Swimming Victoria

Swimming Victoria is the governing state sporting association for swimming in Victoria.  Established in 1893, Swimming Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation representing the interests of approximately 160 swimming clubs and over 11,500 members. Swimming Victoria aims to lead the sport through successful partnerships, participation growth and performance excellence.  Swimming Victoria provides services and support to affiliated clubs and members as well as many partner organisations and their members in the aquatic and sporting industry.

Swimming Victoria generates its revenue through sponsorships, government grants, membership and events. Income and funding is re-invested back into the sport for special projects, development squads, activities and education, with direct benefits to members enhancing swimming experiences and opportunities.

At grass-roots and club level, the sport is largely delivered by active volunteers who give their time to assist the day-to-day running of clubs.  An equally active and dedicated number of volunteers act as Officials, without whom, swimming events could not run smoothly.

All Swimmers, Coaches, Committee Members and Officials must be registered each year with Swimming Victoria in order to have current membership coverage so as not to be placed at risk.

Swimming Registration

In July of each year, existing Kings Swim Club members need to re-join Swimming Victoria. All squad members need to be registered by the due date (usually the end of July).
