The Wishart Sharks hold a club night each Friday night of the swimming season (Term 4 and Term 1). The club nights are a chance for club members to get out and have a good time competing against their own previous times as well as against their friends. Races are arranged so swimmers are swimming against others with similar times for that event (rather than by age). Each night there is an open 100m event and 25m & 50m in each stroke.
Club nights are a fun night, with much cheering and excitement. There is a canteen that provides drinks and snacks and we run a BBQ that serves up burgers, chicken skewers and sausages.
Come along, let the kids hit the pool, grab a burger and a drink and join in the community that is the Wishart Sharks Swim Club.
Gates open 5:15pm
15m Race: A 15m event is run for swimmers unsure if they can swim 25m swimmers. This event is held prior to the night commencing at approximately 5:45pm. Club Seniors and family members are available to support swimmers during this event. No nomination required
Nominations for races close at 6pm Thursday evening - all nominations are by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). The nomination invitation email is sent each week. Nominate by replying to the email.
Racing starts at 6:15pm and the night finishes around 8pm
