Opportunities available at West Coast Swimming Pools

30 October 2017

The roll-out of the West Coast Aquatic Facilities Strategy continues with West Coast Council currently seeking expressions of interest for people to operate a variety of programs and activities at the Rosebery and Queenstown Swimming Pools for the upcoming season.

Suitably qualified individuals, businesses or community organisations interested in offering any of the following activities are encouraged to submit expressions of interest:

  • swimming and aqua fitness classes
  • sports activities
  • personal training
  • education/ training opportunities
  • other wellness related activities
  • exercise rehabilitation
  • food and beverage related services
  • birthday parties or events
  • activities suitable for specific age groups: infants, children and adults, older adults, or all abilities

“This opportunity is in line with Council working towards implementing the recommendations adopted in the recently completed West Coast Aquatic Facilities Strategy,” Council General Manger Dirk Dowling explained.

“It also continues Council’s drive to encourage participation in healthy and active lifestyles initiatives and social opportunities across the West Coast, as well as provide more services at our swimming pools that can benefit the community.”

The expression of interest relates to the 2017-2018 swimming pool season which is scheduled to commence 1 December, with the Queenstown and Rosebery pools operating through to 28 February 2018.  In line with the adopted strategy and business plan, the Zeehan pool remains closed this season to enable works to be completed.

Council continues to engage @leisure to manage the implementation of the strategy, with the consultants working with Council staff across a variety of areas. 

“We have listened to what the community talked to us about during the engagement process and provision of programs was a key need highlighted,” Mr Dowling said.  “We also recognised the desire for the return of season ticket passes and will also offer ten ticket multi-passes this season.”

Recruitment of a Pool Coordinator and pool staff are also in their final stages.

Expressions of interest close 8 November, with more information available from the public notices section of Council’s website.
