Well know and respected in the community, coach Dick Caine has been coaching and teaching families, producing Olympic and World Champions for over 45 years. This page showcases some of the many tributes and awards he has been recognised with in his highly successful career.
Dick has been recognized by John Howard, the former Australian Prime Minister, several Civic Councils, a number of Board of Directors and literally tens of thousands of individual boys and girls who are now mum’s and dad’s, with a second generation of people learning how to swim or stay fit. Tens of thousands of young Australian boys and girls have trained with Dick at Carss Park Pool & Gyms for various sports, and some have gone on to National and International superstar status.
Many of the tributes below also recognise and highlight the contribution of this wonderful facility to all the local schools, sporting clubs and community at large, who for many years have regularly used the Carss Park War Memorial pools and gyms for fitness, recreation and health.
