Online enrolments

Online enrolment is a convenient way of enrolling your children into our programs and ensuring your place in VacSwim.

First time registration

To enrol online families must register with our online system.  This registration can be done at any time throughout the year regardless of enrolments being closed.  Please remember your username and password to enrol for future VacSwim programs.  Families do not need to register every year.

To register just visit the site below, complete your details and we will e-mail you a username and password.  Once signed in there will be a short registration wizard that will request the details for you and your children.  Once the wizard is complete you are ready to enrol.

To register on WAIVS - CLICK HERE

Enrolling in a program

When enrolments are open you will need to log in to WAIVS and enrol in your selected programs. 

To log in to WAIVS - CLICK HERE

Once logged in, you will need to:

  1. Click on "Enrolments" in the blue bar at the top of the screen.
  2. Under the "Enrol in one or more programs here" section tick each program you would like to enrol in and press "Add to Cart".
  3. Select the centre you would like to swim at (Metropolitan areas are required to choose at least 2 preferences, use the "Add preference" button to add another centre).
  4. Add all the children you wish to enrol and their stages (Stage information can be found on the  Stages and awards page).
  5. If you wish to swim with another group, select "Yes" at step 3 and add their group ID - we will try our best to accommodate requests to keep family and friends' lesson times together or allocate them as close as possible, however, specific lesson times cannot be guaranteed.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for each program.
  7. Press "CHECKOUT" and complete your payment using the Commonwealth Bank secure payment site.

Once enrolled, you will receive an e-mail notification of your successful enrolment details.  These details will also appear in the "Enrolments" section under the "Current Enrolments" heading on WAIVS.  If you do not receive an e-mail confirmation and cannot see any programs under "Current Enrolments" please contact VacSwim before enrolments for the program close.

  • If you are experiencing difficulties using the website or have any questions about the program, please contact VacSwim.
  • LESSON TIME REQUESTS - If you have a specific lesson time request you will need to email VacSwim after enrolling, but before the enrolment closing date, quoting your username and request.  Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate requests, specific class times cannot be guaranteed.  Refunds are not granted for 'unsuitable lesson times'.
  • SPECIAL NEEDS - if your child has a medical condition that requires any special considerations, please include this when enrolling and contact VacSwim immediately after enrolling online.
