Swimming and water safety

With swimming pools and beaches a part of the Western Australian lifestyle, ensuring your children can swim competently and safely is a must for all families.

We provide swimming lessons for children through our Interm and VacSwim swimming programs.

VacSwim swimming lessons are in the October and December/January school holidays. Lessons are open to children over five years and under 18 years. Your children can join in the fun of learning to swim with lessons conducted at pools and open water venues across the State. Lessons are for beginners through to advanced survival, rescue and resuscitation.

Interm Swimming lessons are run through schools at all metropolitan aquatic leisure centres and most swimming pools. Lessons are also available at select beaches. Interm Swimming lessons operate at approximately 100 country locations throughout the State. The majority of programs are conducted in swimming pools with some at beach or open water venues, where possible.
