2016/17 President’s Message

I would like to welcome all parents/carers, swimmers and officials to the 2016/2017 swimming season.

The Lara Swimming Club prides itself on offering coaching to all its members. We have a fantastic coaching panel led by our head coach Kathy Plummer. The assistant coach is Robyn Cogan.  Robyn has been a long-term coach of our development squad and helps transition Learn to Swim members into Squad members.  She has help from our senior swimmers to develop and progress your child and this not only helps the junior swimmers, but also helps us develop our next Club coaches.

If you are taking your first steps into the pool through the Learn to Swim Program, I would like to extend a special welcome. We have a dedicated team of teachers who will be only too happy to assist your children.  At the Lara Swimming Club we pride ourselves on providing a warm and friendly environment in which we can pursue our sport. The Club caters for many different levels of ability and age, so please take advantage of any coaching available, the Learn to Swim Program and facilities the Club provides.

If you have any concerns or queries, or even a suggestion on how we can improve your Club or have the contact of potential sponsors, please let me or any other Committee members know.

At the Lara Swimming Club the fun isn’t reserved for only the young – we cater for the more mature athlete as well and offer competition for all ages. Our oldest swimmers are in their 80s, so don’t be shy – bring the togs down and enjoy the fun!

The Lara Swimming Club is proud to be a Club that is enjoyable to be around. To foster a happy Club environment, we run a few social functions during the season and also try to offer swimmers a breakfast on Club Meets. Please support these endeavors to help the Club raise funds and to also help create a positive environment for the swimmers and their families.

The Lara Swimming Club Committee has been stable and hard-working for many years.  This season the Committee welcomes some new members into its ranks and we hope these people will help to carry the Club forward.
