out. We have been very lucky to find a little corner of our pool to help our swimmers – so make the most of this opportunity!

Register your interest before this Friday 3rd September and we will confirm viability, price and dates this Saturday. Dates to be confirmed: September 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th
