About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Sunday, June 5, 2022.

It is never too late to start! The program content which includes basic floatation, movement and breathing skills will assist you in increasing you comfort level in water. This is a great way to stay active while learning the basic life skill of swimming. Once performance criteria have been successfully completed, swimmers progress to the next level. This course will be held primarily in the shallow end.

Next Level: Red Cross Swim Basics 2 for Adults

This course is designed for adults. No previous swimming experience is required. This course takes place primarily in the shallow end of the pool

Please practice healthy swimming behaviors
  • Please do not go swimming if you are feeling unwell, especially if you have an upset stomach.
  • Please do not bring your child to swimming lessons if they are feeling unwell, have diarrhea, are vomiting (or have vomited in the past day) or have a cough.
  • Avoid swallowing the pool water or getting water in your mouth.
  • Please do not feed your child before swimming or do not go swimming for one hour after eating.
  • Non-toilet trained participants must wear leak-proof pants or garments of a similar nature.
  • In the event that our pool water is contaminated with fecal matter or vomit, facility staff are required to close the pool for 2-24 hours in order to properly disinfect the water and to ensure water quality is within the appropriate range set by the Public Health Act before swimmer can re-enter the pool.
  • The Red Cross recommends 15-20 hours of practice time to accomplish a level. A child repeating a level is very common, however, please speak with the deck supervisor if your child has repeated a level for the third or fourth time.
  • Bring a hair elastic to class if child has long hair.
  • Please do not wear street shoes on deck.
  • All patrons must shower before entering the pool.
  • Thank you for your co-operation!
