About Waikiki Swim Club
Lifetime Vigorous Swimming for Fun, Sport and Health
Waikiki Swim Club® has a long heritage of adult swimming (masters). The first Waikiki Roughwater Swim was held in 1969, and the organizers of the race founded the Waikiki Swim Club in 1971. Our main goal is to promote FUN/SAFE SWIMMING. We hope you will join us!
OCEAN SWIMMING! NEVER SWIM ALONE IN THE OCEAN! (ALWAYS SWIM WITH A BUDDY). Members form informal swimming groups at various locations around the Island depending upon conditions. WSC members most often meet Sunday's at Kaimana Beach (Sans Souci) at 0800 in front of the New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel, and gather in small ability groups to swim in the Ocean. Please sign the WAIVER attached to this application and send it in with your application, which will remain on file. After you become a member, you can join an appropriate group depending on your swimming ability and get put on their e-mail list for other times and locations of weekend swims.
WSC REQUESTS that you submit the Swimmer Self-Assessment form , in order to determine which swim group may be a fit. Safety is paramount and it is important that you represent your skills accurately. The best fit may be to continue pool workouts until you are a strong enough swimmer to venture into the ocean. Or, you may be ready to swim the Molokai Channel. We won't know unless you tell us.
WE SPONSOR RACES. WSC also sponsors several well-known races throughout the year, including the Chun's to Waimea, North Shore 2.4 Mile Challenge, Guess Your Time Benefit Swim, Fin Swim, and Magic Island, Christmas, and Valentine’s Biathlons. Members are encouraged volunteer to help in some way when possible.
FACEBOOK GROUP. WSC has a Facebook Group for members only. This is a closed group which requires administrator approval for access. Only approved members can see posts to this Group. This Facebook Group is a place for Waikiki Swim Club members to contact each other, report on swimming conditions, and to seek out swimmers of similar interests and abilities.
SO DO YOU WANT TO JOIN THE FUN? Annual dues to join WSC are only $20 per family! We sponsor many social events throughout the year that the dues support, such as a Christmas Party, Easter Beach Potluck, Annual Banquet, and Volunteer Appreciation Night at the Elks Lodge. If you have questions, feel free to contact the WSC Membership Coordinator, Gary Bignami at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
