LIWA Aquatics to present new Watch Around Water ‘Facility of the Year’ Award

LIWA Aquatics to present new Watch Around Water ‘Facility of the Year’ Award
March 9, 2016

Western Australian aquatic management peak body LIWA Aquatics is to recognise the achievements of Watch Around Water facilities over the past 12 months in promoting safe supervision messages to their patrons with a 'Facility of the Year' Award.

Facilities will be encouraged to nominate themselves for the award by demonstrating what innovative strategies and/or resources they have developed and implemented to promote the program messages.

LIWA Aquatics is looking for facilities that have demonstrated innovation in developing new strategies to engage with their community such as event promotions, new resources developed or even working with other community groups (schools, local media, child care centres) to promote the program messages.

The Facility of the Year will receive a pool inflatable from Aflex Technology, free Watch Around Water registration for next season and a banner for their centre promoting them being the Facility of the Year.

Watch Around Water is an industry driven water safety program that contributes significantly to ensuring the safety of, and reducing risk at, public pools.

The nomination form asks facilities to highlight how they are proactive in promoting the Watch Around Water program to their community.

Nominations close on 31st May 2016 with winners to be announced at the LIWA Aquatics Annual Conference at the Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle on 15th and 16th August 2016.
