Club Uniform

In-stock club uniform items may be ordered at https://wmpropulsion.square.site and will be available for collection from your specified training venue when notified.

The club uniform is compulsory for swimmers representing Western Melbourne Propulsion either in competition or at training. The uniform is comprised of a black hoodie with green stripes and club logo, black/green and white competition t-shirt with club logo, black shorts with club logo, black tracksuit pants with club logo, dark blue training t-shirt with club logo and a black, green and white swim cap. Our uniform was updated in 2021 but retains the club's iconic propulsion logo and, while updated, acknowledges the club's history.

All WMP club members can choose a club membership with uniform package, which comprises 2 x caps, competition t/shirt, shorts and hoodie at a subsidized price. A club representative will organise collection shortly after registration.

State and National swimmers may be presented with an event specific t/shirt, at the club’s discretion. Club swimming caps are compulsory during training and competition

Contact our uniform officer via email propulsion.uniforms@gmail.com for a fitting or any uniform enquiries.

Volunteers

Clubs and Districts rely on volunteers to help conduct their meets. For a proposed qualifying meet to be approved by Swimming Victoria, meets must have a minimum number of volunteer 'officials' on pool deck in compliance with Swimming Australia requirements.

Parents are expected to assist as volunteers at swim meets hosted by Western Melbourne Propulsion, Metro West District and Swimming Victoria. Volunteer rosters are published prior to the event on Team App, and parents are expected to confirm their commitment to their allocated role.

Timekeeping is one of the main tasks allocated to parents. Parents can also be asked to assist with other duties such as marshalling, check starting and when we conduct social events.

If you are interested in assisting at the club in a greater role, or have an interest in obtaining more formal, Technical Official qualifications, please let us know.

Any questions about volunteering should be directed to the Volunteer and Officials coordinator via email to the club secretary: propulsion.secretary@gmail.com
