VACSWIM 2021 Lane Restrictions

Advance Notice regarding facility access during VACSWIM

VACSWIM 2021 Newsletter

We are excited and privileged to offer the VACSWIM program this year, particularly given the current Covid 19 climate. VACSWIM is an iconic South Australian summer institution aimed at teaching children water safety techniques and confidence within aquatic environments like ours, we proudly support this annual program making our community safer.

This year in order for the program to operate there are several changes we are implementing for the safety of all community members and staff at our facility. These controls will guarantee that the facility operates efficiently and safely under the current pandemic restrictions, ensure that we are meeting all legislative requirements and set a socially responsible example for our users. We acknowledge that some of these restrictions may present challenges to our customers. However, after due consideration, we believe these changes are necessary and will enable us to safely facilitate this year’s VACSWIM program and meet our capacity and social distancing requirements

  • Recreational Swimming will not be available while the program operates between 9am and 2pm January 4 to January 14 (excluding weekends), as we simply do not have the water space to facilitate this safely
  • A maximum of 4 x 50m lap lanes only, will be available in the main 50m pool during program hours

Please note as soon as we can make recreational space available we will do so, and remember if you do wish to visit the facility this summer for either recreation or lap swimming, we would love to see you. But first please consult our Book a Swim web page to pre-book your visit and read and understand our current revised operating conditions.
