TRIPLE Olympic gold medallist and SunRice ambassador Stephanie Rice is inviting Central Queensland swimmers to join her swim squad.
Steph's Swim Squad is an online program designed to inspire our next generation of elite swimmers as Stephanie shares some of her secrets to success.
Swimming training videos, nutritional information and squad updates will be released monthly for both parents and kids throughout next year, irrespective of whether they are selected as one of the 10 lucky squad members.
Swimmers from Central Queensland under the age of 18 wanting to learn from the three-time gold medallist are encouraged to apply at the specially designed Steph's Swim Squad application on the SunRiceFoods Facebook page.
Stephanie will personally select 10 young swimmers from these entrants who she will also mentor over the next six months.
Those under the age of 13 wanting to win the opportunity to be a part of Steph's Swim Squad can also do so via their parent's Facebook page.
"It's very exciting to be the front of a mentoring program like this which will hopefully encourage young kids from Central Queensland to strive to become accomplished swimmers and possibly even represent their country at the highest level," Stephanie said.
"This is an opportunity for me to share my swimming experiences with my new squad members and the rest of Australia in a format which has never been done before."
Applications for Steph's Swim Squad are currently open and close Friday, January 20, 2012.
Steph's Swim Squad is open to all those under the age of 18 who are residents of Australia.
