About the SWA Foundation

 

The SWA Foundation aims to raise vital funds to support swimmers with a disability and as well as their Clubs, to provide access and swimming tuition to meet specific needs.

 

The Foundation is seeking support to increase our fundraising efforts. These courageous West Australians require support and assistance that tests even the most dedicated volunteer. Multi-Class athletes require financial assistance to undergo specific athlete evaluation to obtain a swimming “classification”. This classification groups the swimmer according to their impairment to participate in the sport.

 

Our goal is to assist Western Australian Swimming Clubs host well-structured open days for swimmers with a disability to participate and commence their swimming journey. Along with the health and social benefits, the potential to participate at the highest level is a goal that we hope will be within their reach.

 

Your kind donation will provide funding to ensure cost is not a hurdle for swimmers with a disability to get into the water.
