  • Arrive on time - Coaches are there to warm you up and prepare you for racing, so show respect to your coach by arriving on time
  • Sit together with team - All M1 swimmers are expected to sit together as a team at swim meets. Coaches will reinforce this and parents are asked to play their role in telling their children to sit with team mates.  Parents are welcome to sit next to the team.
  • Marshalling for your event - Check what event numbers are yours and marshall on time for your event
  • Communicate with your coach - Before and after each event, talk to your coach as they may have some advice or feedback and support to give
  • Support your team mates - Swimmers are part of a team, so make an effort to support members of your team
  • Try your best - Give it your best shot when you race - learning to try 100% is a great life skill and you will always feel better if you know you tried.

M1 Galas

The club conducts four swim meers per year, known as 'M1 Galas'.  The galas provide an opportunity for members of all ages and abilities to practice racing in a supportive environment. 

Our galas are run as qualifying meets, so swimmers times will be added to Swimming Australia's National Database. Click here for gala results and the national database.

M1's Club Champions for each age group are selected based on participation in each gala and performance at the Club Championship gala held in March. For more about the club's awards, refer to the M1 Awards section of this website.

The galas are run by members of the M1 Committee, Swimming Victoria Officials and a group of swimmer's parents volunteering their time.  

The following galas are held each season:

  • Gala 1 - Team Spirit Gala (July/August)
  • Gala 2 - Long Course Gala (October)
  • Gala 3 - Club Championship Gala (March)
  • Gala 4 - Short Course Gala (May/June)


Junior Excellence

The Australian Junior Excellence Program (JX), recognises rewards and encourages junior swimmers who, through their development of aquatic skills and fitness, achieve a high standard of swimming excellence.

Under the revised program, swimmers aged from 9 to 16 years, who accomplish times set by Swimming Australia, qualify at Gold, Silver, Bronze or Green standard, depending on their best performance/s during the season.

For doing so, qualifiers receive special recognition by way of: 

  • Publication of their name on this website
  • A JX prize pack including a cap, poster and certificate

About us

A bit of history...

The club was established in 1962 and was originally known as the Waverley Amateur Swimming Club.  The club was based at the Waverley Outdoor Pool on Waverley Road, Glen Waverley, from 1962 to 2002.  

In 2000-2001, the Waverley outdoor pool was refurbished and the Monash Aquatic and Recreation Centre (MARC) was built. The MARC opened in late 2001.

In 2001, Greg Tate and his mother Bev Tate (who operated the Bev Tate Swim School, based at Mount Scopus College in Burwood) approached the City of Monash about running a new squad program at the MARC.  Soon thereafter Greg met with the then President of Waverley Swimming Club, Brendon Hill, to discuss a new club structure that would merge swimmers from Waverley Swimming Club with swimmers from the Bev Tate Swim School in Burwood.  

The new squad program - managed by the Tate Family - started at the MARC in January 2002.  

In 2002, the Squidline Swimming Club at Harold Holt Swim Centre in Glen Iris - overseen by coach Rod Skudar (Greg's cousin) - also merged with the club. Around the same time, swimmers from St Kevin's College in Toorak - coached by Greg and Mark Tate - were invited to join the club.

To reflect the new club structure, a change in names of city councils and a new era for the club, Greg proposed that the club be renamed 'M1'. The name 'M1' refers to the M1 Monash Freeway - a landmark which all of the club's pools are within close proximity of.  At the AGM in May 2002, the Waverley Swimming Club agreed to rename the club 'M1 Swimming Club'.

In 2012, Rod Skudar extended his squad program at Harold Holt to also operate out of the newly built Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre in East Bentleigh.  

The current club structure

Swimmers training with the following privately managed training organisations can become members of M1 Swimming Club:

Tateswim - based at the Monash Aquatic and Recreation Centre (Directors: Bev Tate, Mark Tate and Greg Tate)

Academy of Swimming - based at the Harold Holt Swim Centre and the Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre (Directors: Rod Skudar and Judy Skudar)
