Kott Gunning has signed an agreement with the Western Australian Swimming Association (SWA) Inc to be their exclusive legal partner thereby giving the firm bronze sponsorship status. SWA is the peak body for swimming in Western Australia representing 87 swimming clubs across the State.
The agreement will see Kott Gunning as the naming rights partner to the new “Kott Gunning Coach Development Programme” aimed at increasing the number of high quality coaches in WA. The firm will also provide support to those clubs that may require legal advice from time to time through an initial 20 minute telephone consultation on a no cost and no obligation basis.
The agreement is the second sponsorship announcement for SWA in the past week and forms part of the Association’s more commercial approach to its role to grow participation numbers across the State.
SWA Chief Executive Officer Mr Darren Beazley welcomed the Kott Gunning announcement:
“Swimming in this State has a remarkable opportunity over the next few years to re-establish its place as the dominant participation sport in WA. In order to achieve this objective, SWA must partner with the best possible commercial partners in the State and Kott Gunning is such a partner. As our legal partner, the team at Kott Gunning will be important strategic advisors ensuring that our expansion into new areas is managed professionally and in manner that will ensure strong foundations on which to build”.
Kott Gunning Managing Partner, Stephen Williams, also welcomed the announcement:
“Kott Gunning is pleased to be a sponsor of Swimming WA and in particular, naming rights partner to the Coach Development Program. Swimming is a sport that reaches all levels of our community and to be able to assist in developing the highest quality coaches for our State and subsequently, the highest quality swimmers, is a goal that we strongly support. We are also pleased to be involved at Club level as circumstances arise.”
