Swim for Life

NEW Swim for Life Program by the Lifesaving Society

The Canadian Red Cross has announced it will be winding down its swim and lifeguard programming and encouraged its training partners to transition to Lifesaving Society Canada programs. Strathcona Gardens will be making this transition for all swim lessons starting in January 2023.

Make sure you read our Recreation Guide for a full description of each level before you register! Pages 19-25 contain helpful and important information on transitioning from the Red Cross levels to Lifesaving Society, transitioning from our PreSchool to Swimmer levels, as well as detailed descriptions for each level to know where your child should start.
