Re-engage & Re-connect

The Australian Swimmers' Association is extremely keen to grow the swimming family alumni and are always looking for new members, membership sign up can be found here.

It is widely acknowledged that as a sport, swimming does a poor job of maintaining contact with its retired members. The Australian Swimmers' Association (ASA) believe this is an area we are well suited too and in turn are endeavouring to make positive changes in this area.

We have recently started hositng past swimmer functions outside of the usual social catch up's during National Championships.

With such a vast swimming network out there with years and years of experience, both in and out of the pool we want to ensure our members can benefit from this.
