The club, formerly housed at the Craigie Leisure Centre, has taken up residence 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 move to the Leisurepark complex was designed to accommodate its growth and programs.

�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 it�s 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, which was supported by the City of Stirling and Swimming WA, was excited to move 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.
