Beyond the Pool


Swimming Victoria's 2018 ‘Developing Young Leaders’. 

Club Captains and emerging leaders participated in a specifically designed program that focussed on developing leadership skills within their Club and local community.

Clubs were invited to nominate their Club Captains/Vice Captains or swimmers who had the potential to be future leaders and role models within our sport and community.
