Disabilities

WIRAC is committed to extending opportunities to everybody no matter what goals and abilities you have. WIRAC links with schools, community groups and local government bodies to promote and increase more opportunities for our community.

Sports abilities has been designed to offer a chance for people with disabilities to interact with each other while undertaking a physical activity. Our qualified and experienced Special Needs Swimming Instructors teach adults and children with disabilities to swim and exercise in the water.

The YMCA Swimathon is the main fundraising event of the year for people with disabilities. The efforts of the community of Warwick has allowed for the purchase of a new pool hoist. An aquatic fun day is held each year in conjunction with Swimming Queensland. These days are designed for children and adults with a disability to enjoy fun water activities and gain aquatic skills and confidence, in a relaxed and safe environment.

WIRAC pool closed for winter maintenance

Southern Downs Regional Council and YMCA have taken advantage of the recent COVID-19 lockdown to undertake necessary winter maintenance on the Warwick Indoor Recreational and Aquatic Centre pool.

While the gym facility has now reopened following the easing of social distancing restrictions, the pool remains closed during continued works.

WIRAC Manager Karen Peters said that it was prudent and necessary to conduct regular and routine maintenance of the facility.

“The pool facility and WIRAC as a whole is a hub for the local community and maintaining our facilities ensures they are available for members and visitors to enjoy,” she said.

“The COVID-19 closure gave us a head start to undertake some winter maintenance works and minimise the down time to the community.

“The pool will reopen as soon as maintenance is completed.”

The YMCA and Council are working closely together to ensure the pool will be operating safely and at full capacity as soon as possible.

The YMCA is committed to ensuring all important measures are put in place to ensure everyone's safety, and that we meet the Government guidelines via a COVID Safety Plan.
