First Swimming WA endorsed school

Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School has been recognised as Western Australia’s first Swimming WA endorsed school.

Bob Marshall, Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School Swimming Coach, said it is an honour to be the first school in WA to be endorsed.

“Grammar has provided students with high quality swimming training for more than 20 years. The accreditation from Swimming WA recognises the School’s commitment to the swimming programme,” Mr Marshall said.

“All of our coaches are fully accredited and this endorsement will ensure we have access to resources from Swimming WA to enable our coaches to remain up-to-date on the best swimming practices and provide a competitive programme for our swimmers.”

The School has attained Gold status by meeting a number of selection criteria developed by Swimming WA.

Some of the eligibility criteria includes offering at least five sessions per week, 50 per cent of the school team must be Swimming WA members and being a Swimming WA Ambassador Programme participant.

Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School’s Swimming Team have competed in the Rottnest Channel Swim for the past 19 years plus a number of other competitions across the region including the Busselton Jetty Swim and interschool events.
