Our two Olympic Coaches, Chris Mooney and Jan Cameron initiated the important long-term development programs at Flinders Aquatic Academy, and our senior Head Coach, Cameron Roberts, conducts DOLPHIN SQUAD training for athletes wanting to complete with our USC Spartans Age Group Swim Team

“Coach Cameron” provides a scientific approach to age group training and competition, and in his previous role as a Head Coach, he coached 150 State Age Medalists and 30 National Age Medalists within a 7 year period.

Cameron is also a big believer in building a team, and teaching young athletes values like Dedication, Respect, Commitment and Teamwork, that extend far beyond a swimming pool that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.

Our Dolphins Group provides a competitive pathway in swimming for those athletes that want to compete at Wide Bay Championships, Queensland State Championships, National Age Championships and International Swimming Competitions. Read the latest updates here on our Facebook Page.
