June Events

There are two upcoming events in June. Firstly there is the Sunshine Coast Postal over 1, 2 or 3km. This is an event that everyone can participate in! The club will be arranging some sessions at the Redcliffe pool for this event, either as part of our normal training sessions or at other times. It costs just $5 per event to participate in this. We'd like to encourage as many members as possible to have a go! Read the flyer here.

The Caboolture Cray's Short Course Meet will be held on June 19. If you wish to attend this meet I will need your entry on Monday night at the latest. Read the flyer for this event here.

Also on the horizon to think about is the Brisbane Northside Short Course meet on August 20th. This event is unique in the fact that it includes a 1500 or 800 Short Course event on the day. Read the flyer here.
