ASCTA CARES prides itself in provision of benevolence support to ASCTA members in their times of need.


Given the unprecedented times, we have created an opportunity for members to either ‘pay it forward’ or benefit from the benevolence of members for ASCTA Membership.

If you are in a position to donate (tax deductible) toward the Membership renewal cost of a fellow member who may be experiencing hardship, please click here and you can do this via the Australian Sports Foundation.

Money raised through ASCTA CARES at national and some state conventions in addition to donations from members has enabled ASCTA to reduce course fees in cases of particular hardship.

Membership subsidies as per the ASCTA CARES Volunteer Coach Discount Policy for Volunteer Coach and Teacher members are as follows:

Member specific support on a case by case basis as approved by the Board in the event of hardship.
Course subsidies of up to 60% reduction in the licencing costs for identified students/course situations that are unable to afford the cost or for which the cost is an impediment.

ASCTA CARES is managed by ASCTA Vice-President Lynn Elliott, Swim School Manager Nancy Shaw and administered by the ASCTA CEO.

ASCTA CARES is very appreciative of member donations and the more funds raised, the more benefits to ASCTA members in time of need. Every cent raised directly supports ASCTA CARES
