Squad Training

Pioneer Swim Club members train at Pioneer Swim Centre, Malcolmson St North Mackay throughout the competitive season.


The development of our swimmers is expertly guided by Head Coach Shaana Witherspoon.

Squad sessions are run by Belgravia Leisure and squad fees are payable directly to them.

Competitive Swimming

Swimming on a competitive level is fast-paced and fun! Joining a swim squad is a great way to meet new people, catch up with friends and stay fit and healthy All in a cool water environment. Squad classes are held morning and evening, so swimmers will need to discuss with their coach what sessions they should attend.

We pride ourselves on being family-friendly too, so all programs offer discounts for additional children.
