As we draw near to the SCSC Presentation Night 2022, we thought we’d give everyone a bit of a run down on what to expect on Friday night.
What is the SCSC Presentation Night 2022
The SCSC Presentation Night is the special night where all our amazing swimmers get to dress up, let their hair down and just have a great night out.
During the swimming year, competitors receive points for competing and beating their own PB’s (personal best) at club nights. Each swimmer collects points during the season and then they are tallied up and competitors receive trophies depending on the points level they have achieved.
Every swimmer has the opportunity to receive a trophy and this system really rewards effort throughout the season.
We also have other awards that are given to swimmers that meet other criteria, such as club spirit, outstanding achievements and encouragement awards.
We are very lucky to have many special guests attend our annual presentation nights and this year we thank the following guests who will be attending:
Hon. Luke Howarth MP – Federal Member for Petrie / Assistant Minister for Youth and Employment Services
Hon. Yvette D’Ath MP – State Member for Redcliffe / Minister for Health and Ambulance Services
Counsellor Sandra Ruck – Moreton Bay Regional Council Division 5
ORDER OF EVENTS
- Team Photo 7.15pm at the venue – Don’t be late

- Kids will all be seated together at the front. They’ll be served platters of kid friendly food – hot chips, chicken nuggets and regular party type hot food.
The awards presentation starts pretty much straight away and after the general awards, we’ll have a little break while the adults get to eat and we draw some raffle prizes.
- Remember to bring some cash for tickets, however EFTPOS will also be available.
- Then we present the main, special awards, followed by some more raffles, the cutting of the cake and what the kids really want – some hip music and dancing.
- It’ll all be over by 11.30 so time to get some sleep before training on Saturday morning.
