Become A Swim Instructor & Receive A $200 Voucher*!

Dive in and help us make a difference in the lives of others!

Each year more than 250 people drown in our waters, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Every Australian child should have access to swimming lessons. Unfortunately, we don’t currently have enough Swim Teachers to make this a reality for the kids in our communities. So, we’re doing a recruitment drive.

If you currently teach, have taught before, or it’s something you think you’d like to try, then you could be eligible for the incentive.

No quals? No problem! The first 100 people to register will get FREE training valued at $250.

Benefits Of Learning To Swim At A Young Age

Being in Australia we are surrounded by water wherever we go. By exposing children to water and swimming at an early age it will help prepare them for a life of fun activities such as pool parties, beach holidays, surfing, etc. With this being the case, we’ve found the top 5 benefits of learning to swim at a young age:

Life and life-saving skill:

To feel comfortable in the water and being able to swim is a life skill that will give you confidence and increase your water safety. Hopefully, you’ll never find yourself in a situation but if the time comes you’ll feel confident enough to hold your head above water and help those around you to do the same.

Physical benefits:

If you’re looking for a fun workout, you cannot beat swimming. Swimming is a full-body workout that engages your legs, upper body, core, lats and triceps. Although it might not seem like it, swimming will use more of your body’s major muscle groups than any other form of cardio.

Social Skills:

Going to swimming lessons or join a local swim club is a great way for children to play, interact and learn to take direction. This can set them up for social skills that will benefit them for life.

Challenging and rewarding:

Swimming offers a workout that can be both challenging and rewarding, whether you’re a new swimmer looking to improve your fitness or a competitive swimmer looking to improve on your personal best it will allow you to improve and feel great with every milestone.

Lifelong Skill:

Swimming is a skill that you are unlikely to forget over time. Similar to riding a bike, you may be out of practice but once you’re in the water it will come back. This is a great skill to have because as you get older, swimming has a very low impact on the body’s joint and can be a form of exercise you can continue to do.
