SWIM KIDS LEVEL 1
This is an entry level for children ready to move in shallow water. This level provides an orientation to the water and the pool area and introduces floats and glides with kicks. Children build their endurance by improving distance.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 2
This level helps the child build skills in front and back swims. Children are introduced to deep water activities and proper use of a Personal Flotation Device (PFD). Endurance is built on flutter kicking with assisted glides.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 3
This level provides an introduction to front crawl as well as the foundation for making wise choices on where and when to swim. Diving is introduced and children will work on floats and changing direction. Endurance is achieved by building strength in flutter kick and a 15-metre swim.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 4
The front crawl, back glide and shoulder roll for back crawl are further developed. Children work on kneeling dives, surface support and developing a greater sense on self-safety by understanding their own limits. Endurance is built through a 25-metre swim.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 5
Back crawl is introduced, along with sculling skills and whip kick on the back. Children try stride dives and receive an introduction to safe boating skills. Endurance is developed through dolphin kick and a 50-metre swim.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 6
Front and back crawl continue to be refined as the elementary backstroke is newly introduced. Children are also introduced to safety on ice, elementary rescues of others with throwing assists, treading water and the front dive. Endurance is built through a 75-metre swim.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 7
Level 7 continues to build skills and endurance for front crawl, back crawl and elementary backstroke and introduces whip kick on the front. Children learn about airway and breathing obstructions, and participate in timed treading water for increasing endurance. Endurance is built through time treading water and a 150-metre swim.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 8
Level 8 provides an introduction to the breaststroke, foot-first surface dives and rescues entries. Children learn about the dangers of open water, hypothermia, and the performance of rescue breathing on children and adults. Endurance is built on the dolphin kick an a 300-metre swim.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 9
Front crawl, back crawl, elementary backstroke and breaststroke continue to be refined. In this level children are encouraged to try combining different strokes and kicks for fitness. They also work on head-first surface dives and standing dives and learn about wise choices, peer influences and self-rescue from ice. Endurance is built through a 400-metre swim.
SWIM KIDS LEVEL 10
Further refinement of strokes, with an introduction to butterfly and scissor kick as a warm-up/cool down stroke for fitness. Children learn about sun safety, rescue of others from the ice and head-first and feet-first surface dives. Endurance is built using dolphin kick and butterfly drills and a 500-metre swim.
Even though we can't run swimming lessons right now, we want our community to be learning and practicing their water safety skills. Pick up this Swimming Lessons Challenges Passport and practice important water safety skills with your children to help keep them safe and prepare them for when swimming lessons resume.
We miss you all. Swim safe!
Refer to the Red Cross Swim Kids Performance Criteria for your child's level to make sure you are practicing the skills correctly:
Aquatic Event Schedule 2021
No special events are currently scheduled.
We are unable to offer special events such as swim parties or themed swims due to current public health restrictions. Check in again later for updates.
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.
