About Us

The City of Sydney Aquatic Club

The Club currently operates across five pools and runs competitive squads out of two of these pools.

The Club oversees swimming programs at Prince Alfred Park Pool, Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre, Cook and Philip Park Pool, Victoria Park Pool and Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool. These pools are managed by Belgravia Leisure on behalf of the City of Sydney Council.

The Club started as YMCA Sydney Swimming Club (YSSC) in 2008. It's aim was to identify emerging talent within the swim schools at these pools and to provide a supportive and well-structured training program to take these kids from their first experience of competitive swimming to the highest level that they are able to achieve.

In 2013, the City of Sydney combined with the YMCA and Belgravia Leisure to consolidate the clubs and pools and the City of Sydney Aquatic Club was born.

The Club has produced many regional, state, national and international representatives and has a proud tradition of supporting swimmers of all abilities with several multiclass athletes representing the club at state and national level.

We are proud of the program that helps our young swimmers develop, but we are also passionate about providing the right environment for the swimmers.

Further information about our squads program is available in our For Swimmers section
