Planning is well underway for a wonderful 2022 VICSWIM program. We have over numerous venues ready to offer the program in open water, inland waterways and indoor and outdoor pools. With registrations opening on November the 16th 2021, we are all excited about providing a memorable program for all participants.

We are working hard to ensure the VICSWIM 2022 is a COVID Safe event for all. We will continue to provide updates to all participants on how we will operate in a COVID safe environment.

We will have:

  • developed COVID safe plans for all locations,
  • ensured electronic QR codes or manual attendance sheets are available at all locations to ensure effective contact tracing
  • developed a procedure for all venues should they suspect or confirm a COVID–19 case in their venue

All COVID Safe documents are accessible below.
