Training Shedule

The Table below is for in term training times only. Times will alter during term breaks as we are able to secure training at NAC for some squads and introduce different start times to give the members a break from early morning starts and/or alternatives. However, these changes will be communicated directly to the members via other avenues and will not show here.

Training Facility

In a sport where pool space is at a premium we are fortunate to have access to the Northcote College school pool for our exclusive use. We are extremely grateful for the relationship we have with the school and have worked hard with them to maintain the pool to the highest standard possible. This has seen us, with the assistance of some very generous club members, replace the starting blocks, provide improved seating around the pool and an outdoor dry land training area. Recently the school has also been able to have the pool resurfaced and re-painted.

The next improvement we are working towards is replacing the semi-perminant pool cover with a new sprung structure which will allow for even more comfort all year round along with upgrading the changing rooms.

If you would like to know more about this upgrade or how you can help please contact David See. 

Imagine the possibilities!
