VACSWIM provides children (aged 5 to 13 years old at the time of the program) with opportunities to develop a range of water skills and positive experiences.

It covers water safety, confidence and competence in the water, personal survival activities and basic aquatic emergency procedures.

The program is conducted by qualified instructors in a controlled environment located at school pools, public and private pools, beaches and lakes throughout South Australia.

They are required to either

  • operate VACSWIM themselves
  • sub-contract the delivery of VACSWIM to another suitable individual or organisation
  • authorise another suitable third party to apply for funding to operate VACSWIM at their location.
