As part of a club we goal set and push ourselves to dream of what is possible. The thought borne from one of our senior swimmers has lead our club to get behind March Laps-for-Life. An organisation supporting young Australians mental health.
Our hopes are to raise $10,000 for this important cause and are asking everyone in our community to help us reach our goal.
1 in 4 young Australians is currently experiencing a mental health difficulty. But there’s an even bigger problem: 70% of those who need help don’t get it. And, suicide remains the leading cause of death of young Aussies. That means more young people take their own lives each year than die in car accidents.
After friends and family, the internet is the first place young people turn to for information and support. That’s where ReachOut.com comes in.
Every dollar raised through Laps for Life will enable ReachOut to continue providing this vital service so that young people get the support they need to be happy and well. Click HERE to read more
How does it work?
After training sessions our swimmers will be logging the laps they swim on each day of training.
Swimming is amazing for your mental health. Whether you’re managing a mental health problem or just looking for a little relaxation, hitting the pool can really help.

“A successful State age championships was held over the weekend with over 20 of our swimmers per night making the finals”.
Overall we had 32 medals won by Surrey Park swimmers. The highlight was certainly the team spirit with many swimmers that were not competing coming into support their teammates. All swimmers were up and cheering before each swimmers race which certainly lifted the performance of the swimmers. Congratulations to Chantelle Underwood who from her results (6 medals) gained selection for the Victorian State team to compete in early October.
