Swim Lesson Transition 2023

Starting January 2023, the Canadian Red Cross Swim Program will no longer be available. Esquimalt Recreation will be transitioning to the Lifesaving Society's Swim for Life program starting in the new year. 

This is a big change and we are here to help you understand the new program as well as how your swimmer will transition from Red Cross to Swim for Life.  For more information on the new Preschool and School Aged levels see below and/or visit the Lifesaving Society website.  

Winter 2023 swimming lessons will be viewable, online, on November 24, 2022 and registration will open on December 1, 2022 at 11:00pm.
