Expression of interest application

The Wangaratta Sports & Aquatic Centre has a proud history of serving the local community and looks today very different to when the original Basketball Stadium was opened in 1974.

Squash courts were added in 1987, aerobics studios in 1992 and a major redevelopment and addition of indoor pools opening in 2002. Like the Wangaratta community itself, the centre has grown and changed with the times.

In 2020 we completed a $16.88 million aquatics redevelopment, including the addition of a 50-metre competition grade outdoor pool.

At WSAC our Lifeguards have always played an integral role in keeping our patrons safe whilst they enjoy the use of our first-class Aquatic facilities.

The training includes theoretical and practical components with a mandatory online module to be completed prior to attending the onsite training. The training will take place over 2 days on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July from 9am – 4pm each day.
