Kawana Waters Swimming Club membership is for a period of 12 months commencing from the first of July of each year. All swimmers must be registered with Wide Bay Swimming Association, Swimming Queensland and Swimming Australia. At the same time, the parents or guardians of the swimmer(s) are also encouraged to become members of the Club (at no additional cost).
Kawana Waters Swimming Club is registered with the QLD Government as part of its ‘Get Started’ program. The FairPlay program is one of three initiatives by the QLD Government to support grassroots sport and recreation by providing financial assistance to eligible children and young people to assist them in joining a sport or recreation club.
To register as a new member of Kawana Waters Swimming Club, please visit the Swimming QLD member registration website to begin the registration process. When completing the registration, select Region – Wide Bay SA Inc and Club – Kawana Waters Swim Club and pay the registration fees (current season registration fees are listed below) during the process. Once completed, the Club Registrar will need to sight a copy of each registered swimmers’ birth certificate.
All swimmers, under the age of 18, are required to have at least one parent or guardian be registered as a member (using the same link above) to be covered by insurance when volunteering. There are no fees for parent / guardian registration.
For all current/renewing members, members are to follow the instructions in the renewal email received from Swimming Queensland. This email is sent by Swimming Queensland in July and is to be completed through Swim Central.
All members are also encouraged to read the following from Swimming Australia:
