VACSWIM 2015

 


The VACSWIM program is a South Australian government funded program for primary school age children aged 5 – 13 years, providing the fundamentals of water safety, survival skills & basic stroke skills.  

This year, Royal Life Saving Society SA managed and delivered the program on behalf of The Office for Recreation and Sport at approx. 70 school and private pools across the state.

Attracting 6,400 participants and employing approx. 250 qualified staff for the 7 day program was one of the biggest swimming programs delivered by the SA office. 



Congratulations and many thanks to all our dedicated staff and volunteers across the regions who worked throughout the program. Many of our Instructors participated in the VACSWIM program and have continued their love of water to be teachers themselves. 


 

Most locations commenced on the 5th January with the weather starting in the high 30's, the children were keen to get in the water and not get out. By the Thursday we were putting our risk plan into action with thunder and lightning across many regions including the CBD. This followed up with a cold couple of days saw our Instructors putting their teaching skills into full action encouraging the children to keep warm and still enjoy the program. 
 


Overall it was a very successful program and we look forward to working with the Office of Recreation and Sport again in the future.
