Aussi Masters looks to build

DAPH Soppa is leading the Rum City Aussi Masters Swimming Club on its biggest recruitment drive for years.

Taking the bull by the horns, Soppa has made her message clear: our club wants you.

“If you never learnt how to swim or want to increase your aerobic fitness, it’s the perfect time to start again,” she said.

We have the coaches and environment to help you.”

The club is holding a come-and-try day on Sunday from 9am at Bundaberg Swimming Academy on Eggmolesse Street.

Entry is free and a sausage sizzle will be held at the end. Swimmers of all levels are invited. Soppa hopes to lure in a new wave of talented masters swimmers, continuing the amazing run of success the club has experienced this season.

“We had nine swimmers compete in the Maryborough Masters Games and all of them came home with a medal,” Soppa said.

“Lexie Towner and Ros Hodge also attended the World Masters Games in Sydney and gained top-20 placings.”
