COMMUNICATION

Two of the most important aspects of being involved in the Tea Tree Gully Swimming Club is good communication between the coach, swimmer and parents and the effective distribution of information to families by the coach and the club.

If a swimmer or parent has any questions or concerns, they are asked to speak to their coach.

The Club uses a number of communication methods to keep members up to date;

TeamApp

The club predominately utilises TeamApp to communicate updates notices, schedules, events, etc. You can download TeamApp to compatible smart phones and tablets.
