Swimming at VG is tiered to suit all abilities and skill levels.  For those that are competitive in nature there is the 1st team squad who train three times a week, and compete in the league galas.  For girls who have a good stroke or swimming style, and enjoy keeping fit there is the 2nd team squad; for those who are still gaining confidence in some strokes, or mastering the dreaded tumble turns there is intermediate swimming.  For the girls who are complete novices there are a number of beginner’s swimming groups where the girls are coached by a teacher and senior swimmers so that they can learn to swim.

Swimming is amazing!


Spar Ladies River Mile Swim 2014

On 16th February six intrepid team swimmers participated in the 90th Annual Spar River Mile Swim.  This event was formerly swum in the Red House River, but due to increased pollution it has been relocated to the Sundays River.  There were a total of 341 women from 8 to 65 years in age who participated in this year’s event; so it was no mean feat for our team swimmers to complete the swim.  This year the wind was blowing downstream, so the water was very choppy, that coupled with the heat, and many contestants made for a tough race.  Well done to Leticia du Preez, Jordan Fischer, Emma and Liza Goodes, Abby Vos and Danielle Walker on their successful swim!
