The purpose of this curriculum is to provide a foundation for development activities that will enhance opportunities for students to gain meaningful learning outcomes that aid their level of aquatic information, skill and comprehension for safer participation in, on and around the water.
Participants have the opportunity to complete a range of challenges across all streams and gain points as they achieve their milestones. Their progression will take them through various program stages until they reach a pinnacle point that can lead to aquatic industry employment opportunities, and/or lifesaving competition pathways.
Stages of the program are designed to challenge the individuals’ knowledge and skills whilst developing in other areas such as teamwork and overall fitness. Participants are rewarded based on effort as well as achievement making it unique to most other structured aquatic programs.
