Club masters its stroke

COFFS Harbour Masters Swimming Club is rising the ranks thanks to a successful 2017.

The club won the Masters Swimmers Division 3 last year and earned the right to compete in the more competitive Division 2 this ear.

From only a handful of members in 2014 the club found its stroke.

The Coffs Harbour Masters Swimming Club won the NSW Masters Swimming Division 4 in 2015 and capped off 2017 by winning Division 3.

But being promoted to Division 2 this year will be a challenge for the club, located hundreds of kilometres away from the the centre of the competition in Sydney.

The ascent of the club up the divisional ladder was a remarkable achievement for the regional club which is looking to add to its talented pool of swimmers.

Swimmers are offered regular squad training sessions, endurance swims and competitions.

The club, bases at Coffs Harbour Aquatic Centre, also has social functions and caters for fitness and non-competitive swimmers of all levels.

If you would like to find out more about the club, phone Leanne on 0429 995 595 or visit www.coffsmastersswimming.weebly.com.
