The team at the Corowa Aquatic Centre is excited to announce that we have been approved as an official provider of the NSW Government’s First Lap voucher program. Parents, guardians, and carers of children aged 3-6 years who have not started school or children who are enrolled in kindergarten in 2021 or 2022 can now claim a $100 voucher to help pay for swimming lessons!
By making swimming and water safety education more accessible for families, the First Lap program will help keep NSW children healthy, happy, and safe in and around the water.
Federation Council’s Duty Officer of Public Pools, Jo Laws said the aquatic team were delighted to offer this program for local families.
“This is a fantastic initiative by the NSW State Government and will go along way to helping our families fund the cost of swimming lessons for term two,” Ms Laws said.
What is the First Lap voucher and who is eligible to use it?
