Swim club cover the costs to help swimmers gain experience

IN a positive move, the Western Aquatics Swim Club is covering the costs of numerous national, state and Brisbane level meets to help swimmers gain valuable competition during the season.

"This can save many families upwards of $500 a year,'' head coach and race secretary Heath Ramsay said. "So they can continue to participate in the sport they love.''

While representative events are coming into the spotlight, Western Aquatics membership numbers are continuing to grow.

In its third season since being formed, Western Aquatics has more than 130 swimmers involved with the club.

Ramsay said getting parents involved was a key focus of the community-based club.

Swimmers train through the week at the West Moreton Anglican College pool with club events on Friday nights.

Ramsay thanked patrons, Ipswich councillor Cheryl Bromage and West Moreton Anglican College principal Geoff McLay, for their continued support of the club.
