2018 Swimming Program

Swimming is a program that has experienced a lot of success, with many athletes competing at state and national level competitions. The swimming program owes much of its success to the highly accredited satellite coaches from around Gippsland who are under the guidance of Coach Co-ordinator Brian Ford.  The Swimming Program has been proudly sponsored by the Morwell Bowling Club for many years and continues to also be supported by Gippsland Swimming & Swimming Victoria ensuring the sport and the program are progressing with the best intentions for all involved. The program boasts former Academy athlete and Olympic swimmer, Ashley Delaney as its patron.

This years program will be focused on specialist coaching with sessions run by former Australian Head Coach Leigh Nugent.  The sessions will be all conducted at Latrobe Leisure Centre Churchill, Ford Swim Centre Traralgon, and Lex Glover Aquatic Complex Sale, with all athletes and coaches benefitting from Leigh’s expertise.
