Dorrigo Swimming Club News

The Dorrigo Swimming Club presented a donation to plateau local and past club member, Casey Billing at a general meeting held earlier this year.

The club asked Casey how her 2016 season of motorcycle racing has been progressing and she explained her 2016 season on the bike has been pretty great.

“I have mainly done enduro but I’ve thrown in one dirt track race and a few motocross races,” Casey said.

“I placed first overall in the Northern Inland Sprint Series with three out of three wins. 

“I am currently sitting in first for the Northern Inland Pony Express Series with two out of two wins and one round remaining.

“I placed first in the motocross round I did at Coffs Harbour and I placed third and first in the two rounds I did at Port Macquarie.

“I took this year to train and increase my speed and fitness with the goal of competing in the Australian Off Road Series next year.

“This will be a very tough competition with some of the fastest females in the world racing in this competition. It will definitely test me but I feel ready and very excited. 

Casey thanked the Dorrigo Swimming Club for their “generous donation towards my racing”.

The Dorrigo Swimming Club is very proud of Casey’s achievements and pleased to be able to support her in her future endeavours. Good luck Casey! 

The 2016/17 season of the Dorrigo Swimming Club has commenced, with club nights being held on Wednesday afternoons from 5.30 pm.

All ages and abilities are encouraged to join.

The swimming club is a great way to develop important swimming skills while having fun along the way and this year the club has a new “Optus Junior Dolphins” program which is free for children aged seven and under (pool entry applies).

This program is designed as a way for young swimmers to improve on their swimming skills in a fun, safe and non-competitive environment.
