Pool Entry – Friday Night Swim Club
Mingara Aquatic Centre are a major sponsor of Mingara Aquatic Swimming Club. They do not charge the club any fee for the use of the pool and the staff required to run the pool on a Friday evening. However, all our swimming members are required to pay a discounted pool entry fee at the front desk upon arrival at the pool of $3. This is a fee seperate to any gym, squad or other membership.
In order to finish the race evenings on time, we require many helpers. In fairness to all, we like to see family members, on a rotation basis, helping out at club night each week.
When arriving at the pool, no children will be admitted to the centre unless they are accompanied by an adult – children will be required to wait at the front desk until an adult arrives, even if it results in the swimmer/s missing their race.
