Summer Season Looking Good For Kooty Club

Welcome to all our members , new and old for another season with Kootingal Moonbi Swimming Club. The summer season has started with some mixed weather but i am sure we will get our fair share of hot weather as the season progresses. It has been great to see so many new members join our great club this season and also the return of many of last years members back for 2018/19.

Our club is lucky to have  Kootingal Hotel as our Major Sponsor. A big thank you to Andrew and everyone at the Kootingal Hotel for supporting our swim club. We look forward to having a great year and with the support of the Kootingal Hotel it will certainly be a great benefit to all of us. I ask all our members , families and friends to call into the Kooty Hotel and say hello , have a quiet lemonade or two and even dine out with some delicious  meals at  great prices. Also thankyou to our other sponsors and supporters , McDonalds ( Natalie Scanlon ),

Our training is underway with some great numbers at our Mini Squads and fantastic numbers at all our other squads. Club Night/Pointscore has started as well with awesome numbers ( approx 90 ) turning up each Tuesday evening which is encouraging to see.

The club carnivals in the Area have also started with some great times being swum by many of our swimmers . Our Kootingal Moonbi Club Carnival in December 2018 and i am sure all our swimmers are looking forward to swimming well on this day against all the other swimmers from around our region.

Good luck to everyone this season. I hope you all have an excellent season , improve your swimming and achieve your goals.
