A great day for swimming at our home meet
On a near perfect Sunday, the club held its Annual Sprint Meet, with some added wrinkles of some 400m events. 210 swimmers,
including a strong contingent from Melbourne produced some great racing with some very fast times set. 11 meet records
were broken and the home team performed very well, taking a total of 97 medals including 43 gold. The team was led by Rebecca Holmes,
Kate Jordan, Jacob Waller and Matthew Slot who all claimed 4 gold medals, with 3 gold medals each won by Isabella Symons, Maggie Skewes and

The Bendigo East Swimming Club is very proud to announce a joint venture with the Melbourne Vicentre club. As a result of this arrangement, swimmers will have opportunities to train with Vicentre squads in Melbourne on a regular basis. In July, National squad swimmers trained with the Vicentre Senior and Junior National Squads on a Friday evening and Saturday morning. The coaching staff have already developed ongoing relationships with their Vicentre coaching counterparts, and the benefits are already showing. Vicentre National Coach, Matt King, took a training session in Bendigo recently, giving more swimmers exposure to different training techniques and ideas. The improvements in the swimmers involved are already showing, with strong recent results. The Vicentre team will be sending a strong junior squad to Bendigo for our annual swim meet in November. The club looks forward to the further development and strengthening of the links with one of the strongest clubs in Australia.
"BESC aims to develop the opportunity for swimmers of all abilities to progress from learning to swim to competitive swimming, and achieve their full potential in a supportive, friendly, and social setting. The club encourages community and team spirit, and strives to promote a lifelong love of the sport."
