Swimming Programs For Kids

Swimming Programs

The structure of the swimming programs for kids in Aquastream is designed according to the Canada Red Cross Swim program. Same as in Red Cross, Aquastream offers four major swim programs. Based on the swimmers’ age, swim programs: Parent and tots usually for students between 6 months to 3 years of age or any other children requiring parent’s presence in the water during the class, Preschoolers for students between 2 to 5 year of age, Swim kids for students between 5 to 13 years of age and Swim teens for students 13 to 18 years of age. Accordingly, each program, except the Parent and Tot, has different swimming requirements in order for students to successfully master each swimming skill. Every swimmer gets enrolled to the appropriate level after a complimentary 30 minutes assessment at Aquastream.
