Graceville Lightning Swim Club invites you to join us this year in Term 4 and Term 1 on Fridays from 5.30pm.
Club Night Schedule
Free Swim for all: 5.30pm - 6.00pm
Individual Medley: 100m
Freestyle: 15m, 25m, 50m
Backstroke: 15m, 25m, 50m
Breaststroke: 15m, 25m, 50m
Butterfly: 15m, 25m, 50m
We start the night with an extended Free Swim for all from 5.30pm to 6.00pm, giving everyone chance to arrive at their own pace.
At 6.00pm the Assisted Swim will start for younger children (usually Prep or Year 1) who need a little help completing 12.5m. An Assisted Swim begins at the half way point of the pool, with a Year 5 or 6 student in each lane, with the swimmer, to gently keep the swimmer buoyant and moving along to the finish line at the shallow end.
Aside from Free and Assisted swims... parents select which races to participate in each week via the Swim Club Connect App... which builds the race schedule.
Parents use the Swim Club Connect App each week to nominate their swimmers, selecting which races to participate in, view race schedules and week to week results. Check out the link above or the dropdown menu for more info. You will need to download (or update) the Swim Club Connect App to be ready for the new season.
The BBQ, supplied by Andrews Meats Indooroopilly, will be running each Friday night along with the canteen for drinks and snacks.

Don't miss the wonderful meat tray raffles every other week donated by Andrews. Our BBQ produce wouldn't taste so good if it wasn't for the donated bread and rolls from Miettes.
