Swimming WA is proud to be Duke 4Sport partner with the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, a global youth development program empowering young Australians aged 14-24 to explore their full potential.
Participants must learn or develop a skill, volunteer, improve their physical wellbeing and experience a team adventure in a new environment. Every Award is different, with qualified Award Leaders helping to guide Participants through all stages of their Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.
