Friends of Swimming

Parent Support Group

Established in 2018, Friends of Swimming is the parent support group for BGS Swimming.

The BGS Swim Team is a small but growing group of dedicated swimmers from beginners though to National Age competitors.

We are honoured to have BGS Old Boy and three-time Olympic medallist Andrew Lauterstein as our patron. There will be opportunities for the boys to meet and interact with Andrew throughout the season.

Purpose

Friends of Swimming aims to preserve and foster the spirit of swimming and facilitate opportunities for parents, supporters and past swimmers to socialise and share experiences.  Key to the success of the group is ongoing fundraising to financially assist with new equipment and support activities such as the annual January Swim Camp and Swimmer of the Week Awards.

You can find us poolside, early on a Thursday morning, preparing fresh egg & bacon rolls for the boys at completion of their training.  The smile on their faces says it all.

Patron

We are honoured to have BGS Old Boy and three-time Olympic medallist, Andrew Lauterstein as our patron. Andrew will be available throughout the season, providing opportunities for the boys to meet and interact.

Andrew Lauterstein (OB 2005) talks to the Friends of Swimming at the 2019 season launch.

How to get involved

We encourage all swimming parents to become financial members of Friends of Swimming and help support the boys.
