Swimming Australia seeks input to research on barriers to disabled swimming
August 2, 2013

Swimming Australia has partnered with the University of the Sunshine Coast to establish a three year research project examining the barriers, motivations and outcomes of participation in swimming for people with physical disability.

People with physical disability aged 14 years or older or their parent/carer are invited to take part in the research by completing the survey below.

For more information please contact the Principal Researcher Katrina Murphy, on email: Katrina.Murphy@research.usc.edu.au

The survey can be completed at www.surveymonkey.com/s/Swimming_Inclusion_for_People_with_a_disability
