Over the past 6 months Scotch College has embarked on a project to heat the pool all year round. Heat exchangers have been purchased and installed. These combined with the existing Solar Heating now allows the pool to be kept at a constant temperature of approximately 27 degrees C throughout the year.

This now enables the College to expand the swimming program to all year round. This will not only benefit all boys at Scotch it will benefit the Scotch Community as a whole.

Our main focus for the pool is :

  1. To improve the swimming program at Scotch for all year groups.
  2. To improve our results in the JPSSA and PSA swimming competitions.
  3. To value add to Scotch and the Scotch community.
  4. To fully utilize the pool.
  5. To ultimately form our own swim club which would compete in swimming competitions both at the JPSSA, PSA level and State level.

We are excited to announce the introduction of two of WA's highly respected swim coaches, Deb Jones and Shelley Taylor-Smith who have joined forces to offer the very best of swim coaching to swimmers of all levels and ages in the Scotch College Swim Team. Scotch Swimmers will still swim as a group beginning training Week 6 Winter Term and continue until end of the JPSSA and PSA seasons. This will continue as it always has and will be free of charge to all Scotch boys wishing to swim. Sessions in Winter term will be Tuesdays and Thursdays 6.30-7.45am.

Additionally … lessons and squads are available, whether you're learning to swim, getting fit, ready to compete at a State or National level, wanting to step up as Scotch swim team member or thinking of achieving your bucket list eg. Rotto Channel solo and/or Busselton Ironman.

Whatever your goal we have sessions to cater for you!

A 10% discount will be offered to all Scotch community (inclusive of families and old boys).
