Enrolment periods and VacSwim program dates for the 2015/16 season are shown in the table below.

Please refer to the specific program pages from the chapter headings above for more information about host locations.

Classes

Each standard program is the equivalent of 10 days (ie approximately 350 minutes of lesson time). When there are public holidays some programs may run over eight or nine days, where lessons may be lengthened by up to 10 minutes on these days.  Your child/ren will still receive the same total lesson time.  The same charge for a standard program applies, regardless of the actual number of days.

A five day short program will be conducted at selected centres in the afternoon of the second week of the October and January Program 1.  The Short Program will consist of 175 minutes of instruction time and swimmer achievement may be limited when compared to the longer 10 Day Program.  The Country Early Start program is also a 5 day program and lessons may be of a slightly longer duration.
