Our Values

The Values of the Carlile Competitive Program and the Carlile Swimming Team were developed by a group of our stakeholders, reflecting the makeup of both the Competitive Program and the Carlile Swimming Team over a day long workshop. The group included coaches, swimmers, administrators, and company directors with each of the three Carlile Heritage clubs and the Carlile Swimming Team represented.

We want our core values to be reflected in the behaviour of every person associated with the Carlile Competitive Program and the Carlile Swimming Team. These core values are our fundamental beliefs, our guiding principles for behaviours and actions, they ensure we achieve our mission and our goals. Our core values are supported by our Behavioural Guidelines.

Our aim is to find ways to encourage our swimmers, coaches, administrators, directors, contractors, supporters and parents, and you to live our values.
