Integrity and Safe Sport 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 Safe Sport Framework, it has become essential for all Swimming Australia accredited coaches to ensure that their integrity and safe sport requirements are up to date in order to maintain their coach accreditation.

Our goal is for all Swimming Australia Accredited Coaches to have achieved all current requirements for holding Swimming Australia Coach Accreditation as described in the table below.



The timeline to complete these requirements is as follows:

  • Phase 1 & 2: required immediately
  • Phase 3: required by 30 April 2021*

 

All accredited coaches must complete the following requirements according to their level of Swimming Australia Coach Accreditation by the dates indicated above.

*Coaches attending Nationals in April must have Phase 3 requirements completed to gain access to pool deck. 

 

Please refer below to the column relating to your level of Swimming Australia Coach Accreditaiton. A green tick indicates required and a red cross indicates not required. If you need further information please contact the Swimming Australia Coaching Development Team at learning.coaches@swimming.org.au
