All our members are encouraged to compete in a range of different events and meets.

  • Friday Night Club Meets - Our main focus as a club; weekly competition for our members focus on improving individual performances. Events are seeded on time, not age or gender. A range of events for all abilities 12.5m, 25m, 50m & 100m events in all strokes are regularly scheduled (see our club handbook for our 2016/17 program of events). Swimmers progress from 12.5m to 25m events based on the Referees judgement of them to complete the stroke correctly; progression to 50m events is based on time standards that are published in our handbook. points are accrued throughout the season to crown the Club Champion and Champions in specific strokes.
  • Candy Meets - special meets held for under 10's swimmers - no times, no ribbons just fun, friends and swimming (maybe a few treats)
  • Inter-club carnivals - throughout the season SHSC compete against other Swim Clubs for the glory of different Trophies and Shields. SHSC hosted meet is the Clayton Owen Memorial Shield held in early November each year.
  •  Competitive Swimming - SHSC competes in the Brisbane Swimming Association competition in the Second Division. We have a competitive team of swimmers who compete for qaulification at Brisbane and State Championship meets - see coach Robby or email race.sec@seals.org.au to get involved.
