Nunawading Swimming Club is a not for profit sporting organisation which is managed by a Board. The Board oversees and develops the medium to long term strategic direction of the organisation and meets on a monthly basis.
A Swim Committee reports to the Board and oversees all aspects of swimming competitions for the club.
The Club has a full-time Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who oversees and manages the day-to-day operations of the club and associated businesses. The CEO attends all Board meetings and provides advice to the Board and Committee members as required.
Gary Barclay has been CEO (formerly General Manager) at NSC since February 2003 and has many years experience in coaching, operating swim schools, event management and general knowledge of the aquatic industry.
There are two core areas that the Club focuses on. They are Swimming Performance and Business Performance. Swimming performance is primarily driven by the team of coaches employed by Nunawading Swimming Club.
The Club currently operates 5 swim schools under the business name ‘Just Swimming’ and employs approximately 150 persons throughout the year. The swim schools are managed by a full-time Business Manager. The business arm of the Club has experienced rapid growth in the past five years.
NSC trains at a number of different locations. Our home base is the indoor 50m pool at Aqualink Nunawading. The Club owns the Syndal Swim Centre in Mt Waverley.
The club has held long-term relationships with a number of local schools and government agencies and utilise their terrific facilities. These include the 8 lane indoor 25m pool at Tintern Girls Grammar, the indoor 25m pool at Wesley College, Glen Waverley, the 8 lane indoor 50m pool at Police Academy, Glen Waverley and the 6 lane 25m indoor pool at Caulfield Grammar, Wheelers Hill.
There are many opportunities for families to be involved in club activities and parents are encouraged to participate, to join committees and become officials. Many friendships will be made here. Parents of Club members are expected and encouraged to assist in the conduct of swim meets from time to time and assist in Committees and the Board.
