Our Swim School Membership program caters for students from 6-months of age and of all ability levels with classes available seven days a week. Our AUSTSWIM accredited Swim Teachers will ensure a fun and exciting learning environment while providing parents/guardians with feedback and updates regarding your child's progress.
The Swim & Survive program is a nationally recognised program developed by the Royal Life Saving Society Australia (RLSSA) and Life Saving Victoria (LSV).
Swim & Survive is a comprehensive swimming and water safety initiative that seeks to develop the swimming and water safety skills of children to prevent drowning and to increase participation in safe aquatic activities. At WynActive our goal is to provide this new and widely acclaimed program to develop your child’s skills for all aquatic environments.
Why Swim and Survive?
- One in five of all drowning deaths are people aged under 18 years
- 56 children drowned last year
- 91% of children aged 0-4 fell or wandered into the water
- 43% of drownings in rivers were children aged 10-14
- Males are four times more likely to drown than females
- Drowning rates dramatically increase as teenagers become young adults
The Swim & Survive program structure and level progression can be found in the Swim & Survive log book as part of your WynActive Welcome Pack.
Skills and knowledge learned in the Swim and Survive program provide children with solid foundation skills in swimming, survival and basic rescue skills.
The levels we will be conducting are Wonder, Courage and Active.
Each program is structured into skill strands that ensure a balanced, comprehensive approach to a child's aquatic education.
Wonder is a water familiarisation program for children aged 6 to 36 months.
Courage is a program that builds water confidence for preschool children between the ages of 3 and 5 years.
Active is a swimming and water safety program for children between the ages of 5 and 14 years.
We will also keep you informed via our Swim School Newsletter, distributed each term during lesson times.
