The Y supports the We Swim campaign

December 15, 2021 Recreation

The Y  is pleased to be a supporter of the We Swim campaign, a national campaign to inspire parents across Australia to take action to ensure their children enjoy all the benefits of swimming, from the fun stuff like splashes, dives and races to the many health and safety benefits of being in the water.

The key focus of the campaign is to encourage parents to enrol their children in lessons, whether they’re new to swimming or have dropped out too early – with the aim to ensure all children stay in lessons long enough to achieve and exceed the national benchmark for swimming and water safety, to swim continuously for 50 metres and float in deep water for 2 minutes by 12 years of age.

Enrol in a swimming lesson with the Y today.
