ASC Play Well Grant


Masters Swimming Australia has been announced as a recipient of the Australian Sports Commission’s (ASC), ‘Play Well’ Participation Grant to engage and connect the sport to those who face the greatest cultural barriers in the community.

Masters Swimming Australia is pleased to have received a Play Well Participation Grant from the Australian Sports Commission. We will be using the grant to deliver the Transition 2 Masters program (T2M) designed for adult Australians to progress their swimming and water safety skills, becoming more comfortable around water and to provide physical, mental, and social benefits. The program will help adults to continue their swimming journey and sustain participation in the sport.

The ‘Play Well’ Participation Grants is one of the first initiatives to be delivered from Play Well – Australia’s Sport Participation Strategy, which aims to ensure everyone has a place in sport. The strategy is designed to change the way participation in sport is connected, delivered, and supported across Australian communities.

Masters Swimming Australia General Manager, Sarah Pisterman thanked the ASC for recognising the importance that Masters Swimming Australia has in continuing the swimming journey for adult Australians and bringing communities together saying, “We’re thrilled to be a recipient of the Play Well grant as it closely aligns with our strategic vision to enrich and inspire adults to swim for life. We’ve been focused on building a stronger and inclusive pathway for adults 18yrs+ from all backgrounds into Masters swimming and this grant will be an incredible opportunity to meet the needs of those adults in their swimming journey. As an organisation, we are looking forward to working together with the ASC to fulfill and promote our vision”.

More information about Masters Swimming Australia’s ‘Play Well’ program will be released in due course.
