Committees & Panels

SOPAC Diving Block

Swimming NSW's volunteer-run committees assist the Board in implementing the organisation's strategic plan across a variety of areas integral to the success of our sport.

  • Duties & Responsibilities
  • Swimming NSW is committed to improving swimming for young people and retaining them as members. Most importantly, we want our members to enjoy swimming as part of a healthy lifestyle for the long term.

    Our Youth Advisory Panel is made up of 18 swimmers, aged 13-19, from clubs in the Sydney-metro area.

    Like other committees, the Youth Advisory Panel meets once per month. Panel members focus on developing strategies to keep swimmers aged 12-19 engaged in our sport.
