The ONCORE Academy brings programs independently, as well as partnering with organisations to develop and deliver new and exciting initiatives. Our current programs include:
SQ Trifecta Workshops
Together with Swimming Queensland, the ONCORE Academy believe that to get the best out of yourself, you have to become the best version of yourself. This is a continual, active process of making choices that lead to positive change and personal growth - both physically and mentally!
Trifecta Workshops have been designed to target the development of specific skills both in the water and on land, to ensure both the body and the mind are working together to thrive. Each one will focus on a different element and will be targeted at different age groups. Make sure you keep your eyes out for one that grabs your attention!
Within each Trifecta Workshop, you will hear from World and Olympic level athletes, sharing their experiences and what they found helped them to reach the top of their sport. You will then jump in the water to work on swim-specific skills - and they will be in there with you so you can watch, learn and do! Lastly, there will be an opportunity for you to have a photo, get things signed or ask them questions.
Without the support of family, athletes do not reach their goals, so parents and guardians are not only welcomed to come along, but are encouraged to stay and learn too.
With limited spaces available at each workshop, be sure to get in quick to secure your spot!
Swimmer Clinics and Staff Workshops
ONCORE Academy Swimmer Clinics and Staff Workshops are held at your pool, these are a great way to get your swimmers and staff educated and practiced in the use and benefits of ONCORE. Participants will be taught the importance of Fundamental Aquatic Skills through learning the drills centred around improving body position, body awareness, shoulder stability, core strength, core body alignment, feel and hold of the water. These are a great addition to your everyday program, or to add something special to your weekends or school holiday sessions.
The total price for Clinics and Workshops depend on your location. A great option is to partner with a couple of local programs near you and host a combined Clinic/Workshop for all to participate. Also, there are often grants available to Clubs that can be used towards hosting Clinics, developing your members and purchasing training equipment!

SQ Aquatic Body Alignment
In partnership with Swimming Queensland (SQ) and its Regional Associations, The ONCORE Academy delivers a series of development opportunities across Queensland each year to invited SQ members as part of their Development Program.
Since 2017, over 1000 athletes have taken part in Aquatic Body Alignment Clinics throughout Queensland where they were introduced to the Fundamental Aquatic Skills required for fast and efficient swimming.
These clinics are an ongoing program, so keep your eyes out for a possible invitation from SQ and the opportunity to improve body position, core stability and strength, feel and hold of the water with former World Champion and World Record holder, Jade Edmistone!
If you would like to grab your own set of ONCORE to practice the drills you learnt, you can buy it here!
Your Club can save by purchasing more than 10 sets - send us an email for more details!

McDonalds ONCORE Water Literacy
Building on the success of the Aquatic Body Alignment Clinics, Swimming Queensland, as part of its relationship with Brisbane McDonalds, is joining with us to bring even more fundamental development opportunities direct to affiliated clubs in Brisbane!
With a focus on coach and swimmer education, participants will be introduced to the Fundamental Aquatic Skills required to build the best foundation possible for fast and efficient swimming. These one-hour sessions will run through why these skills are essential and how to strengthen them.
Don’t worry if you have worked with ONCORE before, these skills need constant practice as you grow and develop, so any chance to spend time on them is well worth it. Plus, these sessions are delivered by Jade Edmistone or Jess Schipper, so you will be able to meet a World Champion!
As part of this fantastic opportunity, we are offering clubs a discounted kit in order to continually practice and bring the drills learnt into their regular training program. Each kit comes with 25 sets of the McDonalds ONCORE, complete with a storage bag, making it easy to use and look after for only $500 (RRP $650). Plus, participants will get a voucher from McDonalds for themselves and a special adult in their life - thanks Maccas!
If you would like to grab a kit for your club, order them here.
If your Brisbane Club is affiliated with Swimming Queensland and would like to organise a session, send them an email and they will be in touch soon!
