Registration for the upcoming session of swim lessons will begin at 6:00am on Wednesday March 1st, 2017.  This session will also include 4 new levels of swim lessons.

  • Swimmer 1 Advanced - For children that have gone through the swimmer 1 class and have not passed, or would prefer to be a bit more comfortable before moving to Swimmer 2 (We have introduced this level for swimmers that have not yet completed Swimmer 1, but are comfortable with the basics, such as entering the pool, putting their face in the water, etc. In this level we will focus on Front to Back Floats, Glides (front, back and side), Flutter Kick (front and back) and swimming with a PFD. This level is designed to better prepare swimmers for the Swimmer 2 level).
  • Swimmer 2 Advanced - For children that have gone through the swimmer 2 class and have not passed, or would prefer to be a bit more comfortable before moving to Swimmer 3 (This level is designed for swimmers that have not yet finished Swimmer 2, but are more advanced than the swimmers doing this level for the first time. In this level swimmers will work on Surface Support, Object Recovery in chest deep water, Flutter Kick (front and back), Whip Kick, Front and Back Swim and some interval training).
  • Fintess Swimmer (1 hour class) - For children that have passed Swimmer 6 and wish to continue in lessons and work on their physical fitness (The Fitness Swimmer program is for swimmers of any age who want to improve their overall physical fitness in the water. Fitness Swimmer provides a structured approach based on accepted training principles and practices including interval training. Participants set their own goals).
  • Rookie Patrol (90 Minute Class) - For children that have passed Swimmer 6 and are thinking of becoming a lifeguard.  This course is for children 10-12 years old and is a good introduction course for learning to become a lifeguard (Swimmers continue stroke development with 50 m swims of front crawl, back crawl and breaststroke. Lifesaving Sport skills include a 25m obstacle swim and 15m object carry. First aid focuses on assessment of conscious victims, contacting EMS and treatment for bleeding. Fitness improves in 350 m workouts and 100 m timed swims).
