Arena Swim Club Training Schedule as at 28th April 2015


CLUB NEWS: A quick note to all parents / members / swimmers. As many of you are aware there has been a number of issues that have had to be resolved in the past few weeks. These issues have led to the majority of the Management Committee resigning as of Monday April 27th 2015. On behalf of all members and swimmers I would like to thank the past Committee members for all of their contributions to the club.

Change is never easy and whilst we will be doing everything possible to minimise any further confusion or disruption, please bear with us whilst we work with Swimming WA to formalise the change over of the Management Committee.

Our first priority is to our swimmers and making sure that the coaching structure and squad sessions are not impacted any further. Carey Martin and Warren Paynter have agreed to return to the Club and will be working hard in re-energising our swimmers, effective immediately.

We will continue to update the web page and email all members as the changes formally take place this week.

Thank you to everyone for their support.

Special Event – CANCELLED

The committee apologises - but due to changed circumstances, this event has had to be cancelled 




With a focus firmly on the future, Arena Swim Club is excited to offer our members the opportunity to fire up their motivation and train with former Olympian


A commanding presence at almost 2m tall, Neil Brooks – or “Brooksie” to his mates, is a giant in person and in the pool.


Predominantly a freestyler, the former Olympian understands the importance of team, winning 1980 Olympic gold for Australia in Moscow as anchor of the “Quietly Confident Quartet”  Men’s 4 x 100m medley relay team and Silver at the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Games as part of the infamous “Mean Machine” Men’s 4 x 100m freestyle relay team.


An adaptable sportsman, Neil has also attained representative level in water polo, indoor cricket and Australian League football. Adaptable too in life, Neil is a Dad, a husband, an author, rock guitarist, sports presenter and an accomplished writer, having completed a University Journalism degree in Arkansas, USA.


A determination to reclaim his fitness in 2008 resulted in a successful return to the competitive swimming world stage. Neil now fuels his passion for competition through Triathlon – making personal and community gains, both here and in Indonesia, where he shares his passion and skills, mentoring local triathletes.
