Ringwood Swimming Club – 75th AGM and Presentation Evening

By May 1, 2010May 11th, 2010No Comments

The Ringwood Swimming Club is located at the Ringwood Aquatic Centre at Jubilee Park and provides a range of swimming activities, including competitive events for its members. The Club has had ongoing success in State and National competitions, with medals being won across a number of age groups and events.

This evening, along with my ward Colleagues, Cr. Nora Lamont and Cr. Ann Fraser, I attended the Ringwood Swimming Club’s Annual General Meeting and Presentation Evening held at the Heathmont Bowls Club. The event provided an opportunity to congratulate the many swimmers within the Club and to build upon this success for future years.

The guest speaker was Sarah Katsoulis, a Commonwealth Games record holder in 50m Breaststroke and part of the 400-medley relay team. Sarah discussed the ongoing need for training and determination so that swimmers can achieve their fullest potential. In addition, Sarah spoke about her own experiences and challenges as a competitive swimmer and provided insights into the sport.

The Ringwood Swimming Club, which is celebrating its 75th year, has had a long association with Ringwood and it is great to see the Club celebrating its ongoing success. Swimming complements the many other sporting activities within Jubilee Park and Council is currently finalising the Management Plan for this precinct. Combined with further improvements, this will help ensure that Jubilee Park and the associated facilities meet the changing needs of Ringwood and Maroondah.
