Life Saving Victoria (LSV) and Aquatics and Recreation Victoria (ARV) are pleased to announce their continued partnership and investment into advocacy and industry representation through the development of the 2019-20 Victorian Public Pools: State of the Sector Report. Victoria’s two peak aquatic industry bodies are collaborating for the third year in a row to support a better understanding of the Victorian public pool landscape. 

Building on the legacy of independent state of industry reports, this collaborative publication is intended to provide a broad snapshot of the industry, enabling better tracking and comparison of key metrics such as industry size, breadth and social / economic value. The report acts as one true source of information, enabling improved analysis and evaluation and more informed decision making. 

The report includes review and analysis of: 

  • Industry insights 
  • Major project summaries 
  • Pool Safety Assessment review 
  • Research and Industry strategies 
  • Industry awards 
  • Social Impact of the industry 
  • New facilities developments 
  • Facility and technology innovations 
  • Industry profiles 

Critically, this year’s report aims to highlight the impacts of bushfires, smoke, storms and the COVID-19 pandemic on the Aquatic and Recreation Industry in Victoria. 

LSV and ARV would like to invite industry to provide photos, case studies, stories and any other topics of interest that your organisation feels could be highlighted in this important annual report. Please send any material through to: assessments@lsv.com.au or admin@aquaticsandrecreation.org.au  

Previous year’s State of Sector reports are available at https://lsv.com.au/pool-safety-services/state-of-industry-report/
