The Essence of Australian Sport

In Australia we are proud of our sporting ability and our reputation as a nation of good sports. Our society expects high standards of behavior from all people involved in sport, and it is vital the integrity of sport is maintained. At every level of sport, the principles of fairness, respect, responsibility and safety should be maintained.

Swimming Australia is at all levels, committed to upholding the principles of:

Fairness - Operating within the spirit of the rules, never taking an unfair advantage and making informed and honorable decisions at all times.

Respect - Recognising the contribution that people make to sport, treating them with dignity and consideration as well as caring for the property and equipment they use.

Responsibility- Taking responsibility for one’s actions and being a positive role model at all times.

Safety - Encouraging healthy and safe procedures, preventing and reporting dangerous behavior, while demonstrating concern for others.
