Learn to Swim

Lifesaving Society Swim for Life Logo

We are proud to offer the Lifesaving Society Swim for Life Program.  Our program is very small but we invite you to join our highly experienced Instructors for an amazing experience.  We have truly talented Instructors!

Our Philosophy:

Children learn and progress through swimming lessons at their own pace.  It is important that they are taught to swim in a safe environment and are not rushed through the essential stages of aquatic skill development.

We do not support the philosophy of forcing a child through a level or "challenging" a child by registering them in a level above their swimming ability.  It is not a safe approach and can cause children to regress and/or become extremely fearful of water.

We can assist you in choosing the best level for your child by having them complete a quick swim assessment.  Swim assessments are FREE and take 5 - 10 minutes.  They can be arranged by emailing Jenna Smith at aquatics@uwo.ca

Our Program:

We offer both group lesson and private lesson settings.

Our group lesson program is small and due to the size and depth of our pool, our Instructor to Participant ratios are extremely low.  In our Preschool Program we have 1 Instructor for 3 participants. Our ratios for our Swimmer Program range from 1 Instructor to 4 participants in Swimmer 1 up to a maximum of 8 participants per Instructor in Swimmer 6.

During the Fall/Winter terms, our group lessons run once a week (Wednesday evenings) for an 8 week period. Private lessons are offered Saturday mornings in 30 minute classes running for 6 weeks. This is a great option for all ages looking to receive one on one swimming instruction!

During the Spring/Summer terms, our group lessons run twice a week (Tuesday/Thursday evenings) for a 4 week period. Private lessons are offered during this time period as well in 30 minute classes. This is a great option for all ages looking to receive one on one swimming instruction!
