Welcome to the Chandler Swimming Club 

The Chandler Swimming Club Incorporation has been prominent in local, state and national swimming since its official inception back in 1981.

 

Chandler SC Inc can trace its history back to a swimming club that was known as the ‘Carina Amateur Swimming Club’ during the 1960s and 1970s. The swimmers, trained at the Carina pool, an outside, unheated facility only a few kilometres from Chandler SC Inc's current home, Sleeman Sports Complex.

 

When the Sleeman Sports Complex was built for the 1982 Commonwealth Games, the ‘Carina Amateur Swimming Club’ won the right to lease lanes of the new 50 metre, heated, indoor pool, and so, relocated. The change of location led to a name change and the club became the ‘Chandler Swimming Club’.

Our History and Mission Statement

Chandler Swimming Club Inc has had several swimmers and coaches represent their country over the years; Jodie Henry, Alice Mills, Jessica Ashwood, Meg Harris, Jack McLoughlin, Libby Trickett, Shayna Jack, David McKeon, Daniel Fox to name a few. We currently have active swimmers who have made various Australian (Jnr & Snr) teams, some of which include Zac Stubblety-Cook, Cate Campbell and Rachael Watson. The success of our junior and senior Australian team members is indicative of the way we strive for success across all levels.

 

The Chandler Swimming Club Inc and its coaching staff aim to provide a place for young people to develop, not only as swimmers but also as confident, healthy, and independent individuals. 
The club endeavours to provide a strong foundation from where every swimmer can go on to achieve their full potential, carrying the lessons learnt, through with them for the remainder of their lives. 
It is the club’s intent that each and every member enjoys this journey.

OUR CURRENT SPONSORS


Chandler Swimming Club could not provide our team members access to one of Australia's premier swimming programs and the best aquatic facility in Queensland, without the generous support of our incredible sponsors.

Unlike many other swimming programs, we are run as a Not for Profit sporting organisation, meaning we are self-funded entirely by our squad membership fees and the generous donations of our club sponsors. This foundation has allowed our club to continually build success on a State, National and International level, and our rich history of success is entirely dependent on the contribution of our swimmers, professional coaching staff, parents, families and dedicated volunteer committee members.
