Water safety advocates are celebrating a decade of redesigning diversity in the aquatic industry with the AUSTSWIM Making Aquatics A Terrific Experience (MATE) workshop quadrupling course numbers and offering it nationally for the first time this year.
AUSTSWIM Ambassador and Olympic swimmer Brooke Hanson helped launch the MATE Program ten years ago, and said the aim remained the same; to make access to aquatics easier for people living with a disability, medical condition, or injury.
“With 1 in 6 people in Australia now living with a disability, the need for the program is greater than ever,” she said.
