what our members are saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our members do the talking!

“I swim with the Orcas for fitness in an environment that values the importance of having fun. The club is run professionally and the coaching sets are dynamic to enable each of us to swim to the best of our ability. The Orcas have been friendly and inclusive from the very start and the enthusiasm of the members is contagious and is sure to keep me motivated!”

frequently asked questions

Are there any requirements to joining?
You need to be eighteen years and older and capable of swimming a few hundred metres continuously. Be aware that although stroke correction is provided these are not swimming lessons. You must be a reasonably competent swimmer looking to improve your technique and fitness.
What times do you train?

We train during the Victorian school terms on three regular nights and suits those with busy lives who can’t train mornings or weekends due to other commitments.

Monday: 8:30pm–9:45pm

Wednesday: 8:30pm–9:45pm

Friday: 7:30pm–9pm

Do I need specialist equipment?
We occasionally use training aids during our sessions but there’s no need to rush out and buy any items right away. If anything we may have some loan equipment for you to use. Over time you may wish to look at purchasing your own equipment. As a minimum you may like to consider purchasing fins, pull buoy and paddles.
Am I required to compete?
We try our best to encourage as many members as possible but there is no requirement to compete. In fact, only a small percentage of our members compete in local and State meets, with even fewer attending National swim meets.
Are there additional fees?

Membership consists of three separate fees:

Annual Membership Fees New members pay an annual fee of $104, which includes all Masters Swimming registration charges. A discount applies to our members based on length of membership as well as youth memberships for swimmers aged under 25 as at 31 December of that current year.

Coaching Fees In addition to the annual membership fee you also pay for coaching fees each term. Term squad fees are due and payable at the beginning of each school term. There are three levels of fees depending on the amount of training you prefer, these include:

1 session per week (per school term): $50

2 or 3 sessions per week (per school term): $90

10 sessions pass (to be used at any time): $55

Pool Entry Fee Pool entry fee also applies and rates are set by Aqualink Nunawading. Check their website for entry and membership fees.

Competition Fees For the more serious swimmers who wish to compete, a seperate competition fee is payable to the club that is organising the event. Check competition registration forms for further details. The average competition fees ranges between $20 and $50 per swim meet.

What social activities do you offer?

On the last Friday of every month we organise a social event after training and head to a local restaurant for a bite and a drink.

We also have two annual events, a social dinner in May for our Annual General Meeting and our Christmas party held around the first weekend of December.

From time-to-time we may also organise one-off events such as open water training or social swims.
