Tuggeranong Vikings Swim Club Inc.
The Tuggeranong Vikings Swim Club is a community based swimming club which was founded in 1991 and currently has over 150 members. Vikings offers training and stroke correction for all levels of swimmers from beginners through to NSW Country, State and National level representatives.
All squad sessions take place at the indoor heated pool at Tuggeranong Lakeside Leisure Centre in Greenway, ACT, adjacent to the Tuggeranong Town Centre. TVSC’s competitive squads are strong and successful, boasting National, State and Country medallists and finalists amongst their current membership.
Although members are encouraged to take part in local and interstate swim meets, competition is not mandatory. We appreciate that our members have many reasons for swimming – to fulfil competition goals, train for fitness and/or other sports, or to enjoy the social side of swimming.
Our Club aims to promote and encourage swimming and to allow each individual to develop their full swimming potential and to provide a family oriented swimming environment characterised by regular, structured training and regular club social activities. We believe that all swimmers, regardless of ability level, are special, and deserve the opportunity to succeed, both in their swimming careers and personal development.
In 2014 Vikings won the ACT Championships, finished 1st at the NSW Country Long Course Championships, 10th at the NSW 12&U Stage Age Long Course Championships and 5th at the 13&O NSW State Age Long Course Championships, 1st at the NSW Short Course Championships, 3rd at the NSW State Age Short Course Championships and 4th at the NSW Open Short Course Championships– the highest of any ACT Team at all these events.
