Swimming Australia, with the support of ASCTA, is pleased to announce a new and exciting program called the Coach Recognition Program.
The purpose of the Program is to acknowledge those coaches who have contributed to the career of an athlete who goes on to represent Australia as a member of the Australian Dolphins Swim Team.
The first stage of this Program is to recognise the age group coaches of the 2017 Australian Dolphin Rookies.
That is those coaches who guided, developed and influenced these athletes through their formative years at the Age Nationals level.
The first presentation took place on Sunday where State Head Coach for Victoria & Tasmania Rohan Taylor and ASCTA - VIC President – Nick Veliades, presented Ian Pope with the award.

Congratulations Ian and thank you for your service.
