Swimming Lessons

Tue, 11 Aug 2020

Fantastic news! You can now enrol your children in swimming lessons for both the October and January holidays.

Whether your children are learning to swim, improving or building their skills, or aiming for their Bronze Medallion, there is a program that is perfect for them.

October swimming is a great time to get your children ready for summer. You can kick start their lessons, get them back into the water and help them build their confidence and skills.

In summer, VacSwim is a terrific activity during the long break. Whether you are at home or on holidays elsewhere in WA, there are over 180 pool and beach locations to choose from. Your children will have fun and become safer and more confident in the water.

Children who complete Stages 13 to 16 through VacSwim enjoy the benefit of having their award fees waived by Royal Life Saving Society WA.
