About Us

History

The nucleus of the Club was formed in late 2001, following the opening of the Riverton Leisureplex on the corner of High and Riley Roads, Riverton, Western Australia in November that year.  The Club was formally established and commenced training and activities in January 2002 and was initially named Riverton AUSSI Masters Swimming Club.  The name was changed to Riverton Masters Swimming Club in January 2010, when the acronym AUSSI (Australian Union of Senior Swimmers International) was dropped by Masters Swimming Australia, its state branches and most clubs at that time.

Current

The Riverton Masters Swimming Club is still based at the Riverton Leisureplex.  It is affiliated with Masters Swimming WA and forms part of the Masters Swimming Australia organisation.

Members swim on Monday and Wednesday evenings year-round, using the indoor, heated 50 metre pool at the Leisureplex.  The advantages of joining the Club include:

* a safe and managed environment to keep fit, have fun and form friendships

* reserved training lanes to suit all levels of swimmers

* training programs tailored to suit swimmers’ abilities

* stroke correction by qualified coaches

* social activities

* encouragement for improvement with time trials and distance swims

* encouragement to participate in inter-club swim meets and open water swims

* motivation and great support to have you swimming better than you thought you could and it’s much more enjoyable in a group than being on your own.

Incorporation/Governance

The Club is an incorporated body and a non-profit organisation.  An annual membership fee covers Club expenses as well as a Masters Swimming component.  The Club is governed by a Rules of Association (constitution) and By-Laws and administered by a management committee elected annually by its members.
