Proudly created by Swimming Australia and its member organisations, Swim Central is our community’s new bespoke operating system for clubs and swimmers.
From membership details and event activity, to coach accreditation and managing funds, everything you need will be at your fingertips via the online portal.
Developed in collaboration with states, territories and partners, the system has been tailor made to ensure it is user friendly, reliable and sustainable, while also having user integrity and privacy at its core.
Swim Central is currently being rolled out across NSW, Queensland and Western Australia, with South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania and the Northern Territory set to follow in coming weeks.
With Swim Central set to replace My Swim Results (in WA) and ClubLANE, MyLANE and Results Central (elsewhere), Swimming Australia CEO Leigh Russell said she was delighted to see the collaborative work carried out by member organisations and partners come to fruition.
“This has obviously been a major leadership and technology project and I’m very proud of all the hard work that’s been undertaken to get Swim Central up and running,” Russell said.
“Put simply, it was time for a bespoke upgrade to our sport’s software systems to make things easier for our consumers and facilitators; Swim Central has streamlined processes and promotes better communication between clubs and swimmers.
“As a genuine national operating system, swimming will be better placed than ever before to track and analyse data to best understand and make decisions for the good of the sport at all levels.”
Make sure you stay connected with your state’s media channels for information on when your state or territory will go live, as well as details about how and when you can access your account.
