What is Integrity?
Integrity is the integration of outward actions and inner values. A person with integrity does what they say they will do in accordance with their values, beliefs and principles. A person of integrity can be trusted because he or she never veers from inner values, even when it might be expeditious to do so. A key to integrity, therefore, is consistency of actions that are viewed as honest and truthful to inner values.
A sport that displays integrity can often be recognised as honest and genuine in its dealings, championing good sportsmanship, providing safe, fair and inclusive environments for all involved. It will be also expected to ‘play by the rules’ that are defined by its code. A sport that generally displays integrity has a level of community confidence, trust and support behind them. The impact of this on their business cannot be underestimated.
The integrity of a sport will be judged by its participants, spectators, sponsors, the general public and more often than not, the media. The survival of a sport therefore relies on ensuring that ‘the sport is the same on the outside as it is on the inside’ and remains true to its values, principles and rules. Below are the sports policies in relating to integrity topics.

SwimmingSA recognises the great potential for people from all cultural and diverse backgrounds to participate in Swimming.
SwimmingSA is committed to a "swimming for all" philosophy. SwimmingSA incorporates inclusion strategies in all aspects of the sport, creating opportunities for all Australians to participate. Whether you choose to swim for fun and enjoyment, health and fitness, aspire to be a world champion or choose to be involved in a non-swimming role as a coach, official or volunteer, swimming provides many opportunities.
We are committed to ensuring swimmers with disability can participate in all aspects of the sport and we have been committed for many years to making inclusion simply part of what we do. SwimmingSA believes in taking a social approach to disability inclusion by putting the swimmer first, adapting to individual need and addressing both physical and attitudinal barriers to participation.
With the help of Swimming Australia and and other partner organisations we deliver programs and resources to support and develop our Swim Clubs, coaches and officials to understand the needs of people with disability and how they can create a positive and welcoming environment.
Swimmers with disability have the same opportunities to swim as everyone! There are also programs and pathways that support swimmers to learn and improve.
