SwimVAC is back for 2022

Royal Life Saving is looking forward to a summer back by the pool and our beautiful Australian waterways. We are planning for the return of our vacation swimming and water safety programs in January 2022, only this season we have a new and improved program on offer! Royal Life Saving’s new and improved SwimVAC program is a Swimming and Water Safety holiday program that runs over either 5 or 10 days. Aligned to the National Swimming and Water Safety Framework, SwimVAC programs encompass nationally recognised swimming and water safety benchmarks teaching swimming and personal safety skills to children of all skill abilities.

SwimVAC is targeted at children 3 years and up with the aim of getting as many children as possible to the 6 and 12 year old national benchmarks for swimming and water safety. For more information on the National Swimming and Water Safety Framework click here Swimming and Water Safety Framework | Royal Life Saving (drowningprevention.org.au) An extension lifesaving vacation program is also now available for higher level swimmers and is also aligned to the National framework.
