The QIS Swimming program identifies young potential swimmers who are seeking to learn and develop their skills in and out of the pool.
Athletes receive expert coaching and participate in both educational and practical development sessions as well as specific swimming fitness sessions throughout the program. Throughout the program athletes will be challenged to improve their performance to reach their full potential.
Swimmers will be recognised and recommended from local swimming clubs and swimming school programs. They can then apply for a scholarship and selection will be made accordingly.
Players will need to be willing to devote their time and effort to meet the program requirements. Players will also need to fall into the following age brackets:
A scholarship levy fee does apply to all athletes who are successful in becoming a QIS scholarship athlete. This scholarship fee covers the full cost of participation in the program including, but not limited to, training, education, materials and the QIS apparel kit.
Additional costs may apply for travel and/or accommodation at some stages throughout the program, though athletes and their parents will receive information regarding any additional costs well in advance of any such events or opportunities.
The scholarship fee must be paid in full prior to commencement of the scholarship program, unless a payment plan has been arranged and signed-off by QIS management.
