Red Cross to the Lifesaving Society Swimming Lesson Transition The Canadian Red Cross announced at the beginning of 2022 that they would be winding down their involvement in the Aquatic and Water Safety Industry to focus on surging humanitarian demands in other areas around the world. Unfortunately, this means that the Red Cross will no longer offer their Swimming and Water Safety programs. The Manluk Aquatic Centre is currently offering Swimming lessons through this program. On May 16, 2022, we transitioned from the Red Cross’s “Swim Kids” program to the lifesaving Society’s “Swim for Life Program”. The Red Cross’s Swim Kids program and the Lifesaving Society’s Swim for life program have many differences in there approaches to teaching water safety basics. The Lifesaving Society has created a transition chart, which we have included in this guide on page 3 to assist our participants in registering for the equivalent Swim for Life Level. The Lifesaving Society is a full-service provider of programs, products and services designed to prevent drowning. They provide programs and training to approximately 1.2 million Canadians annually and are the leaders in lifeguard training. The City of Wetaskiwin’s Recreation Department is thrilled to continue to deliver Water Safety and swimming lesson programs to the community. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s registration, please contact the Lifeguard Office at 780-361-4411 or email the Aquatic Coordinator directly at tyler.bailer@wetaskiwin.ca.

Introduction to the Lifesaving Society’s Swim for Life program and Canadian Swim Patrol Program The Swim for Life® Program is a comprehensive swim instruction program that focuses on the acquisition and

development of fundamental swim strokes and skills for learners of all ages and abilities. Learning Swim to Survive® skills and achieving the Lifesaving Society’s Swim to Survive® Standard are key foundations of the Swim for Life® Program. Swim for Life® is accessible, flexible, success-oriented, and fun. Instructors ensure swimmers get lots of in-water practice in every lesson. Swim for Life® flows seamlessly into the Canadian Swim Patrol program and then into the Society’s lifesaving and vocational training awards, providing a complete, coherent, single-source program of integrated swimming and lifesaving instruction.

Parent & Tot (Levels 1-3)

The Parent & Tot Program structures in-water interaction between parent and child to stress the importance of play in developing water-positive attitudes and skills. Activities and progressions are based on child development, so parents register in the level appropriate for their child’s age. Activities to teach Water Smart® education key messages are incorporated into all levels.

Preschool (Levels 1-5)

The Preschool Program gives children a head start on learning to swim. Preschool Programs develop fundamental physical literacy skills for aquatic activities. In our preschool program we work to ensure 3 - 5-year-olds become comfortable in the water and have fun developing a foundation of water skills. Activities to teach Water Smart® education key messages are incorporated into all levels.

Swimmer (Levels 1-6)

The Swimmer Program makes sure children learn the fundamental physical literacy skills for aquatic activities. Progressions accommodate 5 - 12-year-old, including beginners and swimmers who want to build on the basics. Lots of in-water practice develops solid swimming strokes and skills. Activities to teach Water Smart® education key messages are incorporated into all levels.

The Canadian Swim Patrol program provides enriched training for those who are ready to go beyond learn-to swim. Swim Patrol has three levels: Rookie, Ranger, and Star. These programs continue to develop participants` swim strokes and provide the skill foundation that prepares them for success in the Society’s Bronze Medal awards. Rookie Patrol

Develops individual fitness levels to meet a timed 100m swim and 350m workout. Water proficiency skills include swimming with clothes, ready position, foot-first, and headfirst surface dives. Demonstrating the ability to conduct a primary assessment and initiating EMS are included as first aid skills. Victim recognition and throwing assists are other key elements of the program.

Ranger Patrol

Enhances capability in the water; including stride entry, underwater forward and backward somersaults, lifesaving eggbeater kick, and increased fitness levels to meet a 200m timed swim. Rescue skills involve an increased skill level in ABC first aid basics, victim recognition, and non-contact rescues.

Star Patrol

An excellent preparation for the Bronze Star award, Star Patrol demands good physical conditioning and lifesaving judgment. Participants develop lifesaving and first aid skills; further refine front crawl, back crawl, and breaststroke (100m each); and complete 600m workouts and for 300m timed swims.
