Club Membership Information

2008 Perth World Champs team

We are a "masters" swimming club for adults, aged 18 years and over, and our club is part of the worldwide community of Masters swimmers.

Our members come from a variety of backgrounds: some are fresh out of age-group competition, others have only recently learned to swim, and others have only taken up swimming again after a break.

Because of this, we have a variety of abilities and training requirements ranging from social swimmers (some do more talking than swimming) through to national champions. This includes pool swimmers, open-water swimmers and triathletes.

Club Membership

Our insurance now requires everyone in our training sessions to be a club member, although you have 4 free come-and-try sessions in the first month before you have to join.

If you wish to compete at Masters Swimming events (except for Masters Games), you must be a member of a club registered with Masters Swimming.

Club membership includes registration with Masters Swimming Victoria ("MSV") and Masters Swimming Australia ("MSA").

Membership Categories

There are 4 membership categories:

Full Membership

This is the "standard" membership type, available to anyone aged 18 or over.

Youth Membership

This is available to anyone aged 18 to 25, and is at a discounted rate. Note that you may need to provide proof of your age (ie. any form of ID which has your date of birth on it).

Swimming Victoria Members

Anyone who is already registered as a Swimming Victoria member may select this category, which is at a discounted rate.

Second Claim Membership

If you are already registered as a member of another MSA club, you can choose to list us as your second club so that you can compete as a Casey Seal if you wish (eg. for relays). Please contact us or the MSV office if you wish to take this up.

Membership Fees

The membership registration fees (including Club, MSV, MSA and 3% credit card fees) for the remainder of 2024 are:

6-month full membership 1 June 2024  to 31 Dec 2024: $94.63

Membership benefits

  • Participate in club activities, including training sessions
  • Compete in sanctioned sprint and long distance competitions, which include interclub, state and national meets
  • Insurance cover while engaged in any Masters Swimming or Casey Seals activity

Masters Swimming

Masters Swimming Australia, previously known as AUSSI Masters Swimming, was established in 1976 and has the motto of swimming for "Fitness, Friendship and Fun". There are currently more than 1,000 members in Victoria and over 7,000 around Australia.

You certainly don't have to be a star swimmer to compete, especially in the smaller interclub meets which are fun and often informal events with a supper afterwards.

In most Master Swimming competitions, you will be placed into heats with other swimmers of a similar standard based on the entry time that you put in, regardless of your age and gender. This way you don't have to be embarrassed about not being one of the fastest swimmers.

You don't even have to know how to dive - you can start in the water if you'd prefer.

Remember that the emphasis in Masters Swimming is participation and having fun, rather than winning.

How to Join

Joining is easy - just go to the Membership page on the Masters Swimming Australia (MSA) website.

The MSA Membership page has information about membership and fees, as well as links to join or renew your membership. The links will take you into the registration system where you can join as a new member, or re-register if you're already a member. From there you just need to follow the prompts.

You can also pay your registration fee at the same time through the MSV Member Portal.
