MAREEBA WILDCATS SWIMMING CLUB

Firstly, before you begin viewing the information on this page, it is important that you understand the difference between the completely separate entities - The Mareeba Wildcats Swimming Club, and Cotter's Aquatics Swim and Fitness. Although June Cotter may be the Head Coach, her business is completely separate. Parents are made to pay an annual membership fee, which goes directly to the club. Parents are also needed to pay the weekly training fee, which is to cover June's Coaching staff's wages. If you have any queries or questions about the club, please do not hesitate to contact a committee member using the 'Contact' section on page below.
