Swimming Club in Sandgate

There is no swimming club in Sandgate for adult swimmers. However, there is one just over the bridge in Redcliffe. Redcliffe Peninsula Masters swimming club is based at the Redcliffe War Memorial Pool, Sydney Street. 

 

This is a great advantage as this is a 50m indoor pool that is open all year round.

The Benefits of Joining Our 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.

 

You Can Swim with Us Before You Join

If you are unsure about joining our swimming club then we invite you to swim with us for up to four training sessions before you have to officially sign up.

 

This gives you a chance to see if the club meets your needs and expectations, and to see if it is worth the journey over the bridge. 

 

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 6.00 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 our swimming club brings.

 

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 your 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.

 

So, if you are a swimmer living in the Sandgate area, why not consider joining us just over the bridge.
