Swim into Spring
Swim into Spring is Masters Swimming Australia’s annual membership campaign. The campaign is designed to increase the profile of Masters Swimming Australia, attracting members at the start of the ‘swimming season’, which began on the 1st of September.
Masters Swimming Australia provides support to its Branches and clubs via a Swim into Spring Campaign Toolkit. If your club hasn’t received one, please contact your Branch Administrator or the National Office. Masters Swimming Australia Branches and clubs have the opportunity to conduct events and activities under the “Swim into Spring” banner. If you are a MSA club/member and would like to know more about this program contact your Branch of MSA.
If you are considering becoming a Masters swimmer, keep an eye out for any activities happening in your area.
Below are some examples of how you or your club can use the program to help raise awareness of your club and if there are events happening in your state – or visit your Branch/State website.
Casey Seals (VCS) – are advertising the Swim Into Spring program on their webpage.
Many of them compete in the open water swimming races held over summer at various beaches around Port Phillip Bay and the ocean beaches around Victoria and every year they compile the Casey Seals Open Water Swim Calendar, the top source of information on Victorian open water swim events.
They are also active in pool competition and are registered with MSV. At last count, their members have set more than 20 Australian and 70 Victorian records and they consistently rank highly in the Victorian championships and are the top club in the outer south, southeast and east suburbs of Melbourne.
Busselton Masters – have appeared for the second time in a row in their local paper (local papers are a great way to share information about your club) This year they are celebrating their success at the 2018 Winter Postal Swim which was held in Bunbury. The event sees swimmers from all around Australia compete against each other, 17 Masters Swimming Clubs took part and 127 swimmers competed.
