MSQ Clubs
      There are four regions in Queensland: 
      North Region          
(North of Mackay)
      Central Region        (North of Noosa - up to Mackay
      Sunshine Region     (North of the Brisbane River & south of Maryborough, including South Burnett)
      South Region          (South of the Brisbane River, Northern New South Wales - Tweed Heads, Lismore etc.)

      NOTE:  To join a club, please contact the club to introduce yourself.  If you have not been a member of another
                 MSA club, you would need to join as a NEW REGISTRATION.  Not all clubs include the club fee online
                 and you would therefore need to pay the club fee directly to the club.
                 If you have been a member of another club and you wish to transfer to a new club, let that club know 
                 that and notify your old club.
                 The new club will need to transfer you to its membership.

      To access information on clubs in each region, you may click on the region above or check the drop down
      sub menus under

2.   Starting a New Club

        A new club must have a minimum of 5 members if it is purely a Masters Swimming Queensland club.

         Advantages of forming a ONE CLUB with an existing Junior SQ club:

  • You need only 3 members to form the Masters' component of the club
  • It already has an existing committee
  • Wider support and assistance for each other, particularly if you wish to host a swim meet
  • Wider scope from which to draw new members
  • Local recognition of SQ club - an advantage to MSQ members

4.   Barbarians - Branch Club
QBR, The Barbarians is a club run by the Branch/State organisation.  It was created to cater for swimmers 

  • live in remote areas too far from existing clubs
  • prefer not to join a club
  • prefer to train with swimmers, who don't belong to a club, but who enjoy training together
  • are unable to find enough swimmers to form a club, but live too far from an existing club
