Angelfish

The Angelfish program is our award winning inclusive and integrated swimming program for people living with a disability.

These classes are for children aged 3 years through to adults and are provided at the same cost rate as our mainstream classes. The Angelfish Program provides individuals with a lifelong skill which enables them to participate in a wide range of aquatic activities. Many people with disability are limited in the options available for participation in physical activity. Swimming is a skill that the majority of the population can develop and enjoy.

We have a large range of specialised equipment and communication resources available, as well as appropriately trained instructors, and a high level of support from our Swim School administration and deck customer service team.

Initial tuition is provided on a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio where the instructor assesses readiness for integration into a mainstream class. Integration is achieved gradually and the instructor remains with the student throughout this process. Once integration has been achieved the instructor continues to work as an aide within the mainstream class.

The Angelfish Program has been recognised with many awards and grants including:

  • Australian Swim Schools Association Inclusive Swimming Award (2017)
  • Finalist in the National Disability Awards for Excellence in Accessible Communities (2013)
  • Variety WA Grant for Inclusive Programs (2011)
  • Swim Australia Outstanding Community Service Award (2010)
  • 92.9 radio station sponsorship for equipment and training (2010)
  • Finalist in the Disability Services Commission Count us in Awards for Excellence in Access and Inclusion (2009) 
  • Healthway Grant: Expanding Physical Activity Opportunities for People with Disabilities (2008).
