It’s been all fun with a splash of education as hundreds of students across our region turned out once again for our annual VICSWIM program.

Held in January each year, the VICSWIM program focuses on teaching children swim and water safety skills, setting them up for a lifetime of fun in and around the water.

This year’s program was hosted across 7 facilities spanning from Merbein to Murrayville, with each location hosting the 5-day intensive program and students gaining access to qualified instructors for a 30-minute lesson each day.

Murrayville Pool Captain, Brady Watson, who worked at the pool on each day of the program said “It was really great to watch kids who were too scared to even put their face in the water on Day 1 jump in and swim right across the pool by the end of the week!”

With so many fantastic pools and open waterways available at our doorstep for families to enjoy, the development of swim and water safety skills of all children is vital in keeping them safe this Summer! If you are yet to enrol your child into swim lessons, you are encouraged to contact our team on (03) 5018 7500 for further information.

Aligned Leisure wish to thank VICSWIM for their continued support to our region in delivering this program, and to all families who enrolled and enjoyed the program with us this year!

Check out the fun the kids and their teachers had while learning vital water safety skills.
