SWIM SAFER @ United Swimming 

Water Safety Information for Everyone

It’s crucial for all of us to acknowledge the importance of water safety and that children can never be completely safe around water.

No child, no matter how well they can swim, is totally safe, because accidents may happen. That's why swimming experts talk about making children safer around the water.

United Swimming works closely with SWIM Schools Australia and supports its SWIM SAFER campaign. As a critical part of our learn to swim program, we run a SWIM Schools Australia Swim Safer Week once a school term where we provide our students with the best opportunity to learn crucial aquatic survival skills.

These skills include the following:

  1. Sculling
  2. Treading water
  3. Floating
  4. Safe entry and exit from the water
  5. Techniques for clothed swimming survival
  6. Use of devices to assist rescue, and
  7. Basic swimming skills.
