Welcome to Swimming @ Waverley

Waverley College Swimming Training program aims to build fitness and skill in the swimmers at the College as they prepare for Combined Associated Schools (CAS) Championships held at Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre in March each year. The program is conducted by qualified and experienced coaches, who train selected boys from Year 5 through to Year 12 during term 1 and term 4 at the Waverley College Aquatic Centre. Boys have an opportunity to train Monday to Thursday morning, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon.

Throughout the swimming season boys participate in a Junior or Senior School carnival and up to six invitational meets. In term one; boys are selected for the Waverley Swim Squad, which competes at Christian Brothers Sporting Association and CAS Championship Carnivals. The Swimming Supporters Club, made up predominately of parents, provides invaluable assistance to the running of the swimming program.
