Good luck to our Fairymead swimmers swimming at the Burnet Fraser Development meet this weekend. This is a great meet for our up and coming champions. So good luck swimmers, and don’t forget to wear your club shirt and cap. A big thank you also goes out to many of our swimmers not swimming at this carnival. They are actually running the carnival and the adults are assisting. What a great experience for everyone! GO FAIRYMEAD!

QLd State Champs update.

Look out Qld, here comes Fairymead!
As a club, we had some pretty awesome swims on relay day. Many of our juniors swam enormous PB’s and came so close to medaling. It was a fun day and a great experience for all who attended. Some of our swimmers also made Wide Bay Relay teams. Wide Bay did really well bringing home an amazing 12 medals. And YES, some of those medals were brought home by our Fairymead swimmers! A big congratulations goes out to ALL swimmers!

Individually, we are doing well with all swimmers doing amazing PB’s and feeling the success of their hard work. A number of swimmers have made finals and have been very pleased with their swims. Kyle Rethamel swam an amazing 200 fly to take the silver medal….and what a race it was! Well done Kyle.

We have many mores swims to come yet, and I am sure a few more medals will come our way. Best of luck for the rest of the week swimmers. We are ALL cheering!

Qld State Championships!

We have a bus load of swimmers going down to Brisbane for the State Relay Day on Saturday. This is an awesome day and something I am sure all swimmers will remember! Relay Day is about team work, and is a lot of fun. I am sure the bus trip down and back will be be terrific too. To all of our swimmers travelling to Brisbane next Saturday, we wish you the best of luck. I am sure the Fairymead Green and Gold will be noticed! A big Good luck also to our senior swimmers staying on in Brisbane to compete in individual events the following week. You guys have been training very hard for this event, and I am sure you will all do well! GO FAIRYMEAD! ……and kids, don’t forget to thank your coach Scottie for organising so many relay teams to compete on relay day. …….thanks also to all of the Fairymead families who have helped on the Saturday BBQ to generate the funds needed to allow so many kids to swim at this event.

City of Charm……what a Carnival!

WOW! What a weekend. Thank you to all of our Fairymead families for helping out with the immense task of running this carnival. Without your help, City of Charm just wouldn’t happen. This year’s carnival was a huge success. The competition was fierce and our swimmers shone. PB’s came thick and fast, medals were won and records fell. The names of Fairymead swimmers were ringing out loud and clear. Well Done Fairymead. Both our swimmers and parents deserve a big pat on there back. Thank You!

City of Charm……are we ready!

Well everyone, the count down is on. Our very own City of Charm swimming carnival is on this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and it is shaping up to be a good one! Our swimmers have been training hard and will all be hoping for some good PB’s. I am sure we will see some awesome swimming. Parents, we still need your help with baking, raffle prizes and assistance on the day. There are lots of jobs to be done and the old saying, “many hands make light work” really does apply. This carnival is an A grade carnival and traditionally attracts some pretty high class swimmers from all around the State. For those families new to Fairymead, this is the carnival to come and watch. Get involved, watch some swimming, and be part of the Fairymead family. Club nights are great…….City of Charm is spectacular.

Good luck swimmers!

Congratulations Fairymead Swimmers

CONGRATULATIONS FAIRYMEAD SWIMMERS! We had a very large team of swimmers compete at Maryborough – Heritage City swim meet today. Each and every one of our swimmmers shone. From our ambitious little juniors; Grace and Harrison, to our big guys; Tash, Kyle and Caleb….and all those in between. We had loads of PB’s achieved, heaps of medals won, lots of records achieved and a number of age champion towels brought home. It was a great day out and we are proud of each and every swimmer. Well done Fairymead.


Spread the word…….Club night starts back on Monday 7th October. Nominations taken at the door. Racing starts at 6pm. The BBQ will sell burgers and sausages for those hungry swimmers and their families. Bring your togs, bring your goggles, and we’ll see you there. FUN FUN FUN!!!!
