Swim Club & Squads

Our fitness squads – Junior (Year 4-6) and Senior (Year 7-12) provide swimming training for fitness and endurance, while our competitive squads - Target, Development and Performance- offer an increased level of training and competitive focus. We also offer Triathlon squad training, including bike and run sessions, for those interested.

If your interest lies with club swimming, FAST is a fantastic team to be part of. FAST (Fairholme Aquatics Swim Team) welcomes swimmers from Fairholme College and the wider community, offering training and competitive opportunities for all. Once a swimmer commences FAST training, usually with Junior Fitness, their pathway is as unique as they are, with competitive squad invitations dependent on age and ability.

Check out FAST’s Swimming Australia website for further details.

Club Nights

Club Nights are held throughout the year, giving swimmers the opportunity to practice their skills in a familiar, 'home turf' race environment. These nights are a great introduction to competitive swimming, as well as a fun, relaxed social gathering for the whole Club.

To make these nights possible, we rely on Mums and Dads helping out. Don't worry if any of these roles are a new task for you - they are easy and we give training! Helper roles include timekeeping, starter, marshaller, BBQer or food stall helper and data entry.

Sponsorship

Are you in a position to sponsor a Club event, team activity or morale-boosting reward for our swimmers? If so we would love to hear from you! All sponsor contributions are gratefully acknowledged and promoted to our Club members, College families and beyond. Please email fast@fairholme.qld.edu.au
