Fun, safe, good for your health

Learning to swim has it all!



Nearly 1000 registered swim schools across the nation will actively engage in this campaign, orchestrating a wide range of educational activities designed to equip students with vital water safety skills.

SWIM Schools Australia advocate that swimming year-round, learning and abiding by vital water safety skills, and participating in the SWIMSAFER Week, collectively contribute to helping children not only become safer, smarter, and stronger in the water but also in their day-to-day lives.
SWIM It Forward
We are excited to continue the SWIM It Forward initiative as part of this year's SWIMSAFER Week. Our research indicates that 41% of Australian children are currently not enrolled in swimming lessons. Concerns about their children being too young and the perceived cost of swimming lessons are among the top reasons cited by parents. Learning to swim is a fundamental preventive measure that parents can take to ensure their children's safety in and around water.

Our goal is to make this essential education accessible to more children. For just a $20 (tax deductible) or the cost of one swimming lesson you will be helping those most at risk of drowning. The more children we can get into swimming lessons, the lower the risk of drowning becomes. Please help us out.

We are asking Swim Schools and Swim Clubs to jump on board and help us with this worthy cause. Set up your own fundraiser goal, spread the word and start fundraising. Let's get more kids in the pool and learning how to swim.

Head over to the SWIM It Forward project page and sign up. You will get your own fundraising sub-page where you can track your progress, and you will be helping us reach our national goal. Join us in making a real impact.
