It’s that time of year again! The Swimming Victoria Awards are approaching, and even though we’re out of the pool for a little while, it’s time to look back on a fantastic season and recognise the people and Clubs who make swimming the best sport in the world!
Nominations are now open for our top awards, so if your club is achieving great things, or you know an official, volunteer or young leader that is going above and beyond in the swimming community, make sure they don’t miss out on the kudos they deserve.
Best New Official of the Year
Officials make competitions great by keeping things running smoothly and taking care of recording all the important results and information. If you know an official who is still pretty new to the job, but has already made an outstanding contribution to the sport, you can nominate them here:
Club of the Year
Our Clubs are getting better and better each year – and at Swimming Victoria, we’re all for encouraging increased professionalism at every Club. If your Club is achieving great things within its community and the sport of swimming, nominating them for Club of the Year is your chance to get it the recognition they deserve!
Volunteer of the Year
There’s not a Club or a competition that would be possible without our fantastic volunteers. This award recognises individuals whose service and contribution have made a significant difference at club level – so if you know an extraordinary, dedicated and inspirational person, make sure you put their name forward to ensure their contribution to your Club and the Victorian swimming community is recognised and rewarded.
Young Leader Award
Every generation has its emerging leaders. You can pick them by their passion, their commitment, and the way they bring others along with them on the journey. If you know someone between the ages of 15 – 23 years old, who has shown outstanding leadership within their swimming club, make sure you give them the encouragement and recognition they deserve by nominating them here.
Important Note: We are looking forward to celebrating the Swimming Victoria Awards as a swimming community, but the evolving COVID-19 situation is obviously creating a lot of challenges around gathering together. The details of this year’s Awards are therefore still being finalised, but you can be sure we’ll let you know as soon as we have a workable plan. Keep an eye on our website and social media for updates – and in the meantime, make sure you get your nominations in!
