Where We Have Fitness, Friendship and Fun

Rockingham Masters Swimming is a club for adults of all ages (over 18) and abilities where we swim for fitness, fun and friendship. We cater for all abilities ranging from new and beginner swimmers to elite competitors, with each member finding their own level of enjoyment. For those with a competitive streak, there are non-compulsory inter-club swims and open water events of various distances that members are encouraged to participate in and represent the club.

Whether you are a pool swimmer or an open water swimmer or just want to improve your swimming skills you are welcome in our club. If you would like to join then you are welcome to come along to a training session or two to see if our club is definitely for you. You can join up here.

Our club boasts an International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame swimmer, an Olympic swimmer (Montreal 1976), several Solo Rottnest Channel Crossing swimmers and Masters state record holders. We have members who are not strong swimmers but are just as welcome as part of the club as the stronger ones.

Rockingham Masters is affiliated with Masters Swimming WA and Masters Swimming Australia so membership gives you access to Masters events and clubs around Australia and the world.

Training is every Tuesday and Thursday evening in the outdoor 50m pool at Aqua Jetty, Warnbro. On the Wednesday evening we also have an additional training session that is solely focused on technique. This is held in the 25m indoor pool and covers all the strokes.
