Redcliffe Peninsula Masters swimming club is based at the Redcliffe War Memorial Pool, Sydney Street.

This is a great advantage as you get to train in an Olympic size (50m) swimming pool. Other pools in the area are only 25m long.

 

Why Join the Redcliffe Peninsula Masters Swimming Club?

The swimming club welcomes all swimmers, whether you want to train for and enter competitions, or if you just want to swim to keep fit.

The club regularly has teams that compete at Masters Swimming Queensland meets. These meets are open to anyone over the age of 18.

You don’t have to be a competitive swimmer to join the Redcliffe Peninsula Masters swimming club. If you are just looking for a friendly, sociable environment in which to swim, you are still welcome.

Our swimming coaches, Terry and Colleen set programs that cater to the needs of a wide range of swimming abilities from beginners through to competition swimmers.

 

Swim with Us For a Month Before You Join

If you are unsure about joining the Redcliffe Peninsula Masters Swimming Club then we invite you to swim with us for up to a month before you have to officially sign up.

This gives you a chance to see if the club meets you needs and expectations.

Our coaches will assess your swimming ability and ensure that you are swimming in a lane alongside other members with a similar fitness level.

 

Swimming Club Training Nights

We meet every Monday and Thursday evening at the Redcliffe War Memorial Pool, 50 Sydney Street.

Sessions start at 6.15 PM.

You will have a different training program to follow at each session. Our coaches set the programs according to ability.

Your training programs comprises three sets:

  • Warm up
  • Main set
  • Swim down

Warm up

This will normally include a few easy laps to prepare you for the main set, and some training drills to help you improve your swimming technique and swimming efficiency.

Main Set

Once you have warmed up, we step up the pace a little. The main set will help you improve your fitness and, for those who are interested, will help you develop the disciplines required for competition swimming.

Swim Down

If you go to a gym, you will be familiar with the concept of stretching out after a workout. The swim down is the equivalent. The pace eases off and again drills are brought in to allow you to develop and improve your swimming technique.

 

Social Swimming

There are also the social benefits that joining the Redcliffe Peninsula Masters swimming club bring.

If you currently swim on your own, you may find yourself getting bored and hopping out of the pool sooner than you intended.

When you join our club, you will find you lane companions help to spur you on. Sometimes, it helps to have other swimmers of a similar ability around you to motivate you to complete the training program.

We also meet up on a social basis outside of the pool from time to time. This gives us all the opportunity to get to know each other better and spend time just chatting over drinks and food.
