    South Coast has been awarded Club of the Year by SwimmingSA for the 2011-

    12 year.

    South Coast is thrilled to receive this award and thank the outstanding efforts of

    its members;

    Swimmers; in the water, both Pool and Open Water, our swimmers have shown

    some great performances, with several SA Champions. Our swimmers had the

    honour of being Basket Handlers at both the Short Course Championships and

    Olympic Trials when they were held in Adelaide the past swim year.

    Parents; supporting their children to participate in their

    chosen sport of swimming, taxi driver, supervising the

    Basket Handlers and the assistance with our Carnival and

    the general everyday running and administration of our


    Coaches; none of the results achieved by our swimmers or

    our club could have been achieved without the great efforts of

    our Head Coach Paul Higgs and Assistant Coach Brian

    Campbell. Keeping abreast of and implementing training for

    the various training needs of our swimmers has seen great results in the Pool,

    Open Water and Surf Lifesaving competitions.

    Congratulations everyone on a job well done!

    On Saturday 15th

    September we celebrated our 21st Birthday. Although hours are spent at the pool, holding the

    party at the pool didnt dampen the party mood.

    The fun run saw plenty of action and some amazing contortions of the human body, as

    did the Tarzan rope! Several parents took to the water for some fierce racing (Organizers

    were given a few scares. CPR knowledge was suddenly of high priority). Pizza & Cake

    went down well with some black mouthed swimmers from

    the Orange & Black Cup Cakes! Sharon Kreslin, ex-

    swimming parent and South Coast friend, made the most

    amazing cake; a replica of the Club shirt. It was almost a pity

    to eat it. It was amazing!

    South Coast has had a proud and successful history since 1991. Many of our

    swimmers have been holders of State and National Titles and Records and looks

    forward to the future and hopes to continue its success at State, National and

    International levels in Pool, Lifesaving and Open Water.

    HAPPY 21ST


    The final sessions of the Short Course Championships were completed on Sunday 26th August. The

    Championships concluded with the Club Team Relays on Sunday night. This year we had a huge team of 36

    swimmers attend the meet over the 2 weekends. Congratulations to all our swimmers on their performances. A

    massive 86% of our attending swimmers achieved PBs with 11 Club Records broken, medals in Age, Open and

    Relay events. Assistant Coach Brian got into the mood of the Relays night and graced us with his African

    Drum playing; throughout the evening!!

    Congratulations to everyone on a great meet and well

    October 2012 is being transformed into EnergyAustralia GO Swim Month. This national campaign is aimed at promoting swimming through registered Energy Australia GO Swim Centers.

    An Energy Australia GO Swim Day is an introduction to a local swim club or a chance for existing members to get together and celebrate everything they love about swimming and their club. South Coast is pleased to be a part of the Energy Australia GO Swim Month. On Friday 6th of October we are holding our Energy Australia GO Swim Day.

    We will be having our Time Trials as normal with a few fun events, time permitting.

    Invite friends from school or other sports you are involved in, so come along and have a GO Swim.

    A few jobs have become vacant since the AGM.

    Fees Officer: We are looking for someone to fill this position with some

    knowledge of Microsoft Excel or maybe you have a better system for

    recording receipt of coaching fees etc. You may have to report some statistical

    information to the Committee on a few occasions.

    Newsletter Editor: Computer knowledge, wit & the ability to have eyes &

    ears open for any news that is around the Club.

    Neither job requires attendance at Committee meeting unless they wish to. If you can help, please email Aileen

  • Hoodies:

    As many would know, we are getting Hoodies. The design was chosen by a large majority vote from all members. The results were close for the colour of

    the name, the orange name won by a small margin.

    Hopefully they will arrive in time for some use before the warm weather sets in!

    Swim Caps:

    A competition was held to design a new Club cap. The entrants that submitted

    designs did a lot of work on their designs with not one but several ideas entered.

    Thank you and well done to Katherine Hudson, Josie Hudson, Nicole Mader,

    Joshua Whitehead and Rachael Mader for your ideas.

    A design was selected by the Committee and the winning cap was designed by Nicole

    Mader (Aileen Mader, parent of 2 entrants and committee member withdrew from

    voting). Nicole won $50 for her ef
