**Woodcrest pool will be transitioning to the Lifesaving Society Swim Lessons this summer as the Canadian Red Cross has decided to focus their organization on humanitarian activities and The Lifesaving Society will now be the primary provider of Swimming Lessons in Canada**
We will also offer pre-assessments again for anyone who is unsure which swim levels their children should be entering. We will post a sign up link in June. We have also included a conversion chart on this page below between the two programs.
Children learn to swim, be fit, and stay safe in a fun environment that promotes achieving a personal best and celebrates personal success. The program teaches competitive and survival strokes, as well as increasing the distance and speed that each swimmer can achieve, while focusing on making safe decisions in, on and around water and teaching water safety that can last a lifetime.
Our swim lessons are generally provided in the mornings Monday to Friday, with some lessons being 30 minutes and the higher levels consisting of 45 minute lessons. We limit the size of the classes to make sure that all kids are being provided enough attention from the lifeguard.
