VACSWIM SA online enrolments for 2020-21 have now opened.
VACSWIM SA is a government funded initiative that’s been providing South Australian primary school children with water knowledge for more than 50 years.
VACSWIM SA provides primary school aged children with opportunities to develop a range of skills and positive experiences in the areas of water safety, confidence and competence in the water, personal survival activities and basic aquatic emergency procedures.
12,000 primary school aged children are expected to enrol at over 120 beach and pool locations across South Australia, with the support of Surf Life Saving SA, Royal Life Saving SA, YMCA and a number of independent providers.
VACSWIM is a week-long aquatic safety program (not a learn to swim program) that aims to teach children vital water safety and survival techniques that could save lives this summer. Including first aid, entering and exiting the water correctly, surf and sun safety and what a child can do if they find themselves in trouble.
Funded by the Government of South Australia, the majority of 2021 programs take place from Monday 4 January – Tuesday 12 January 2021. There are programs at over 120 pool and beach locations around South Australia.
In light of the release from the recent covid restrictions it also confirmed that the December regional pool programs will go ahead from 14 December.
Online enrolments for December and January programs are open now and close 5pm Friday 4 December and Sunday 20 December respectively. Some VACSWIM locations also offer onsite enrolments during the week the program is running.
For more information and all enquiries please visit the VACSWIM website.
