Our History
The club was formed in 1977 and was known as the Illawarra Red Devils Swimming Club. In 2002 the club changed its name to Wests Illawarra Aquatic Swim Club.

Affiliation
Wests Illawarra Aquatic Swim Club is an affiliated member of South Eastern Swimming Association (SESA), Swimming NSW and  Swimming Australia. We also have affiliation with the Wests Illawarra Leagues Club who generously support us with financial assistance.

 

Club Administration
The Wests Illawarra Aquatic Swim Club is run as a non-profit amateur sporting body. The Club is an Incorporated body under the NSW Corporations Act. and as such, has a number of duties and responsibilities to fulfil. A major part of Incorporation is to have a legal and workable Constitution, along with a very comprehensive set of By-Laws that cover all aspects of the day to day running of the club. The By-Laws are constantly reviewed and updated to reflect current Club practice and thinking. Should you wish to obtain a copy of the Constitution and By-Laws, please contact the Club Secretary. The Club is administered by a committee which is elected at the Annual General Meeting in September each year. All activities, financial or otherwise, are reported to monthly committee meetings and annually to the Annual General Meeting of the Club.

Meetings
For anyone interested in supporting the Club with ideas or assistance, meetings offer a great opportunity for members to come along and have their say. It’s also a good way to find out what is happening in the club and an opportunity to address any uncertainties or problems you may be experiencing. Monthly meetings are held at our ClubHouse, Unanderra Pool.

Membership
The annual fees for each season are set at the Clubs AGM in September of each year. These fees provide club membership from 1 October to 30 September each year. The current membership fees can be found here.

Club Captains
Each year, a male and female junior and senior club captain is elected and announced at our Summer Presentation. The club captains perform many duties, including officiating at Club Activities and supporting our club swimmers.

Club Uniform
We encourage all members to look and feel like a united team, and wear the club uniform proudly. The Wests Illawarra Aquatic colours are navy, red and white.  The Red Devil is our emblem. Great effort has been made to keep all items available at a reasonable cost in attempt to encourage members to wear Club gear. Even though uniforms are not compulsory, we do ask that our swimmers wear their club swim cap. Contact our Uniform Co-ordinator – be part of the team.
