Fitness programs

If you have any concerns or special needs, please speak with the instructor.

 

Water fitness:
This program is a safe, enjoyable and well-balanced shallow water workout with music. It's appropriate for non-swimmers, pre/post natal women, and people of all ages and fitness levels. This program includes both cardiovascular and muscular strength training components.

Low-impact water fitness: 
This program uses a variety of movements to improve overall total body strength and endurance, with emphasis on improving the stability and functional strength of the core.

Red Cross swimming lessons:
Swimming lessons are about much more than achieving a badge. Swimming lessons are about learning to be safe in the water, learning first aid and rescue skills, providing recreation opportunities for your kids, and helping them to develop a lifelong commitment to an active and healthy lifestyle.

Tips for success in swimming lessons:
  • Let us know as soon as possible if you have concerns about your child's class so that we have time to address them.
  • Register early, especially if you would like to register more than one child in lessons around the same time.
  • Check your receipt to ensure that your child has been registered correctly.
  • Not sure what program level your child is in? We will do a free evaluation. Drop in during a public swim and talk to the supervising lifeguard on shift.
  • Sometimes children need a break from swimming lessons. We offer a variety of programs - including the ever-popular Junior Lifeguard Club - as alternatives. Variety can help keep kids interested in aquatics.

Parents day
On the last day of each session of lessons, parents may join their child's class and participate in the activities. Bring your swim suits and have a little fun. Your children will love it!

The KAC lesson guarantee
If your child has taken the same level twice within a 12-month period at the Kinsmen Aquatic Centre and has not completed that same level, we will provide a free 30-minute private lesson for your child. We take pride in the quality of our instruction. Your child's success is important to us.

Private lessons

Private lessons are a great way to develop specific swimming skills through personalized coaching. If your child is almost finished a level, and needs to complete just a few more items, a couple of private lessons could be the answer for you. 

Private lessons are not only for children. We offer private lessons for adults who are looking to learn how to swim when our adult lessons are not available.

30 minutes: $23.00
