Superfins WA Inc is a swimming club for people with disabilities. The club caters for swimmers at all levels, from beginner swimmers to those participating in international competitions.

Regular social activities and events hosted by the Club encourage personal development and growth of lifelong friendships. 

Telethon Superfins Learn to Swim Program

Superfins Learn to Swim (LTS) program was set up in 2010 as a pilot program to assess the need for quality swimming lessons for school aged children with disabilities and also to act as a feeder program for the Club’s squad program. It operates from Lords Recreation Centre in Subiaco on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons during school term time. We have also run a week long daily holiday program each year either in December or October, which has also been very successful. In 2015 the program was renamed Telethon Superfins LTS in recognition of the support received from Telethon. In 2017, Telethon Superfins LTS became a Gold level AUSTSWIM Recognised Swim Centre.

 

Squad

Superfins has two squads, Stroke Development and Seniors, which train at HBF stadium in Mt Claremont and offer squad based training for any person with physical or intellectual/learning disability. To be eligible to take part, swimmers must be able to meet the basic requirements of the club. These include being able to swim 50m in at least two recognised strokes with correct technique, being comfortable in deep water (all pools at HBF are 2m deep) and to enjoy being in a group environment.

Stroke Development Squad

The Stroke Development Squad (SD) is aimed at swimmers who are keen to improve technique and fitness and learn new drills and skills. It is also designed to help swimmers who wish to progress towards competitive swimming and graduate to the Senior squad once skills and fitness allow.

SD swimmers train Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings doing three one hour sessions per week.

Senior Squad

The Senior Squad (SNR) is for those swimmers who are competent in most strokes and can readily perform skills and drills and are able to manage reasonable distances each session.

SNR swimmers train on Monday and Wednesday evenings (1.5 hours each session) and on Saturdays (1 hour).

Social

Superfins motto of ‘Fun, Fitness, Friendship’ goes well beyond the pool in the many and varied social activities we hold each year. These include disco’s, quiz nights, 10 pin bowling, movie nights, annual awards dinner/dance, an active Group Bookings schedule to theatre and live shows and several annual camps.
