Fitness, Friendship & Fun!
Masters Swimming is for any adult already 18 years old to 90+. There are no limits to how long you can swim and be a member of Masters Swimming Queensland (MSQ). The state organisation of MSQ is based in the Swimming Queensland (SQ) office, which is in the Brisbane Aquatic Centre, Chandler, Brisbane.
Masters Swimming Australia’s mission is “to provide at club, state and national level an environment to encourage all adults, regardless of ability, to swim regularly and compete in order to promote fitness and improve their general wellbeing.”
Our motto is Fitness, Friendship & Fun.
The Formation of MSA
Masters Swimming Australia was formed in September 1975, under the banner of AUSSI (Australian Union of Senior Swimmers Internationally). In 2010 the acronym AUSSI was dropped in favour of Masters Swimming Australia.

The Administration of MSQ
In 2009 MSQ amalgamated with SQ and through this process a Service Level Agreement was signed to enable the latter organisation to administer MSQ. The two organisations operate independently – each with its own constitution, by-laws, and board members. MSQ is affiliated with Masters Swimming Australia and FINA, the international Swimming organisation.
There are a few ways of joining Masters Swimming. You need not be a highly competitive swimmer or even want to compete, but whatever your needs, our organisation, through its clubs, will cater for your particular needs. If you’re 18 years old already or older (no limit), you are eligible to join our adult swimming organisation. There is something for every level of a swimmer and we would love to meet you.
