VACSWIM 2016 Launch
20 November 2015
Leaders from the South Australian aquatic sector gathered to launch the iconic and highly regarded SA Water VACSWIM 2016 program, expecting up to 15,000 registrations before the 18 December closing date.
With the weather heating up – now is the time for families to consider engaging in safety programs such as VACSWIM that will prepare their children for upcoming aquatic activity.
The main VACSWIM 2016 program will kick off on Monday, 4 January 2016, with some providers offering a program in December 2015.
The timing respects the findings of the Royal Life Saving Drowning Report 2015 Data, which demonstrates January as the peak time for drowning deaths and incidents across Australia.
With an almost 60 year history, VACSWIM is the largest annual water safety event in South Australia, designed to proactively support children aged 5-13yo in developing a range of aquatic skills, increasing confidence in the water as well as learning personal survival activities and basic emergency procedures.
Within the VACSWIM initiative, water safety programs are delivered by Surf Life Saving SA, Royal Life Saving Society SA and YMCA and are offered at over 130 metropolitan and regional locations including beaches, pools and other recreational waterways across South Australia.
The significant delivery of VACSWIM calls for the support of over 600 qualified instructors.
Enventive who are also the parent company of ‘Life. Be in it’ will manage VACSWIM 2016 on behalf of the State Government. General Manager Neil Mackenzie explains that SA Water VACSWIM should not be confused with traditional learn to swim programs.
“Ideally VACSWIM should be viewed as a complimentary addition to equally as important swimming lessons. It’s about empowering children with the knowledge to make smart aquatic decisions,” adds Neil.
2015/16 marks SA Water’s 20th year of sponsorship support of VACSWIM. All programs meet the National Water Safety Education Competency Framework.
VACSWIM registrations are now open, families should register via www.vacswimsa.com.au before 18 December 2015.
