CLUB HISTORY

Beavers Swim Club is a community-based independent swimming club formed in 1994. We are committed to promoting and encouraging swimming in all sectors of the communities in which we operate from Learn to Swim  through to Masters and Disabled swimming.

 

Today our registered membership exceeds 150 and we are based in the Hillary/Malvern area but serve several other districts to the south of Durban.. Our pool in Queensburgh is heated for all year round training. Beavers stages an annual Winter Short Course Gala held at Kings Park SC pool in Durban at the end of August annually. Funds generated through various company sponsorships’ as well as the gala entry fees generated from the participating clubs. Funds generated are used for the purpose of upgrading our facilities and to assist our swimmers in as many ways as we can.

In terms of our goals and mission statement we have resolved to address the imbalances of previously marginalized children and youth in the sports code of swimming with a particular emphasis on the development of such children to be role models and champions that we could be proud of in the years to come.
