Swim and Survive
The Diamond Creek Outdoor Pool has partnered with Royal Life Saving to provide our community with the Swim and Survive program.
The program has been updated to align with the recently released National Swimming and Water Saftey framework. Swim and Survive is a comprehensive swimming and water safety initiative that seeks to increase the swimming and water safety skills of all Australian children in order to prevent drowning and increase participation in safe aquatic activity.
Learn to swim, swimming lessons and infant aquatics are all terms commonly used across the aquatic industry for programs that seek to build swimming skills. Swim and Survive is all of these, but most importantly it ensures that the essential components of personal survival and water safety are provided, in addition to a process of developing strong and effective swimming technique.
Pre-School and School Aged Classes
Each program is structured into skill strands that ensure a balanced, comprehensive instructional approach to a child’s aquatic education.
Pre-School – 3 to 5 years
A program that builds water confidence for preschool aged children between the ages of 3-5 years.
School Age – 5 to 14 years
A swimming and water safety program for school aged children between the ages of 5-14 years.
