The club, also based at the Craigie Leisure Centre, has taken up residency at Leisurepark Balga and is looking for new members.

Coaching co-ordinator and club development officer Ralph McManis said the club had last month been commended by the City of Joondalup for 25 years of service and the addition of the Leisurepark complex was designed to accommodate its growth and programs from Craigie Leisure Centre.

�As the club approaches nearly 200 competitive members this summer, it was vital we find additional pool space to facilitate our growth,� Mr McManis said.

�We started at Balga last month and initially will look to develop junior swimmers from around seven to 11 years so we can prepare them for racing whether its pool, surf club or even open water.

�Our club caters for all categories of competitive swimming from juniors to high performance levels at a national and international basis.�

Mr McManis said the club, supported by the City of Stirling and Swimming WA, was excited to locate to Balga and recruit new swimmers.

�We accept members of all ages into the program and all are welcome to come for a try- out by making contact via our club website or secretary,� he said.
