The Central Coast Academy of Sport swimming squad are back on the Central Coast after a hugely
successful squad tour to the ACT to compete in the ACT Swimming Championships.
A team of 14 athletes, two coaches (Graeme Carroll and Stephen Critoph) and a manager (Dimity
Douglas) made their way to Canberra for the two day event. The group was able to enjoy all the facilities at
the AIS, not only did they compete there they also stayed onsite. The AIS is Australia’s premier
elite sports precinct. A place that cannot be found anywhere else in Australia.
CCAS Head Coach Graeme Carroll said of the meet “The CCAS team put on an outstanding
display. The racing skills learnt from attendance at the Academy training days were on show at the
ACT Swimming Championships with outstanding results . The young team members stood up and
improved on entry times in every event with the leading ACT coaches remarking on our teams
professional approach to the meet. The CCAS team not only swam well but looked great in the
