We are pleased and excited to announce that from January 2014 Commercial Swimming Club will be a Swimming Australia Podium Performance Centre. Commercial was one of only 15 successful clubs chosen Australia wide to participate in the program. The goal of the Podium program is to provide the world’s best environment for the development and preparation of Australia’s best swimmers as they push for international podium success in Rio, Tokyo and beyond. Under the guidance of our High Performance Squad Coach Simon Cusack, the club’s participation in this program over the next three years will ensure that our athletes and coaches are fully supported in a high performance environment. The partnership with Swimming Australia will provide the investment to support the outstanding work already being done.
Our High Performance squad, boasting swimmers such as Cate and Bronte Campbell, Christian Sprenger and Tommaso D’Orsogna, provides wonderful role models and inspiration for our younger swimmers. A daily reminder of where their hard work and dedication might take them. Today’s announcement is also a great step for the club as a whole as it continues its journey of high performance.
Commercial Swimming Club will also participate in the Swimming Australia Go Club program from 2014. The Go Club program is designed to provide a clear pathway for our swimmers and coaches to reach their full potential. It also importantly focuses on the operation of the Club and development and promotion of Swimming. More details will follow as the Club aligns itself with Go Club requirements.
We would like to acknowledge incredible amount of work that both Simon Cusack and Malinda Denovan put into our club’s successful application and celebrate this tremendous outcome.
