Significant upgrade as new swimming blocks installed at Corrimal swimming pool

Junior swimmers arriving at Corrimal swimming pool for the summer season have been greeted by new Olympic-standard blocks. The pool regularly hosts Illawarra school and club meets and the new blocks give swimmers the opportunity to become accustomed to the equipment before they compete at major meets in Sydney and around the country.

State of the art: New swimming blocks have been installed at Corrimal swimming pool to enable junior swimmers to train with the blocks they will use at major championships.

“Swimmers will benefit in that the swimming blocks are up to date, so when they go to the next level of competition, they’ve already experienced the state of art equipment that they have at Homebush.” Corrimal Swim Club President Sue Smyth said. “These blocks will allow the club coach, Tracey Waters, to prepare the swimmers for future success at country, state and national levels.”

NSW Member for Keira Ryan Park officially opened the new blocks and praised the club for providing new opportunities for the region’s swimmers. “We have some very competitive swimmers at Corrimal Swim club, and now they will be able to train with blocks that they compete with.” Mr Park said.

The Corrimal Swim Club Friday night point score competition has commenced for the season and all new swimmers are welcome. Swimmers are able to trial two nights of racing for free. For more information, contact corrimalswimclub@gmail.com.
