Local Legends

We’re excited to again launch our volunteer recognition program - Local Legends. The program will run from December 2017 to June 2018 and recognises stalwarts of our sport who dedicate their time behind the scenes to ensure our sport remains one of the most popular past times in Australia.


It only takes 5 minutes to nominate your Local Legend. Your Local Legend could win the prestigious SAL Local Legend of the Year awarded at the 2018 Gala Dinner and $500 in prize money.

The State Local Legends will then be put forward to be awarded the 2018 SAL Local Legend of the Year.
All State Local Legends will receive return flights for two, one night’s accommodation and two tickets to attend the SAL 2018 Gala Dinner in Melbourne.  

To make it easier to reward the volunteers in your club, download our *editable certificate and present these individualised certificates to your Local Legends. 
Nominate your Local Legend and celebrate those who continue to inspire and promote volunteerism throughout swimming. 
The editable certificate can be found here
To edit the certificate, please save it to your computer and open the document with Adobe Reader)

Congratulations to Tracey Rowell from Tasmania who was awarded the 2017 Local legend of the Year. 

Tracey Rowell, Swimming Tasmania, TAS

Tracey is Swimming Tasmania’s State TO. Tracey has spent endless hours each week volunteering to assist new TO’s to learn the basics of becoming a TO as well as upskilling our current TO’s. Tracey’s State, National and International officiating has led to her excelling in this area and passing this information onto local TO’s and incorporating new and improved protocols on pool deck which has lead to a fluent and free flowing pool deck and event.
