The Victorian Institute of Sport
Many of Australia’s best athletes have been touched by the VIS. The training they have received has propelled them on to the world stage where their success has been nothing short of phenomenal. The VIS is justifiably proud of its many Olympic, Paralympic and World Champions who have not only succeeded in sport but also in life and, in so doing, have acted as positive role models for others.
The focus of the VIS swimming program is to develop and support athletes with the aim of success on the international stage. Athletes are provided with comprehensive training support as well as support to compete at major events including the Australian Championships, domestic Grand Prix series, international World Cup series and major international series in Europe, Asia and the United States. VIS swimmers are supported to train at their home club with their chosen coach, to individually suit the needs and requirements of each athlete.
