Complete your Duke of Edinburgh International Award 

Swimming NSW is proud to be an Award Centre for the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, a global youth development program empowering young Australians aged 14-24 to explore their full potential.  

Participants must learn a new skill, volunteer, improve their physical wellbeing and experience a team adventure in a new environment. Every Award is different, our qualified Award Leaders can help guide Participants through all stages of their Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.
