Welcome to the Electric Eels Swimming Club web site. Our web site is the backbone of our communication strategy to keep its members informed and up to date of its activities and opportunities. We trust you enjoy the site and treat the information available as sensitive to the clubs welfare.
Our club held its first AGM as a sub-committee of the Zillmere State School P&C in 1976 (hence the birth of the swimming club). In 2003 the committee of the club elected to become Incorporated and registration was filed with the Queensland Office of Fair Trading as ‘Electric Eels Swim Club Incorporated’. Today the club operates under the same core values of friendliness, opportunity and inclusion as they did back in 1974, however in broad terms the club acts as an independent organisation with the same legal entitlement of any individual ie we are no longer governed and reliant on the auspices of the school P&C committee and our actions and activities are also independent of the P&C committee.
Our core activity remains our club night social, fun and fitness event, our success at regional and state level has improved. A number of our members regularly compete in friendly (non-affiliated) carnivals and in Swimming Queensland sanction carnivals whilst our elite few have enjoyed success at regional and state championships.
The future is extremely bright with many plans for more opportunity on their way – and we invite you all to be part of it!
