About Us

 

 

South Cronulla Penguins Swim Club was formed in 1995. Membership is open to swimmers from 5 to 18 yrs. Our club caters to swimmers of all abilities with races held over distances from 12.5m 200m.

Swim club meets on Friday nights (except during school holidays) with a start time of 7pm. Entry cards must be in by 6.45pm. Club nights are held at the Cronulla Sports Complex, Cronulla Beach.

Our swim club has both a summer and a winter season.

Throughout the season a Pointscore competition is run. Every month the highest pointscorers are rewarded with Swimmer of the Month. Certificates are awarded to swimmers as they achieve the times to go up to the next distance. Championships are run at the end of every season.

A Presentation night is held at the end of every season. Trophies and medals are awarded in recognition of:

Pointscore - 1st to 6th in each of 4 age divisions
 
Championship - 1st, 2nd and 3rd in every age (boy and girl)
 
Attendance - 100%
