A program that builds water confidence for preschool aged children between the ages of 3-5 years.

Courage is the water confidence component of the Swim and Survive program, and is designed for children aged 3 to 5 years.

  • Entry and Exit Skills teach children to safely and confidently enter and exit the water using a range of basic techniques. 
  • Breathing and Underwater Skills develop breath control and relaxation when submerging the face and body in the water, which in turn builds confidence. 
  • Survival Skills include initial experiences using flotation aids for support in deep water whilst demonstrating personal survival and self preservation skills required for an emergency situation. 
  • Floating and Sculling Skills encourage independent floating on the front and back and basic sculling skills to propel the body in a range of directions. 
  • Movement and Swimming Strokes encourage the development of kicking and arm movement skills, basic independent mobility and working towards elementary swimming strokes. 
  • Water Safety Education focuses on the simple messages of never swimming alone, calling for help if in trouble and understanding basic pool rules to support water safety.
