Two of the most important aspects of being involved in the Playford Aquatic Club is good communication between the coach, swimmer and parents and the effective distribution of information to families by the coach and the club.

Seasonal meetings will be held for each squad where the coach will provide information to parents and swimmers including competition schedules.

If a swimmer or parent has any questions or concerns, they are asked to speak to their coach.


The Club uses a number of communication methods to keep members up to date;


Email – Emails are our main form of communication with our Members. Please ensure the Club has an up to date email address to contact you. If you need to update your email address please contact the CLUB SECERTARY.


Notice Board – Relevant information regarding upcoming meets can be found on the Club Notice Board.
