Swimming Squads

Malvern Academy of Swimming

When your child completes the Learn to Swim program at the Harold Holt Swim Centre, they have the option to continue swimming with the Malvern Academy of Swimming (MAS). They offer both competitive and non-competitive squad swimming.

The squad's unique program caters for swimmers who range in ability, from post Learn to Swim Program through to a national level. The program allows swimmers to enjoy exercising by developing a passion for swimming which can boost self-confidence, provide opportunities for social interaction and offer a chance to have fun.

Founded in 1990, the 'Malvern Marlins' is a Masters Swimming Australia affiliated Masters Swimming Club whose members swim for fitness, friendship and fun.

Based at the Harold Holt Swim Centre, the club is one of the largest in Victoria. The Marlins offer four morning and two evening coached training sessions, and one endurance swimming session each week. They welcome new members, aged 18 and above.

Many members enjoy participating in our squads purely to improve their fitness and technique, while others enjoy the fun, atmosphere and challenge of competing in both pool and open water events. The Marlins have a history of success in competitions from interclub through to international level.

Social activities are also an important part of being a member of the Marlins. Dinners, barbecues and movie nights are organised regularly, as well as informal after-training get-togethers for coffee, drinks or pizza.
