WASA ScholarshipsThe scholarship applications MUST be submitted by the affiliated club and not the individual swimmer WASA offers scholarships to the WASA members of affiliated clubs. These scholarships are available to members who have shown a commitment to swimming and have supported the association. For further information please contact your club organiser.
The scholarships are:
- The Dick Gallie Memorial Scholarship
- The WASA Winter Training Scholarship
- Northern Beaches Council Awards comprising Entry Passes to the Warringah Aquatic Centre to be used in conjunction with training with Big Blue
This scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving swimmer in memory of Dick’s contribution to WASA and School Swimming in NSW. Dick was a qualified referee who worked tirelessly at Warringah meets and mentored many of the current Technical officials. His greatest love was the school carnival season which he worked daily during January to April. Dick was also the treasurer of WASA for 16 years.
WASA thanks and recognises the generous support of Sydney North Schools Sports Association for their kind donation of the package of swimming products.

The WASA Winter Training Scholarship
As part of its commitment to providing ongoing support to its members, The Committee of the Warringah Amateur Swimming Association is offering up to four Training Scholarships throughout the winter swimming season (May to September) for coaching at an approved training provider of their choice.
The Scholarships, valued at $200 each, will enable up to four WASA swimmers to attend professionally-managed training sessions with qualified coaches at a centre of his or her choice during the 2017 winter terms.
This Scholarship is designed to maintain the momentum a swimmer has gained though the summer season and allow him or her to experience professional coaching.
