Families are being encouraged to dive into the VICSWIM Summer Kidz program, with free pool entry at Casey Aquatic and Recreation Centre for students and their families enrolled in the program.
The offer is part of a commitment between YMCA Victoria and Aquatics and Recreation Victoria to increase the number of children who have access to swimming lessons through the VICSWIM summer program.
The low-cost, five-day summer intensive is targeted at families who may otherwise be unable to afford to participate in other swimming programs. It provides the fundamentals of swimming and water safety for primary school-aged children and runs for three weeks during the summer holidays.
Centre Manager at Casey ARC Susie Nogic said the Summer Kidz program met a community need and reducing the barriers to participation was an important driver for the organisation.
Enquiries regarding the Summer Kidz program at Casey ARC, can be made by calling the centre on 9705 5000.
