Swim Lessons

The Canadian Red Cross is winding down its swim lesson program, to focus on surging humanitarian demands in other areas. With the move out of swim lessons, Red Cross has endorsed the Lifesaving Society’s “Swim for Life” program.

Starting January, 2023, we will be following the new “Swim for Life” program. Swim Lesson names will be changing – view the conversion chart below to determine what level your child should register in.
