The sponsorship from Wests Illawarra has been an integral component of the Wests Illawarra Aquatic Club’s success during 2013-14. The funds generously provided by Wests Illawarra have been used specifically to encourage the development of our junior swimmers as well as to enhance and maximise the opportunities for our elite athletes.
The funds have been used for referee’s awards which promote enthusiasm for and participation in Point score activities and are used to fund training and development camps for targeted junior swimmers and for our elite swimmers. These funds have provided invaluable opportunities and racing experience which is fundamental to the success of our swimmers. The programs we are running, with Wests Illawarra’s assistance have led to our Club proudly having two Commonwealth Games representatives, two Australian record holders, four swimmers representing Australia at international meets and a significant number of swimmers qualifying for nationals for the first time.
