Fitness Australia Accreditation


Monash Sport has received recognition from Fitness Australia (the fitness industry’s governing body) in order to be classified as a Quality Accredited Business (also known as a Centre of Excellence).

This level of accreditation is currently rare within the industry, with only six facilities obtaining accreditation Australia wide.
Monash Sport are also the very first University based facility in the country to be recognised in this way.

The accreditation was acheived by completing a demanding and stringent process, including a thorough externally conducted audit.  

The audit assessed a variety of factors relating to how Monash Sport operate including:
  • Organisational Culture and Values
  • Professionalism
  • Leadership
  • Member Services / Customer Care
  • Member Engagement
  • Staff Recruitment and Satisfaction
  • Occupational Health and Safety and Risk Analysis
  • Adherence to Industry Governed Standards and Practices
We pride ourselves on providing a welcoming and inclusive training environment where access to friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff is second to none. 
The way in which we provide our services and engage with members is unlike many other facilities and it’s great to have the industry’s governing body recognise the high standards we strive to achieve.

The achievement is a credit to all the hard work across the past few years to improve our facilities, services and programs, and  positions us as one of the premier sports facilities in Australia





Making Waves through Fundraising: MegaSwim Success



Year on year, Monash Sport is consistently delivering a high quality community support event in the form of MegaSwim. In 2018, in collaboration with City of Monash, we saw over 150 participants, mostly students, from 10 teams swim for 24 hours (6 - 7 October, 2018) with the ultimate aim to raise funds to help fight MS. 

With an overall 880kms swum to raise over $20,000, the fundraiser was a huge success.


MS is a disease that affects the central nervous system. More than 25,000 Australians have MS, with an additional 1,000 diagnosed each year. Most people are in their 20s and 30s when first diagnosed. About one in 20 Australians will be directly impacted through a diagnosed family member, friend or colleague. There is no known cause or cure.


Funds raised by the MS 24 Hour Mega Swim provide people living with MS the opportunity to follow a dream through the MS Go for Gold Scholarship Program. The program aims to provide people living with MS in Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory an opportunity to fulfil their potential in life by pursuing aspirations in the fields of employment, sport, travel, education or the arts.  Funds also support financial support programs and services provided by MS to benefit people living with MS.


The Monash MS 24 Hour Mega Swim is now in its 7th year and is one of the fastest growing community fundraising efforts. Monash Sport is proud to support this program, providing an important engagement opportunity to the Monash community.






Congratulations Noah for coming 5th in the World Triathlon Championships!

Name
: Noah Deubel



Role at Monash Sport: Lifeguard


Currently studying: Bachelor of Biomedical Science and Commerce at Monash University
 
Favourite swimming stroke and/or exercise: Depends on the day! But probably open water swimming.
 
What inspired you to start triathlon?   How did you get started?
I did a few triathlons growing up but started seriously at the end of year 12 when a teacher at school recommended I try out for the Victorian development program (I was swimming and running for the school at this point).
After making the Victorian team I began competing in the national series and it all went from there!

Recent achievement: 5th place (20-24 Age Group) at 2018 ITU World Triathlon Championships

What makes you passionate about Triathlon?
It’s the ultimate mental and physical challenge that requires a disciplined lifestyle to achieve success.
 
What's your next target and/or event you have in your sights?
Next for me I’m really not too sure, the build up to worlds at home in Australia was 18 months for me, so right now I’m just taking some time off to let the body recover and I’ll make a decision when it’s right about what comes next!
 
Well done Noah!
