Once your child has completed SwimAbilities level 4, your child has the swimming skills and safety knowledge to participate in a Red Cross SwimKids level 3 class.
Alternative Swimming Lesson Options to SwimAbilities
Several options are available as alternatives for SwimAbilities.
- Children with special needs are always welcome in the regular swimming program at all City of Edmonton Pools. Parents are welcome to be in the water or provide an aide if they wish to do so. Contact the facility programmer or talk to your child’s instructor if you wish to further discuss any accomodations that your child might need.
- Modified Red Cross SwimKids classes for children who have completed SwimAbilities are available at some facilities. This is the regular Red Cross swimming program with a smaller instructor to student ratio.
- Many City of Edmonton Pools offer private swimming lessons 1-on-1 with a certified Water Safety Instructor. Contact 311 for more details on cost, pools, and schedules.
