SWIMMING CLASSES

The Sports Centre offers a selection of swimming classes for little fishies to novice swimmers. We also have specialized classes for adults who’d like to feel comfortable in the water or want to improve their technique to get the most out of training. Our certified instructors will ensure young and old alike are always in good hands—in order to achieve their full potential!

PRESCHOOL SWIM CLASSES

4 months to 5 years old

This 8-level program lets children enjoy the water at the appropriate age and ability level. Every level is based on an aquatic-animal theme and comes with its own mascot—which makes learning fun and interesting for little ones!

The participation of a parent or guardian who can swim is mandatory >>

KID’S SWIMMING

6 to 12 years old

This program for school-aged kids will help little swimmers to develop the six basic swimming techniques (front crawl, back stroke, breast stroke, elementary back stroke, butterfly, and sidestroke), learn water safety and increase their physical fitness and endurance—all while having fun! Kids are encouraged to set goals for distance and time, which is excellent motivation for the 10-level program!

Due to COVID-19 distancing guidelines, there must always be a responsible adult who knows how to swim in the pool with each child until Junior 4 level.
