Finding a club

The best way to get into the sport of swimming is to join a Swimming Club.

Swimming Victoria has a network of more than 140 registered clubs across Victoria. To find the nearest club to where you are, you can check the Swimming Australia Swim Finder

Make sure to get in touch with your chosen Swimming Club to ensure that they will be able to offer you a swimming program that will suit your needs.

Joining a registered club and Swimming Victoria

All of our swimming clubs should be able to instruct you on how to join them via Swim Central. Prior to signing up you will need to know which club membership package you will need to purchase (this can change from club to club) and whether you are required to also purchase a guardian membership. (see below)

When joining a registered club you will automatically join Swimming Victoria and Swimming Australia and you will be able to access our members’ benefits

For further information please contact your club representative or Swimming Victoria on 03 9230 9400 or via email at:

You can join your swimming club via Swim Central. For further instructions on how to join please refer to our Swim Central Resources. Both these links are available on our home page

Membership Fees

Swimming Victoria has published the 2019/20 Schedule of Fees. This includes fees charged by Swimming Victoria to members. Most clubs charge club membership fees on top of the amount indicated and this can be discussed directly with the club.


Parent/Guardian Members

As the 1st July 2019, the Swimming Victoria Board made it a mandatory requirement for all members under the age 18 to have a dry member registered as well. The reason for this is to ensure we have the correct contact details as we can no longer talk to minors directly. By having the guardian members registered it also increases the cyber security we offer and protects the junior member in the online environment. In addition to this it also enables the family to have a vote at their clubs AGM’s and provides insurance for the guardian should they volunteer at the club.
