Sign-up for the McGowan Relay
We have experienced a wonderful summer season so far and while it is nearing the end, there is much to look forward to. One of the highlights of the season is always the McGowan Relay.
This event is being run following our Club Meet 5 on Friday 6 March so turn up from 5.30pm to warm up and check out the competition.
The McGowan Relay is a fun relay event that always brings plenty of excitement and thrilling racing to the pool. It’s the one chance our youngest members get to race in a team and take on some of the older members. So, get a team of four together, or just come down on the afternoon and we’ll find you a team to swim with. Swimmers can be current club members, their parents, siblings or friends (non-members).
Teams are seeded according to handicaps and the first swimmer of each team is given their start handicap time. After each heat, handicap times are re-calculated, and heats are swum until there are only eight teams left to swim off for the trophy.
McGowan Relay Registration: you can either email the names of your team members (and their 50m freestyle times if you know them) to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can just register on the afternoon.
So who will have their team name or individual name forever etched on the Peter McGowan Shield?
- Nicholas Pereira (Year 9) was selected for the WA Black Swans State team for futsal (U13s) and recently played in the national competition in Canberra. In 2019 he played for the State side too so this is the second consecutive year that he has been selected. Well done!
- Congratulations Sydney Poor (Year 10) who has been selected in the Australian U16 water polo squad. This squad has been selected to prepare for the World Championships being held in Greece and Pan Pacs in NZ. She was one of seven Western Australians chosen.
