Masters Swimming Australia Memberships

We are excited that our 2023 Memberships opened on the 1 November 2022 via Swim Central 

Who Can Join?

Membership is open to people who are 18 years or are older. An individual who has attained the age of 18 can join a Masters Club to train and compete in club, branch and national Masters events. FINA still retains it’s minimum age for competing at 25 years.

 

You can travel the world as an Australian masters swimmer and train with any masters club. We recommend you do some research about the Club(s) before you travel and introduce yourself and check on their latest training information to confirm arrangements for the session.
