Swimming Australia have continued a partnership to operate GOswim Australia which will continue to develop and deliver an innovative and effective swimming and water safety program across Australia.

 The GOswim program is focused on contemporary experiential and activity based learning opportunity, encouraging and supporting students to explore pathways allowing them to participate in both competitive and recreational swimming.

Implementation of this high-quality, activity-based educational swimming and water safety program is designed to better integrate student learning outcomes into real-world settings, offering students the opportunity to:

  • Gain maximum participation and practice time in activities that encourage, mentor and support the learning process where the participants are active for most of the lesson
  • Be empowered to think, discuss and decide through experiential based learning where mentoring, guidance and challenge encourages them to use and enhance their knowledge, skill and understanding
  • Learn and understand essential components of personal survival and water safety elements while concurrently in addition to the development of establishing strong and effective swimming technique
  • Be supported by professional, qualified teachers as they progress through the curriculum.

The GOswim program has been built on a foundation of research and planning ensuring that the curriculum aligns with and in many cases exceeds the targets of peak organisations including:

  • The Federal Government’s Curriculum Framework – where the learning focus is experiential rather than command teaching
  • World Health Organisation (WHO) Drowning Prevention Implementation Guide – highlighting the importance of personal water safety and survival
  • United Nations – World Drowning Prevention Day
  • The Australian Water Safety Councils – Australian Water Safety Strategy 2030 (AWSS 2030)
  • UNESCO – International Charter of Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport
  • International Life Saving (ILS) – Drowning Prevention Policies

Our goal is to ensure we put fun back in learning swimming and water safety  and keep swimmers loving our sport for longer.

GOswim is live across all Belgravia Leisure facilities in Australia and are now expanding across other swim schools and aquatic facilities.
