SA Water VACSWIM is an SA Government supported initiative that provides primary school aged children with opportunities to develop a range of skills and positive experiences in the areas of water safety, confidence and competence in the water, personal survival activities and basic aquatic emergency procedures. Since the 1950's the SA Water VACSWIM experience has become a rite of passage for generations of South Australian families, and makes a significant contribution to the safety of our waters.
Program providers (such as Surf Life Saving SA) run SA Water VACSWIM-endorsed programs at beaches, pools and lakes throughout South Australia.
Surf Life Saving SA delivers the "Surf and Survive" program at 40 beaches and open water sites across the state, employing over 200 young people and teaching vital safety skills to over 4000 participants
Program dates: The "core" dates for the program are Tuesday 3 - Wednesday 11 January 2017 (excluding the weekend). Some locations may offer different dates, depending on the community and staffing requirements.
