About Us

What and who are --- Endurance Fitness Systems? (EFS) 

          (aka.... efs triathlon club inc)

 

Formed as a small training group in 1997 at Leeming Rec Centre --it then moved over to the old Melville Aquatic Outdoor pool

Now part of the new Leisurefit Aquatic Centre   - the training group formed itself into a club and based itself at Leisurefit Booragoon in the 2013/14 triathlon season.

It enjoys a unique community club partnership with Leisurefit Booragoon , the club home base 

With membership growth every year, an outstanding performance  training facility/ Centre squad partnership in use, 4 high Level TA Accredited  Club Coaches, plus a  Junior Program the club continues  to be innovative and  tick the boxes with a strong proactive committee at the helm.

Whilst the new Melville Indoor pool was under construction EFS was operating from the new Riverton Leisure Centre in High Rd

By now there was a diverse spread of athletes with triathletes, Rotto swimmers, marathon runners, Blackwood Ultra racers even Kokoda Trail trekkers all joining in during parts of the year      

                                                                             

Endurance moved back into Melville Aquatic in 2007 and has seen even more athletes enjoy outstanding success and achieve their goals…

May they continue to do so for a long time yet and find many more challenges?   

It is now truly .... "more than just a tri club- a development zone "

                             The Legend of the Rat                                              

 

In the early days (about 1998 ) o there was not a lot of lane space days for a squad available, so we all did an early morning 6am river swim in summer once a week.      

The girls (and  some of the guys) didn’t like sharing the river bank  very much with the big grotty hairy coated river rats & the nickname began of doing the “river rat swim” … which eventually turned into the “rat logo” after we moved back to having more lane space available at the pools

Who is KING RAT/QUEEN RAT then ? aka --Club Captain 

Its an is an position remembering our past . Voted in each year by squad members

Their role (king -queen Rat) is to always be motivating and encouraging squad members, participate in various squad seminars and events, as well as performing important “duties” and creating fun for all. Invoking a true club sprit and inclusiveness is paramount aim of Le Rat .
