ASA National Championships


December 19th - Christmas Show had "Movies" as its theme.

"This is the time of the year to look back at the past year and remind ourselves of all the hard work by swimmers and their coaches and the results we have achieved. The year would not have been possible without hard work of our Head Coach Di Hughes, Chief Choreographer Kate Coupar and their teams, who supported by our committee are doing a great job and our thanks go to all of them"
