Brisbane Swimming is one of Swimming Queensland’s Regional Swimming Associations, under the jurisdiction of its parent body, Swimming Queensland. The Association is committed to excellence and improvement in swimming, through innovative and progressive practices.
Each season, Brisbane Swimming conducts a number of swimming competitions and development activities in addition to annual awards events.
Swimming Queensland was established in 1898 – yes well over 100 years ago. Its vision is to inspire and enable members to achieve excellence in the sport of swimming, as in life.
The organisation has seven Regional Associations (of which Brisbane Swimming is one) that help deliver development opportunities to swimming members, volunteers and Technical Officials and assist in achieving the organisations strategic goals.
Swimming Queensland has a strong history of producing world-class athletes, as proven by our strong representation on Swimming Australia’s National Teams.
Swimming Australia is the peak governing body for swimming in Australia with nearly 1,000 clubs and 90,000 registered members. Swimming is unique as it is a life-skill, a sport and a recreation.
Over 4.5 million Australians swim every week – that’s 1 in 6 people.
Swimming Australia’s vision is to create a nation of swimmers admired by the world. Swimming continues to be Australia’s most successful Olympic sport.
