SUBJECT: Aquatic Education, Competence and Swimming
TYPE: Survey
DATE: 2017


This report reviews the participation of young people aged 0 to 13 years who have been enrolled in a structured learn to swim program. The purpose of this investigation was to identify significant trends associated with children who have participated in structured learn to swim programmes. It should be considered a precursor to future research aiming to clearly identify the aquatic skills achieved by children participating in structured programmes along with the factors which influence a parents decision to withdraw a child from lessons.
