Swim and Survive
The Eltham Leisure Centre has partnered with Royal Life Saving to provide our community with the Swim and Survive program.
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.
Wonder, Courage and Active
Wonder, Courage and Active have been chosen as the Swim and Survive program titles to reflect the hopes and aspirations of children and families as they embark on a lifetime of fun and safety in the water.
Each program is structured into skill strands that ensure a balanced, comprehensive instructional approach to a child’s aquatic education.
Wonder – 6 to 36 months
A water familiarisation program for parents and their children aged 6 to 36 months.
Courage – 3 to 5 years
A program that builds water confidence for preschool aged children between the ages of 3-5 years.
Active – 5 to 14 years
A swimming and water safety program for school aged children between the ages of 5-14 years.
At the Eltham Leisure Centre we also have swimming lessons for teens and adults. Whether you have never swum before, or wanted to improve breathing and stroke technique, we have classes available for everyone of all skill levels.
