Red Cross Swim Kids The Red Cross, a leader in Swimming and Water Safety for close to 60 years has continued to renew and refine their Learn To Swim program to meet the growing needs of Canadians.
Their program for children ages 6 years and older is a fresh approach to swimming and water safety education. It operates under three main core areas: Swimming, Fitness Levels and Skills, & Water Safety.
Red Cross Swim– Choose your level:
Swim Kids is a 10 level program for grades 1 and up which focuses on safety and swimming skills for children.
Swim Preschool for children (ages 3-Kindergarten) this program focuses on introducing the children to the water so they feel comfortable.
Registration Form (31.5 KB DOC) Registration forms are also available in the Fall & Winter Activities brochure, Town Hall, Tantramar Veterans Memorial Civic Centre and can be found in the Sackville Tribune Post during Registration.
Registration forms must be mailed to the Town of Sackville Community Development & Programming Department, PO Box 6191, Sackville NB, E4L 1G6. Registration for the January sessions will be on or after November 10. Forms must be postmarked on or after this date.
Cheques or money orders should be made payable to the Town of Sackville. If levels are full after the registration is received, your cheque will be returned if you do not wish to keep your child on the waiting list.
Children participating in one session will not be eligible to register for the following session until they have completed the course in which they are currently enrolled. They will be accepted at that time, provided there is adequate space.
Registration is on a first come, first serve basis.
Family Rate – Red Cross Swim Programs All families registering 3 or more children in one swim session will be eligible for a 20% reduction on the total cost of the combined individual registration fees.
