About the Program

Swimming Australia are excited to again launch their volunteer recognition program - Local Legends. The program will run from December 2016 to August 2017 and recognises stalwarts of our sport who dedicate their time behind the scenes to ensure our sport remains one of the most popular past times in Australia.

It only takes 5 minutes to nominate your Local Legendand they could win the prestigious SAL Local Legend of the Year awarded at the 2017 Gala Dinner and $500 in prize money.

This year, all nominations will be uploaded to the SAL website at the end of each month (December – August). In September 2017, all nominations will be sent to their respective states where a State Local Legend will be selected. The State Local Legends will then be put forward to be awarded the 2017 SAL Local Legend of the Year.
All State Local Legends will receive return flights for two, one night’s accommodation and two tickets to attend the SAL 2017 Gala Dinner (date & venue TBC).

To make it easier to reward the volunteers in your club, you can download an editable certificate and present these individualised certificates to your Local Legends. 

Nominate your Local Legend and celebrate those who continue to inspire and promote volunteerism throughout swimming. 
The editable certificate can be found here. To edit the certificate, please save it to your computer and open the document with Adobe Reader).
