On Wednesday the 8th October the YMCA was advised by the Southern Downs Regional Council that we had won the tender to manage the Warwick Indoor Recreation and Aquatic Centre (WIRAC).
Senior Management staff will be having discussions with the Council today and until that conversation has been had and the contract viewed we are unable to provide details of commencement dates or specific management guidelines.
“The YMCA is delighted to be awarded the management contract for WIRAC and look forward to working closely with the Southern Downs Regional Council to continue to provide a friendly, professional and exciting place for the people of Southern Downs to enjoy” says Alan Bray – CEO YMCA Brisbane.
WIRAC is a fantastic community facility, and the YMCA will aim to provide a broad range of services in line with community needs and in consultation with local stakeholders in Warwick and surrounding communities.
Some changes and improvements to the operations at WIRAC will be expected over time. The YMCA will be reviewing the operation once we are on the ground and will make any decisions from there.
As Australia’s largest provider of aquatic and recreation facilities, the YMCA will be bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to operations at WIRAC and to support the local communities.
The YMCA is already building a local presence in the region as operators of the YMCA Camp Leslie Dam and conducting YMCA Outside Schools Hours Care services at The Scots PGC College in Warwick.
