Swim for Life

This program is currently not available in the Lifesaving BC & Yukon Branch.

“The acquisition of basic swimming ability is a fundamental requirement in any meaningful attempt to eliminate drowning in Canada” - Lifesaving Society Canadian Swim to Survive position statement.

Features and Benefits

Swim for Life is a complete learn-to-swim program from Parent & Tot through to Leadership. Easy to program and easy to explain, Swim for Life leads seamlessly into the Society’s lifesaving training awards. The program is endorsed by the International Life Saving Federation and the Commonwealth Royal Life Saving Society.

Learn to Swim Transition Chart

Many learn to swim programs are available across BC & Yukon. If you have a student coming from another province or making a change to another organization’s swimming lesson program, we have a transition chart available online that will help you determine what level to enroll them in.

Swim for Life Program Modules

There are five modules in the Swim for Life program:

  • 1. Parent & Tot for parents and children up to 3 years of age
  • 2. Preshool for children 4-5 years
  • 3. Swimmer for children 5 years and older
  • 4. Adult Swimmer for people over 16 years
  • 5. Fitness Swimmer for swimmers of any age who want to improve their overall physical fitness.

The Society designed the modules to flow together seamlessly and logically into one another and into the basic lifesaving awards: Rookie, Ranger and Star Patrol
