All training sessions are held at the Port Lincoln Leisure Centre. You must be a financial member of Swimming SA and member of West Coast Swimming Club to train with any of our squads. Squad lists and the training timetables are reviewed on a term by term basis. It is important that you only attend the sessions which you have been allocated to. West Coast Swimming Club offers differentiated programs across five squad levels from Junior through to National Open level.

We have condensed our squad into two divisions. Our Gold squad are invited to train 5 pool sessions per week and frequently also work with the staff at the YMCA to develop a complementary strength and conditioning program once reaching 13 years of age. Our Development squad train 4 sessions per week. 3 of these are with the Development Squad and then they can add a 4th session in a Gold time of their choosing. All squad allocations are reviewed on a term by term basis and are the result of ranking all registered members in the club. Swimmers are ranked based upon the cumulative time of their four 50m personal bests (regardless of them being achieved in a short or long course pool).
Where We Train
The West Coast Swimming Club train at the Port Lincoln Leisure Centre in Port Lincoln and at other regional pools such as Cummins. Membership to the club is open to swimmers from across the Eyre Peninsula and training opportunities are dependent on the availability of coaches and facilities in each regional location. Throughout the year swimmers are also given the opportunity to be involved in coaching clinics and training programs outside of club activities.
