GO Club PB Standard Results
The GO Club PB program is a key component of Swimming Australia's efforts to measure and reward swimming clubs based on their ability. By completing a series of questions that Swimming Australia has identified as having strategic importance, a club has the opportunity to gain a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses. This year West Coast Swimming Club received its highest ranking to date - GOLD. Of the 311 clubs nationally that completed the online workbook a total of 12 clubs were awarded Platinum Status, 44 Gold Status, 85 Silver Status, 74 Bronze Status, 55 Green Status and 41 Entry Level Status. Congratulations as well to other GOLD recipients Marion Swimming Club, Norwood Swimming Club, Fleurieu Swimming Club, Whyalla Swimming Club, Silver City Swimming Club and Port Pirie Swimming Club - what a fantastic result for country swimming in SA. This places us on par with South Australia's leading swimming clubs.
Inclusive Club Standards
The Inclusive Club Standard serves two purposes; the first is to provide recognition and reward to those clubs who are taking steps to create an inclusive environment in their clubs; the second helps clubs, regions, state associations and Swimming Australia to identify areas of strength and weakness enabling the development of programs to address inclusion of people with disability more effectively. This year West Coast Swimming Club was awarded two stars - Thinking About Inclusion. The maximum number of stars is 5 stars.
