The Executive Committee has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Flyers Swimming club. We are very excited to announce our club partnership. We believe that partnership with the Flyers Swimming club (6th largest swimming club in Victoria) will be beneficial to our club, broaden our scope and exposure, highlight membership benefits across both clubs and eventually lead to growth and diverse competition pathways within the partnership.

The partnership was proposed by Mount Martha Lifesaving Club. Executive committee members representing both clubs have met and discussed opportunities supporting the interests of all parties. Flyers swimming club has two operational squads, one based in Frankston (PARC), the other based in Rosebud (YAWA). Mount Martha Life Saving Club is located conveniently between each squad and provides an opportunity for a base, committee meeting venue, access to training and a facility for the Flyers Swimming Club presentation events (where Mount Martha Life Saving Club operations, bookings or training allow). Cross promotion strategies and enhanced membership pathways underpin the partnership across both clubs. The arrangement is an exclusive partnership – Flyers will be the exclusive Swimming Club partner of Mount Martha Life Saving Club. Mount Martha Life Saving Club will be the exclusive Lifesaving partner of Flyers Swimming Club. Any partner organisation is subject to the code of conduct, rules and regulations of Mount Martha Life Saving Club when using facilities in any capacity.

Underpinning the agreement:

• The MOU provides for a mutually beneficial partnership between strong, independent, like-minded, community-based organisations, providing an enhanced suite of opportunities for members
• The MOU is subject to agreement of both clubs and may be terminated immediately by either party with notice to the President and Executive committee of each club.
• Mount Martha Life Saving Club is the principal/governing tenant of the Mount Martha Life Saving Club facility.

Scheduled or official Mount Martha Life Saving Club events take preference over external bookings.
• Exclusive Flyers Swimming Club dates (meetings, functions etc) within the Mount Martha Life Saving Club facility, should be communicated to the President and/or Club Hire/Social Coordinator of the Mount Martha Life Saving Club for confirmation.

• Mount Martha Life Saving Club may engage additional partnerships with sporting clubs (not swimming clubs) or organisations.
• Recognition of the partnership between both clubs will be promoted via club social media platforms and websites.
