*Important notes regarding Junior Membership

Please note that junior swimmers (aged 12 to 17 years old) must undergo a briefing & swim assessment by one of our lead safety crew on their first visit. This must be booked in advance. There is no charge for the assessment. This process takes approximately 10 minutes and once the crew member has approved the junior swimmers ability & understanding of the rules the athlete may continue with the rest of the session. Junior members must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times at all club sessions. The Blue Lagooners Management reserve the right to rescind  access to sessions if they have concerns for the safety of an athlete or others due to ability and/or behaviour. 

The Blue Lagooners management committee reserve the right to request proof of age prior to joining and to decline membership should the senior coach/crew member feel the junior athlete doesn't possess the required level of competency to swim with the club. However a senior club coach will suggest areas that can be worked on to meet the competency level required. As a guide it is suggested that prospective junior members should be able to swim 400m non stop in the pool using any recognised stroke except backstroke.


Lake Temp


Last Update 04/07/2020

Minimum Temp for Swimming is 11ºC*

*In the spring we wait until the water is holding at least 14ºC overnight to ensure it remains above the minimum temperature for swimming. 

Wetsuits are mandatory when the water temperature is below 18ºc. Above 18ºc wetsuits are optional but non wetsuit swimmers must used an approved Tow Float. The Blue Lagooners Management reserve the right to request to test the suitability of a swimmers wetsuit or tow float for buoyancy & suitability for swimming and reserve the right to refuse access to the water if a swimmers wetsuit or tow float is deemed unsuitable and/or unsafe for swimming. Please check out our info videos on our open water swimming page that explain why this is so important.
