Swim School

Sydney Olympic Park’s Aquatic Centre has been recognised as the 2013 NSW AUSTSWIM Swim Centre of the Year by an independent panel

Highlighting the Centre’s commitment to community education on water safety and aquatic skills. 

The AUSTSWIM Awards of Excellence recognise brilliance, commitment and innovation in the teaching of swimming and water safety, covering aspects such as teacher effectiveness, contribution to developing peers and commitment to quality teacher training.

With over 4,200 students enrolled, the Aquatic Centre’s swim school promotes the philosophy that all Australians should have appropriate and relevant swimming and water safety skills.

The judging panel, consisting of representatives from the Department of Education and Communities, NSW Sport and Recreation and Surf Lifesaving Australia, considered the programs available to the community, which cater to all ages and abilities, as well as swim school staff - their qualifications and ongoing development. Lane space, small class sizes and the detailed levels that allow students to progress easily were other factors that contributed to the Aquatic Centre winning this award.
