Upcoming events

11 December 2020: Beat the Clock

Fremantle Leisure Centre Squads are excited to announce BEAT THE CLOCK SUMMER 2020 on Friday 11 December 68pm.

This is a FREE swimming event for all squad swimmers and students in our piranhas and mantarays Learn to Swim levels and youth swim, teen swim, junior lifeguard club programs. We encourage all parents/guardians to put their child’s name down for at least one event and have a go!

The aim of this event is to introduce our swimmers to competition swimming in a fun, friendly and pressure-free environment. Has your child ever wanted to feel what it’s like to race, to dive off a dive block or have their times recorded for different strokes over 25 and 50 metre distances? Then this is the perfect event for them to give it a go!

All squad coaches plus volunteers from the Fremantle Port Swimming Club will be there to cheer the swimmers on and help guide them from pool deck. This time we will also be throwing in a few exciting novelty events (in red on the list of events below) for your children and you as parents/guardians to try! The swimming club will be cooking a sausage sizzle too so bring along a few gold coins if you want to have a sausage!
