About us

A bit of history...

The club was established in 1962 and was originally known as the Waverley Amateur Swimming Club.  The club was based at the Waverley Outdoor Pool on Waverley Road, Glen Waverley, from 1962 to 2002.  

In 2000-2001, the Waverley outdoor pool was refurbished and the Monash Aquatic and Recreation Centre (MARC) was built. The MARC opened in late 2001.

In 2001, Greg Tate and his mother Bev Tate (who operated the Bev Tate Swim School, based at Mount Scopus College in Burwood) approached the City of Monash about running a new squad program at the MARC.  Soon thereafter Greg met with the then President of Waverley Swimming Club, Brendon Hill, to discuss a new club structure that would merge swimmers from Waverley Swimming Club with swimmers from the Bev Tate Swim School in Burwood.  

The new squad program - managed by the Tate Family - started at the MARC in January 2002.  

In 2002, the Squidline Swimming Club at Harold Holt Swim Centre in Glen Iris - overseen by coach Rod Skudar (Greg's cousin) - also merged with the club. Around the same time, swimmers from St Kevin's College in Toorak - coached by Greg and Mark Tate - were invited to join the club.

To reflect the new club structure, a change in names of city councils and a new era for the club, Greg proposed that the club be renamed 'M1'. The name 'M1' refers to the M1 Monash Freeway - a landmark which all of the club's pools are within close proximity of.  At the AGM in May 2002, the Waverley Swimming Club agreed to rename the club 'M1 Swimming Club'.

In 2012, Rod Skudar extended his squad program at Harold Holt to also operate out of the newly built Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre in East Bentleigh.
