Step 1 - Come Along and Enjoy 4 Free Sessions

The first step to becoming a member of the Rockingham Masters Swimming Club is to come to one of our training nights. We provide four (4) free “try before you buy” sessions (normal pool entry is required) where you can meet the other members and participate in the squad training. 

If you are new to swimming or a bit hesitant, no need to worry as our wonderful coaches will guide you and provide feedback with the rest of the members making you feel welcome.

After you have enjoyed your 4 free sessions and decided you like to continue on, then it’s time to become a fully fledged Rockingham Masters Swimming Club Member by joining up with Masters Swimming WA.

The second step is to join Masters Swimming WA to become affiliated with our club. By becoming a member of MSWA you become a member of a Masters Swimming Club, in this case our Rockingham club.
