Fairholme Aquatic Centre - An Overview

National SwimSPORT Award Winners!
Centre Manager Judy Dickinson attended the Swim Australia Awards evening as part of the ASCTA Conference she attended on Tuesday 2 May. FAST Aquatic Centre are proud to celebrate winning the national SwimSPORT Award! Dawn Fraser presented Judy with the award, which was a great honour.

The award acknowledges our FAST Track pathway from Learn to Swim to Squads and beyond, recognising FAST Aquatic Centre's leading-edge programs. Activities such as Get the Edge, Time & Technique Meet, Water Smart Clinics, FAST League and Club Nights all contribute to creating opportunities for those in our swim school to develop their aquatic skills further.

We are so pleased to add this to the collection, along with Judy's recent AUSTSWIM Award for Most Outstanding Contribution and our other previous acknowledgements.
