Public submissions for the recently established Independent Swimming Review opened today and will be accepted until December 14, 2012.
Any person wishing to make a submission or contact the review panel is encouraged to do so online using the review’s website www.independentswimmingreview.com.
To ensure the Swimming Review Panel receives frank and open information, submissions can be made anonymously.
People are asked to make submissions that fall under the scope of the review panel’s terms of reference.
The review is seeking submissions from a variety of stakeholders including athletes, coaches, board members, commercial partners and government agencies.
A separate program of targeted stakeholder consultations is currently being planned by the review panel.
Last month the Australian Sports Commission and Swimming Australia Limited announced that the Hon Warwick Smith AM would chair the review panel.
The review will analyse swimming’s strategic planning, management of resources, risk management and the sport’s ability to respond to changes around the world in elite swimming.
It will examine the effectiveness of strategies, structures and policies to deal with talent identification and development programs, competition structures and coaching support.
The review will also consider current team culture, relevant competitor country analysis and the impact of social media on athlete preparations.
The review will be completed ahead of the Australian Sports Commission’s annual funding allocations as part of the sports performance review in the first quarter of 2013.
