Welcome to SEPTEMBER!
Put away your winter clothes and join us as we
‘Swim into Spring’.

MSV has just launched its new exciting ‘Swim into Spring’ campaign which also coincided with the opening of the new 2016/17 membership season. For more info about both please check out the next news item.
September is going to be a very exciting month with the MSV LC Relay Championships on the 25 September (registrations close 11th September so get in quick – see link below) and our first #swimintospring event - the Freestyle Stroke Correction Clinic with Brad Harris at Warrnambool 24 – 25 September.
And October is shaping up to be another busy month with the start of another #swimintospring event - the Kick Start Adult Swim Program 10 October - 16 November, then there is the Kyabram Long Distance Meet on the 15 – 16 October and the Glamourhead Sharks Interclub Swim Meet and Trifle Competition coming up on the 22 October.

Last but not least, keep 10 December free for the MSV 40th Birthday Party. We hope you enjoy the MSV news update.

Swim into Spring – the new season has started. You can renew or join with a 4 or 16 month membership now. 12 month memberships will open on December 1st. Want to join/renew or recommend joining to your friends then check out MSV's website.
Masters Swimming Australia has launched Swim into Spring to raise awareness of Masters Swimming clubs around Australia. We encourage you to support your local clubs by promoting their events and using the #swimintospring hashtag in your social media post and to share our posts as well.  Swim into Spring events being run by MSV include the Freestyle stroke correction clinics in Warrnambool Sept 24 and 25, a Kick Start series starting in October (see below links for more information) as well as two Open Water Swim clinics in November and December. These are gradually being added to the event calendar and will be advertised on Facebook once the event is live on the website.
