SAFER. SMARTER. STRONGER.Between 21-27 November 2022, SWIM Coaches and Teachers New Zealand is holding its annual SWIMSAFER Week.
Registered swim schools will participate in the campaign, and coordinate educational activities for students to gain vital water safety skills.
SWIM Coaches and Teachers New Zealand advocates that swimming year-round, learning and abiding by vital water safety skills, and participating in the SWIMSAFER Week will not only help kids become safer, smarter and stronger in the water, but in everyday life as well.
SWIM It ForwardAs part of SWIMSAFER Week this year we are introducing the initiative Swim It Forward. Our research shows 48% of New Zealand children are not currently in lessons, with a major reason being affordability. This year 8 children under fourteen drowned. Learning to swim is a major preventative measures parents can take. Our aim is to help more children receive this vital education. For just $20 (tax deductible) or the cost of one swimming lesson you will be helping those most at risk of drowning. The more children in lessons the lower the risk of drowning. Please help us out
We are asking Swim Schools and Swim Clubs to jump on board and help us with this worthy cause. Set up your own fundraiser goal, spread the word and start fundraising. Let's get more kids in the pool and learning how to swim.
Head over to the SWIM It Forward project page and sign up. You will get your own fundraising sub-page where you can track your progress, and you will be helping us reach our national goal.
