Since the Summer of 2022, we exclusively offer the Lifesaving Society Swim For Life program. What does this mean for you and your kids?
- Levels do not always correspond directly with other swim programs your child may have participated in (ie. YMCA Swim, Red Cross Swim Kids).
- Click here for a handy registration guide to make sure you are placing your child in the appropriate class.
- Program Focus:
- You may notice some differences in what your child is being taught. While both programs lead to capable and safe swimmers, the Lifesaving Society Swim For Life program focuses on 3 key strokes (front crawl, back crawl and breaststroke) and survival skills in the water (treading water, changing direction, safe entries) along with some important Water Smart messages repeated throughout the program (“always swim with a buddy”, etc.).
- Click here for more information about the Swim For Life program.
- Feedback Materials:
- Every child in the Swim For Life program gets a progress card on which we will provide feedback for each level. In addition, they will receive a level ribbon when they successfully complete a level.
Registration for Fall2023 Classes is now OPEN!

We also offer Lifesaving Society Swim for Life programs to schools during daytime hours. This is meant to supplement, not replace, personal water safety lessons as well as give many children the chance to learn basic water safety skills who might otherwise never have the opportunity. If your school does not currently take part in our Swim for Life program, why not advocate to your administrator, board or principle to get involved in this valuable collaboration?
For information about available times and fee-structure for school lessons, please contact Sonia Dodd: email@example.com or call (403) 742-4411
Drop-In Swim Times
Open swim times for individuals and families. The Hot Tub is usually available during these times as well. Pay a reasonable drop-in fee or purchase a 10x or long-term pass and drop in as often as you like!
Children under 9 must be accompanied in the water by a responsible parent, guardian or designated adult at all times within the facility.
Open swim time for individuals, families and friends. All ages are welcome. No lanes or restrictions, all pools are wide open. This is the time for adults and kids to splash and play and just have fun. Warm up in the hot tub, scale the rock-climb wall, speed down the water slide, or lay back on a floating toy.
Note: While this swim time is open to everyone, children under 9 years old must always be accompanied by a responsible adult.
A great time to bring in your younger kids or grandkids! Less raucous than Public Swim, any children (under 18) may only attend if they are accompanied in the water by a responsible parent or guardian. A great time to practice blowing bubbles, floats and jumping into the water. Warm-up in the hot tub or try the water slide!
Sometimes Family Swim coincides with Fitness Swim, which means families may not have access to the Main Pool. Check the pool schedule to be sure.
A special swim time set aside for those with sensory, developmental or physical special needs and their family and service workers.
The lanes are in! The kids are out of the way! There's nobody to get in your way! This is the time where the pool is set up for swimming laps, practicing your strokes, building your endurance, and getting in your exercise routine.

Leaders In Training (L.I.T.) Program
What is the Leaders in Training (LIT) Program?
The LIT program is a hands on opportunity for youth and adults 13 years and older to become familiar with the aquatic environment. They will work alongside SRC lifeguards doing tasks such as lifeguarding skill development, cleaning, shadow guarding, slide monitor, victim simulation for lifeguard situations, public relations and assisting with swim lessons.
This program is a great for youth and young adults who are interested in becoming lifeguards or swim instructors in the future. The program is also a great way to get involved in the community.
All hours accumulated while volunteering can be used in lieu of payment for swimming programs offered here at the SRC. For more information on how to use your volunteer hours to 'pay' for courses you wish to take, CLICK HERE.
