Tackling societies issues

The aim of the program is to normalise society's issues amongst members of the swimming community. . What makes this program even more special is that all presenters experienced their own issues with the subject matter on their journey to becoming International swimmers.






Participation Ribbons

Participation Ribbons are available for meet organisers to award junior competitors at local meets for participation and involvement in swimming. The ribbons are to recognise participation at an event where a child would not normally receive recognition. These ribbons allow all competitors to be recognised and rewarded for competing, rather than focusing on winning.

If you would like participation ribbons for an upcoming meet, please contact Greta Brodie.
