Registrations for participation in School Swimming and Water Safety programs for the 2021-2022 season are now closed. Late registrations may be possible in certain circumstances - please contact the School Swimming and Water Safety office directly to discuss options.

Schools can choose between the new 5 day water safety program, the 10 day program or a blend of the two for different year groups.

The newly developed 5 day program focuses on water safety and introduces the use of life jackets, a “clothing day” and other essential water safety skills. This new program can be extended to all primary Year 2 and above regardless of prior swimming ability.

The registration system has been upgraded to meet the changing programs and facilitate more detailed preferences for schools. A guide on using the new system is available via the link below - it is recommended you read this guide and have it available during the registration process to assist with your application.
