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.

It is with our members in mind that these committees work closely with the Board to review the current landscape, advise of appropriate changes and implement new strategies for growth and retainment of members; ensuring longevity for the organisation and its associations.

We are now accepting nominations for our 2019 Management Committees. For more information and to apply, download the application form found on our Resources page.

  • 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.
