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.
From Thursday, 2nd February we will again be taking appointments to come in and speak to our Member Relations Team about enrolling yourself or members of your family in the WynActive Swim & Survive program at AquaPulse in 2017. The period in which we will be able to accept new enrolments will be reviewed based on the demand for spaces and we will keep you updated via our Facebook pages regarding the availabilty of appointments.

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.
WynActive Welcome Packs are available for collect by current members from AquaPulse Services Desk from 9am Monday, 9 January, 2017 (one pack per member).
All current members have been automatically re-enrolled into the same lesson day and time that you had in Term Four 2016.
Skills and knowledge learnt 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.
