Surrey Park Seahorses Masters Swimming Club is based at Aqualink Box Hill. Masters Swimming in Australia caters for swimmers from 18 years of age. We currently have around 35 members aged from early 30s to early 70s and of varying swimming abilities. The club always welcomes new members and interested swimmers can train at one of our sessions twice at no cost and with no obligation to join. Annual membership includes insurance and membership of the club and the state and national branches of Masters Swimming. We do not provide learn to swim lessons. Interested swimmers should be able to swim at least 200-300 metres.
Our training sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday from 7.15pm to 8.30pm in the new outdoor pool. These sessions cost $10 and swimmers are billed bi-monthly in arrears. Pool entry is not included. Many members, however, take advantage of the generous annual membership concessions offered by Aqualink to club members.
On Sunday mornings the club also holds sessions in the outdoor pool for members and a timed sprint meet once a month. On the other Sundays, the club organises long distance swims from 400 metres to 60 minutes which are part of a nationwide Masters Swimming competition. This session is held between 9am and 11am. The only cost on Sundays is pool entry.
Many of members like to compete at interclub, state, national and even world championships; however, this is not obligatory. Others simply like to swim for enjoyment, fitness or to improve their swimming ability in a social environment. Personal swimming goals are important and coaches are skilled at aiding members to improve their swimming and to achieve their individual goals.
