1 AT A GLANCE (JANUARY 2017) 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 BACKGROUND The Lifesaving Society introduced its swim program in response to Affiliate requests for a low-cost and flexible learnto-swim continuum that focused on basic swimming skills and strokes and that led seamlessly into the Canadian Swim Patrol program. Today, the Society s Swim for Life program has grown into a major, national program that teaches hundreds of thousands of Canadians how swim every year. The latest program update (2015) reflects the experience of Affiliates and their instructors who deliver lessons to Swim for Life swimmers of all ages. Our thanks to all who provided input to make the swim program even better. FEATURES & BENEFITS Never too young to learn. Never too old to start: 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. Focus on learning to swim: Program content is stroke and skill driven: entries and exits; surface support; underwater skills; Swim to Survive skills; movement / swimming skills; fitness, and Water Smart education. A fun program with achievable content is enjoyable for both participants and instructors.
2 SWIM FOR LIFE PROGRAM AT A GLANCE JANUARY SWIM FOR LIFE PROGRAM MODULES Easy administration: One fee; no stats; staff and volunteer support during implementation and running of the swim program. One-stop shopping for affiliates, instructors, candidates, and parents. Flexible delivery: Choose Swim for Life modules based on your affiliate needs. Choose candidate recognition pieces (e.g., certificates, badges, seals) that are most appropriate for your clientele. Customization: We ll add your logo to candidate certificates and progress reports. Sponsorship opportunity: If you secure local sponsorship for Swim for Life, you can put sponsor logos or credits on progress reports and candidate recognition certificates. Strong leadership training: Streamlined process for training to reduce barriers in employment. The Swim for Life Award Guide, Teaching Swim for Life, core plans, lesson plans and other resources enable instructors to teach effectively on the deck and ensure consistency in standards. Instructors recertify through our professional development credit card system. Water Smart education: Not only is Water Smart education imbedded in the skills of the Swim for Life program, but we provide Water Smart education materials electronically so you can deliver drowning prevention messages in a variety of formats. This means you can reach the whole family, and deliver appropriate information when it s most relevant according to the time of the year and candidate experiences. There are five modules in the Lifesaving Society Swim for Life program: PARENT & TOT 1, 2, 3 for parents and children up to 3 years PRESCHOOL 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for children 3 5 years SWIMMER 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 for children 5 years and older ADULT SWIMMER 1, 2, 3 for people over 16 years FITNESS SWIMMER for swimmers of any age who want to improve their overall physical fitness
3 SWIM FOR LIFE PROGRAM AT A GLANCE JANUARY We ve designed the modules so they flow together seamlessly. You can program them independently or as you can see in the Programming Flow Chart on the following page program them all so they flow logically into each other and on into the basic lifesaving awards: Rookie, Ranger and Star Patrol. Preschoolers move from Preschool to Swimmer based on age traditionally around 5 6 years. Preschoolers who have completed Preschool 1 or 2, would move to Swimmer 1; if they have completed Preschool 3, 4, or 5, they would move into Swimmer 2. Content is organized as follows: Entries and exits Surface support Underwater skills Swim to Survive skills Movement / Swimming skills Fitness Water Smart education Mandatory equipment for the Swim for Life program includes lifejackets of all sizes. Other learn-to-swim equipment such as kickboards, pull buoys and toys will expand the scope for effective and entertaining training.
