Water Safety: Basic water safety skills are essential. Swimming pools, lakes and rivers offer year-round fun if they are enjoyed safely. But every year about 160 people drown in Ontario. Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for children under five years old, and statistics show that children under 12, boaters, young men and seniors 65+ are at greatest risk.
NOTE: For those requiring computer access, please visit your local library or Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre during business operating hours. Subsidy clients are asked to please call 519-756-9900 for more information.

* NEW! for Spring 2018, we will be introducing a 12-week session. Why?
Swimming takes practice, and the more consistent time swimmers can work with an instructor will help them build endurance, learn more skills and lead them towards being successful in their swim level. Red Cross Swim programs are designed to contribute to Canadians' long-term athlete development which improves overall health and offers a lifetime of sport participation.
Private Swimming Lesson Information
one-on-one swimming lessons are available throughout the week for swimmers ages 3 and older that require more attention to improve on their swimming skills, and are ideal for those that may move, learn, or communicate differently. lessons will be taught to our curriculum program or can be completely customizable.
