Swimming (Year Round)

Kids having fun in the water

Important update to Junior Blues Aquatics Programs

SWIM TRANSITION

The Canadian Red Cross has made a decision to wind down its involvement in all swim programming in order to direct more attention to surging humanitarian demands in other areas. 

Junior Blues Aquatics is excited to announce that we will be offering a customized Swim for Life program for our swimmers starting Fall 2022. Our easy-to-follow progressions and levels that flow seamlessly into each other will develop solid water safety skills, swimming strokes, and lifesaving knowledge for our Junior Blues swimmers. Our classes will take you from caregiver and tot to six preschool and 10 Swim for Life levels through to Intro to Competitive Swim, Bronze courses and beyond!

Please refer to the link below for the level conversion chart and make sure to check out our new level descriptions and prerequisites on the pages below.
