2017 Term 1

Sherwood Sharks

We are thrilled to announce that the Shark Tank is now operational. The required work has been completed and we thank you for your understanding over the previous months. Huge thanks go to Mr Wayne Brown for his upkeep of the pool during this time, to Education Qld, the School Administration and our Sharks Committee, for the parts they have played in preparing such a wonderful resource for our swimmers.

Unfortunately, during our closure, we have lost some coaching staff. However, despite this, we hope to provide the best opportunities we can in the circumstances.

Learn to Swim

There will be no Learn to Swim offered in Term 1.

All Learn to Swim credits issued for Term 1 will now be refunded at 40% of the original cost (as offered last term when only 3 weeks of the block were available). You must download, complete and return the online reimbursement (request for refund) form by the 10th of February to receive your refund. Any request not received by this date will be considered a donation to the Club. The reimbursement form can be found below:


If you have already submitted the form and have not received a response can you, please resend to payments@sherwoodsharks.com.  We had a server issue in early December which disrupted our accounts department receiving your requests.

We do apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
