At Lara Swimming Club, we believe that every swimmer can be a champion. Whether it’s proudly touching the wall in their first fifty meter swim, competing for enjoyment, or striving for qualifying times, our programs will help them do their best while our culture will help them be their best.

Our friendly club provides opportunities for the whole family to enjoy the benefits of swimming. We hold learn to swim classes for children from five years old, squad training for competition and fitness and even a semi-retired competition at our regular Saturday morning meets. Our adult learn to swim and technique refinement classes are also a popular option.

If you’d rather stay dry, that’s not a problem. There’s always plenty of activity poolside thanks to our Social Club and Fundraising committees.

Get wet. Get healthy.


Lara Swimming Club was established in 1963. Our focus has always been on being a family club. There are many children participating today whose parents and grandparents swam with Lara. Many of our club officials and committee are former swimmers.

Swimmers are encouraged to focus on personal achievements in and out of the water. We recognise that many of our swimmers have gone on to hold leadership positions in their schools and communities. In the water, our swimmers compete at local, district, state and national levels. We encourage all our members to be the best swimmers they can be.

Our mission is to provide a friendly atmosphere that will encourage and assist individuals to achieve their desired goals and reach their full potential, within the Swimming Club environment.
