As the EnergyAustralia GO Swim Month nears the half-way mark, there are still plenty of clubs from all across Australia getting ready to roll out their GO Swim Day activities.
West Australia will have their turn tomorrow, Sunday 14 October, with four-time Junior Pan Pacs silver medallist Brianna Throssell heading to the City of Gosnells Leisure World to join in the fun.
The 16-year-old City of Perth swimmer picked up her maiden national title at the EnergyAustralia Short Course Championships in Perth last month, winning the 100m butterfly and gaining selection for her first senior team for the World Short Course Championships in Turkey this December.
Throssell credits joining a swim club with her success as a swimmer, and love of the sport.
”Joining a club surrounds you with people all trying to achieve a similar goal, friendships developed through club swimming take your mind off the intense training and help you be the best swimmer you can be,” Throssell said.
The EnergyAustralia GO Swim Day will give the kids the opportunity to see what can be achieved through club swimming.
Starting from 11:00am this Sunday, the club will host novelty races and mixed relays as well as individual events for those interested in competitive racing.
Throssell will be on hand to share her tips and knowledge and show people how enjoyable club swimming can be.
EnergyAustralia Director, Adrian Merrick says the energy provider is proud to be supporting GO Swim month and Australia’s favourite summer pastime, swimming.
“In partnership with Swimming Australia we will seek out new and innovative opportunities for our customers, to support elite Australian swimmers to achieve their goals and promote safe and healthy swimming for Australian families,” Mr Merrick says.
