Integrity Requirements for Coaches

Swimming Australia is committed to making our sport safe for all members of our swimming community, with the safety of children and young people in our sport being critical.

In order to ensure our accredited coaches are protected and understand the important role they play in creating a safe sport environment, it is essential that they understand the legal and ethical responsibilities they have in safeguarding their athletes, particularly children and young people.

With this in mind, together with the recently updated Swimming Australia National Integrity Framework, it has become essential for all Swimming Australia accredited coaches to ensure that their integrity and safe sport knowledge are up to date in order to maintain their coach accreditation.

Our goal is for all Swimming Australia Accredited Coaches to maintain the following integrity requirements for holding Swimming Australia Coach Accreditation as described in the table below.

All accredited coaches must now maintain current evidence of the following requirements within Swim Central, according to their level of Swimming Australia Coach Accreditation.

Please refer below to the column relating to your level of Swimming Australia Coach Accreditation. A “Yes” indicates the document is required for that level of Coach Accreditation, and a “No” indicates not required.

If you can’t find what you are looking for head back to the Coaching Hub to see other Coaching options.
