Be Safer in the Water

Research conducted by the Royal Life Saving Society Australia indicates that people in the following categories may have a reduced understanding of their own swimming ability, and therefore may be more at risk in the water.

At Monash Sport, we want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable experience in and around the water. If you are in one of the higher risk categories, it is important to identify yourself to Monash Sport staff.
