In 2013 Swimming Victoria is excited to offer AUSTSWIM’s Making Aquatics a Terrific Experience Community Seminar (MATE); an innovative and interactive community seminar aimed at optimising health and wellness opportunities for people with medical conditions and/or disabilities.
The MATE seminar provides participants with the information, skills and confidence to take a person with a medical condition and/or disability to the pool for recreation activities.

The community seminar is suitable for: Family Member (Parents, Partners, Friends, Siblings, Support Person or Carers: Personal Assistant, Personal Trainer, Disability Leader.)
