Summer season kicks off with Swim School Open Days

29 October 2021
Each year as summer approaches, Royal Life Saving WA assists our network of Endorsed Swim Schools to hold an Open Day at their centres to attract new swimmers as well as celebrate their existing swim family.

The campaign aims to drive home the importance of learning to swim, encouraging all members of the WA community to visit their local Endorsed Swim School to check out the great facilities and enrol in Swim and Survive lessons.

Every swim school is unique, but one thing community members can be sure of is that they are able to participate in a free Swim and Survive assessment to determine the best stage to enrol in. Open Day visitors can also take part in fun activities put on by the swim schools, with Royal Life Saving providing centres with some fun promotional items and giveaways.

It’s fantastic to see so many swim schools engaging with their local community and encouraging swimming enrolments. Endorsed Swim Schools provide the best in aquatic education, meeting Royal Life Saving safety standards and best practice for the delivery of swimming and water safety lessons. Last year saw 236,654 participants in our swimming and water safety programs.

“Swimming is an intrinsic part of the Australian way of life,” says Royal Life Saving WA Senior Manager Education, Trent Hotchkin. “Swim and Survive lessons are not only essential – they are lifesaving. Building swimming and water safety skills from young children right through to adults is vital work and the single most important investment we can make as a community to prevent drowning.”

There will be more swim schools opening their doors in the coming months, including Active Armadale, Toodyay Recreation Centre and Wanneroo Aquamotion.
