Swimming Victoria Inc (SVI) was established in 1893 and is the peak body for competitive swimming in the State. SVI is affiliated with Swimming Australia Limited (SAL) and also enjoys a close working relationship with the other peak swimming bodies across the country.
SVI represents the interests of approximately 160 swimming clubs and over 11,500 members throughout the State of Victoria.
SVI promotes swimming as a healthy lifestyle choice and encourages swimming at all levels by supporting and guiding members to enjoy their sport and maximise their potential. Through participation in quality swimming programs within supportive and friendly club environments, healthy lifestyle choices for our members are reinforced, further serving to strengthen both individual and community health.
As a not-for-profit organisation, SVI generates its revenue through sponsorships, government grants, membership and events. Income and funding is re-invested back into the sport for special projects, development squads, activities and education, with direct benefits to members enhancing swimming experiences and opportunities.
At grass-roots and club level, the sport is largely delivered by active volunteers who give their time to assist the day-to-day running of clubs. An equally active and dedicated number of volunteers act as Officials, without whom, swimming events could not run smoothly.
