SunSmart Healthy Club KickStarter Competition



Healthway is delighted to partner with Swimming WA to support Swimming WA Clubs across WA to be SunSmart.

Swimming and being outdoors go hand-in-hand, so recognising the dangers of UV exposure and being SunSmart is crucial for swimmers’ safety.

Swimming WA is pleased to announce the return of the SunSmart Club Competition, a co-funded initiative from Healthway and Swimming WA. 

The SunSmart Club Competition provides an incentive for Swimming WA Clubs to identify and address a range of issues to increase awareness and knowledge of SunSmart sun safety policies.

Importantly, we want our Clubs to teach their Members the importance of sun protection, and like you, we want all swimmers to be actively adopting the SunSmart practices into everyday life.

The SunSmart Club Competition will provide the winning application from a Swimming WA Club with funding to increase SunSmart initiatives for its members.
