About Us

 

 Welcome to Bendigo Hawks Aquatic

The Bendigo Hawks Aquatic Swimming Club is the result of the amalgamation of Eaglehawk Swimming Club and Bendigo swimming Club in 2011.

Each club has its own auspicious history with the Bendigo Swimming club being established in 1917 and Eaglehawk Swimming Club in 1954, both have a long and successful history with many swimmers over the years achieving Victorian Age Group, Senior and Open water Titles. The Bendigo Swimming Club also saw its most successful Club representative, Olympian Faith Leech swim her way into the record books, competing at the 1956 Melbourne Summer Olympics.

Bendigo Hawks have the privilege of training at two of the best facilities in Bendigo, Peter Krenz Leisure Centre and The Bendigo Aquatic Centre.

Bendigo Hawks Aquatic is committed to providing all Club swimmers with a comprehensive and well-supported squad program, whether you are wanting to swim competetively or for Recreation. We welcome swimmers from 5 years to 100 years of all abilities. Bendigo Hawks Aquatic is happy to be affilited with Masters Victoria and welcomes new members.

Bendigo Hawks Aquatic affiliated with Swimming Victoria and Central Victoria Swimming (District 15).Our club currently has more than 100 members covering the range of abilities from learn-to-swim through to State and National representatives.

Swimming provides our members with an incredibly strong foundation for life, developing critical skills such as commitment, perseverance, team work, time management, work ethic and the art of winning and losing. These are incredible skills that if harnessed correctly can support our swimmers with continuing success in life beyond the pool. If we can help our young athletes transfer those skills into education, career pursuits and general life skills, they can be a stand out in anything they want to do. These benefits are not just enjoyed by our very top swimmers but any willing athlete that commits to the program that swimming offers.

 BHA is a friendly, supportive family oriented club.
