Lots of in-water practice. Hands-on teaching activities that are fun for everyone. An emphasis on solid swimming strokes and skills. These key components of our Swim for Life™ program combine to create life-long swimmers.
Our swim lessons programming, for students of all levels and abilities, is built around the Lifesaving Society Swim to Survive™ standard, which stresses orienting yourself after falling into the water, supporting yourself at the surface and swimming to safety. Swim with us and learn skills that last a lifetime.
