About the NSW Olympians Club

"Once an Olympian - Always an Olympian. Never Past - Never Former”

The Olympians Club of NSW (NSWOC) celebrates, fosters and upholds the tradition of being an Australian Olympian. It is the State arm of the Olympians Club of Australia (OCA). All states in Australia have their own Olympians Club.


Membership of this elite club is available to all athletes who have competed in an Olympic Games, Summer or Winter. All NSW Olympians automatically become members when selected in an Australian Olympic Team. There are no membership fees.

The NSW Olympians Club is managed by a voluntary Committee elected by NSW Olympians at the Annual General Meeting. It has representation at NSW Olympic Council Executive Board Meetings through the President of the Club who is, by Constitution, a member of the NSWOC Executive.
