Southside Aquatics expands to second venue

12 Nov 2018


It is with great excitement that we announce Absolute Aquatics and Southside Aquatics (SSA) have successfully tendered for the John Paul College (JPC) swimming contract commencing from 1 January 2019. This means that Southside Aquatics will be the competitive vehicle for swimmers at Redeemer Lutheran College and John Paul College. Our Head Coach Lachlan Staples will oversee both venues; however he will continue to be based at Redeemer Lutheran College. 


This is a fantastic development for Southside Aquatics swimmers who now have guaranteed year-round lane space and less downtime in the event that the Redeemer or JPC pool is out of action.


It also allows for more racing and club nights for our swimmers to develop race experience and promote the team environment. SSA will now also have the opportunity to host swim carnivals at the JPC pool which will be a valuable fundraising activity.


Junior training programs will be mirrored at both Redeemer and JPC venues. Senior Training Programs will split time between both facilities.
