Welcome to Gisborne Thunder's Web Site

Welcome to Gisborne Thunder!  We are affiliated with Swimming Victoria and Central Victoria Swimming (District 15), and completely run by members on a non-profit basis for the benefit of club members and the wider community.  The club currently has more than 60 members covering the range of abilities from learn-to-swim through to

State and National representatives.  This club web site has been developed as a resource for our club members, and to provide a brief introduction for people interested in swimming at our club.  The committee hopes you find it useful.  Of course, if you are unsure about any aspects, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

See you at the pool!
Anne Diver (President)

Well done to all award winners at the Club Presentation Night held on 28th April.  The final results for the Point-score competition are now available on our Club Meets page.  We look forward to seeing everyone at our first club night of the new season on 13th May.  Please note that the AGM will be held prior to the racing on this night.

The Club Championships for 2017 are done and dusted.  Some great racing was observed.  The times from the night are now available on our Club Meets page. The point-score race has gone "in-camera" until the club presentation night.  All point-score winners have been determined and will be awarded at the presentation night.

Congratulations to our new Club Captains Izabella and Kyle.

The club's new Committee has been elected at the AGM held on Saturday 14th May.  Check who they are on this page.

Well done to our young swimmers that represented Gisborne Thunder at the Country All Junior Championships over the weekend of 9-10 April.  Outstanding performances were achieved by Charlotte Matthews (Gold: 8/Under 50 Fly) and Darcy Smith (Silver: 10/Under 50 Free, Bronze: 10/Under 50 Fly).  Other finalists were Kiera Cooper, Isabella Crawford and Dempsey Smith.

An excellent group of 49 swimmers participated at the February Club Night which was our best turn-out for several months.  The results are now available on our Club Meets page.


GO CLUB PB 2014:  We are very pleased to announce that Gisborne Thunder has achieved SILVER level for the past season. 

The GO Club PB is the national swimming club standard that recognises and rewards swimming clubs by measuring their performance across five key areas (memberships, administration, activities, coaching and officiating, marketing and promotion).  Depending on the level achieved, the benefits of participating in the GO Club PB include recognition, evaluation of strength and weaknesses, rewards pack, eligibility for cash and equipment grants, access to an appearance from a member of the Australian Swim Team and/or a mentor coach, etc.

In 2010 (our first year) we were rated as "Entry Level".  2011 saw us raised to "Bronze Level", and for the past three seasons we have been rated "Silver Level".  This is a result of hard work by our club committee, coach and parent volunteers over several years. 

For more information, see the Swimming Australia web site.
