SWIMVAC (Holiday Program)

SwimVac: School Holiday Swimming

SwimVac is our much-loved school holiday program that complements our Learn to Swim 4OO Gold and Teams Programs, making it an effective skill progression exercise for current State Swimmers.

The intensive structure of the SwimVac Program creates a unique and rewarding experience for swimmers as they see significant progression in skill and confidence over a short period of time. Swimmers can book and attend all sessions for the duration of the holiday program (consecutive days), or book one week blocks. Between terms SWIMVAC runs for two (2) weeks, and for four (4) weeks over the Christmas break.

Get to know us

For swimmers new to State Swim, the holiday program is a great way to experience our style of teaching and get to know our program structures (and hopefully, come and join us!)

Why SWIMVAC?

  • Intensive learning

This program is especially helpful for: new swimmers starting with foundations; swimmers who want to work for specific technical development or fast-track skills; and even swimmers who just want to rediscover the joy of swimming.

  • Consecutive lessons

Consecutive lessons are key to consolidating learning, and inspires significant and lasting results.

  • Small class size

Our class sizes remain small to ensure swimmers receive hands-on instruction. This ensures your child gets the most out of their swimming lessons.

  • Use Make-Up 

Current State Swimmers: you can use your Make-Up Vouchers on SwimVac!

  • Continuity and progress

Build on your SWIMVAC experience: just keep swimming! Our Teachers recommend that after your Holiday Program, aim to swim a minimum of once per week in either 400 Gold or Teams Programs to keep the skill momentum and confidence going.
