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 throughout the year in an Olympic size (50m) indoor swimming pool. Other 50m pools in the area are outdoors.

Why Join the Redcliffe Peninsula Masters Swimming Club?

The swimming club welcomes all swimmers, over the age of 18. 

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.

We offer two types of Membership:

  • Masters Membership
  • Social Membership

Masters Swimming Membership

Masters membership enables you to enter any of the swim meets held by Masters Swimming QLD during 2022. 

You and a guest can also attend any of the social events being held by the club throughout 2022 including the open water swims. 

Masters members train for competitive swimming by participating in Belgravia Leisure's SwimFit sessions, which are held Monday and Thursday evenings at the Redcliffe Memorial Pool. You do not need to be a member of the club to participate in SwimFit.

Social Membership

Social membership allows you and a guest to attend any of the social events being held by the club throughout 2022 including the open water swims. 

You will not be able to enter any of the Masters Swimming QLD swim meets.

Swimming Club Training Nights

Redcliffe Peninsula Masters Swimming Club takes advantage of the SwimFit program that runs on Monday and Thursday evenings at the Redcliffe War Memorial Pool, 50 Sydney Street. 

Our Training page has more information on SwimFit. Please note pool entry fees are not included in your membership.

Sessions start at 6.00 PM.

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

Your training program is comprised of three parts:

  • Warm up
  • Main set
  • Swim down

Warm up

This is a few easy laps to get your muscles warmed and prepared for the main set.

Main Set

Once you have warmed up, we step up the pace a little. The main set will help you improve your speed or fitness and will help you develop the disciplines required for competitive 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 to reduce muscle stiffness and soreness after the exercise.

Monday's training sessions develop your fitness and endurance, whereas Thursday sessions focus on skills and speed. These may swap around without prior notice. 

Advantages of Competitive Swimming

If you currently swim on your own, you may find yourself getting bored and that you are not really pushing yourself.

Join as a Masters member and set yourself goals to improve your speed and fitness.

Swimming competitions add that extra dimension to your swimming. As well as the social element that comes with being part of a team, you get to compete and test yourself against swimmers in your own age group.

At training, you will find your lane companions help to spur you on. It helps to have other swimmers of a similar ability around you to motivate you to complete the training program.

We also hold social events throughout the year. This gives us all the opportunity to get to know each other better and spend time just chatting over drinks and food.
