Swimming NSW club benefits

Become part of a network of over 350 clubs and 33,000 members in NSW.

Swimming NSW clubs are part of a massive support system provided by Swimming Australia, Swimming NSW staff and their local area committees. Being affiliated with Swimming NSW will afford your club a great reputation from the get-go.

People who seek to become members will know your club has high standards for child safety and club governance. Your social club members can take advantage of the Optus Junior Dolphins grassroots membership program, or can progress along our athlete performance pathway if they're more competitive.

You can also impress your members with your club website and invite your members to log in to their personalised member portal, provided for free by Swimming Australia.
