Welcome to Gosford Stingrays
The Gosford Stingrays Swimming Club came into existence in 1955, just before the opening of the Gosford Olympic Swimming Pool in Masons Parade Gosford. The swimming pool and the swimming club were the first on the Central Coast and over the last 50 years, Gosford Stingrays has been the most successful swimming club on the Central Coast. Gosford Stingrays has produced many great swimmers both in the pool and the open water. The swimmers have included a number of National as well as World champions and a number of our swimmers have represented Australia at the Olympics and the Paraolympics.

About the Club
Gosford Stingrays is affiliated with Gosford Council and meets every Friday night at Gosford Olympic pool. New members are always welcome (Club Meet details posted under, Programs). The club caters for both competitive swimmers as well as social swimmers. The club provides support to the competitive swimmers who attend Country, State and National Championships and also runs numerous social events for the younger and social members of the club.
Gosford Stingrays Swimming club is active the whole year round. In Summer, we operate out of the 50 metre outdoor pool, while in Winter we operate out of the 25 metre indoor pool. We have a number of top professional coaches who ensure that all swimmers are given high quality professional instruction and training.
So come along and join us a Gosford Stingrays Swimming club based at the picturesque Gosford Olympic Swimming Pool.
As we have come to the end of the Winter short course it was very well attended and lots of members did PBs. We had swimmers representing our club proudly at CVSA, NSW Country and NSW State level. Membership has continued to grow and we are looking forward to a new influx of squad swimmers into the club over the coming Summer season.
The 60th birthday celebrations are gaining momentum and we have been trying to gain some sponsorship from swim manufacturers and hopefully Gosford Council will wave the hiring fe of the lanes we are utilising on the day. The day will be attended hopefully by some dignitaries such as Laurie McKinna and by past and present members. We are holding a BBQ and also have some medallions for those swimmers who achieve any distance over 1km, 2km, 5km+.
We are also trying to initiate putting flyers into the local area schools to encourage new members. The ideal of this is, you do not have to be a competitive swimmer to join the Stingrays but you can become one if you want to. I feel as a club we are orientated towards the kids having fun and enjoying their swimming and hopefully this will keep our club growing and be around for another 60 years.
