Aqua Skills 55+ 

People over 45 years of age account for a large proportion of drowning incidents in Australia and, as our population ages, this continues to increase.

Aqua Skills 55+ is a water safety and lifesaving skills initiative for people aged over 55 years. The course is structured as four-week refresher suitable for people of all skill levels, so whether you're an everyday swimmer or only dip your toe in occasionally - this is for you!

This practical program will provide you with the skills to deal with emergency situations, personal survival techniques and a thorough understanding of water safety knowledge to reduce the likelihood of drowning. It's a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and have fun! 

The program is run across Perth and is currently FREE for individuals over 55 years. Upcoming sessions are listed below. Please complete the form below for information on how to register.
