The Club

Inner City Aquatic or “ICA” was formed in 2014 after the amalgamattion of the Collingwood and Richmond Swimming Clubs. Proudly working in partnership with Yarra Leisure and affiliated with Swimming Victoria, ICA caters for school aged and adult swimmers of all abilities.
Our swimmers are from the surrounding communities of inner city Melbourne (Richmond, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Melbourne, Abbotsford, Hawthorn, Kew, and Camberwell)

Our coaching team is headed up by Tracy Johnston and under her guidance, provide training and skill development programs that bring the best out of all who train and compete with our Club.

All our coaches are ASCTA (Australian Swimming Coaches and Teachers Association) accredited and are committed to encourage club members to be ‘good sports’ in everything they do.

ICA aims to promote and encourage swimming for healthy recreation and as a competitive sport within our community.


By building confidence in our swimmers and encouraging their involvement in club and district based competition, we have successfully supported swimmers onto represent our club at state and national level.

Training schedules for district, state and national level swimmers are available here, or from the reception desks at both the Collingwood Leisure Centre and Richmond Recreation Centre.
