Due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic and resulting GAC closure, we will not be taking program registrations at this time
The Canadian Red Cross and the Lifesaving Society Offer Exciting Swimming
and Water Safety Programs for Your Children.
For a lifetime of healthy and safe fun around the water!
Red Cross Swim Preschool
Starting at the Otter level, this program is for children 3 to 5 years of age.
This five-level program includes the Otter, Salamander, Sunfish, Crocodile and Whale classes. All levels are un-parented and the children are with an instructor at all times. Each level is built around an aquatic animal theme and has its own mascot, which will make learning engaging and fun for young children.
Red Cross Swim Kids
A 10-level program for ages 6 and up.
This program for school aged children will help swimmers develop all six swimming strokes: front crawl, back crawl, elementary back stroke, breast stroke, butterfly and sidestroke. Participants will learn how to be safe around the water, and increase their fitness and endurance through fun activities. Children will be challenged to achieve personal bests in distance and time, which will be a strong motivator through all 10 levels.

- All participants must wear bathing caps.
- It is suggested that your child attend all nine (9) swim classes. Failure to attend all classes may result in your child not progressing to the next level.
- It is your responsibility to ensure that your child is registered in the appropriate level for his/her ability. If a child is placed incorrectly, we will attempt to put him/her in the correct level. If that is not possible, he/she will be removed from the class and the registration fee will be refunded, less the administration fee and the cost of the lessons attended.
