CSS Path to Success.

At Canada Swim School, we are committed to helping your child quickly become a confident and capable swimmer. Our unique skill-based system will evaluate your child’s skills to identify their strengths and weaknesses. These benchmarks will help us develop a customized lesson plan that is flexible and personalized, rather than following a regimented course outline.

The goal is to teach your child to swim confidently on their own before perfecting their technique. At the end of each session, your child’s report card will be updated to provide an overview of their progress and completed skills as well as skills to come. As they progress, their lessons will be modified and advanced, eventually teaching them to swim at a competitive level.

Our easy-to-follow system classifies swimmers as beginner: learning to swim, intermediate: an introduction to swimming techniques and advanced: perfecting proper swim techniques.

At Canada Swim School, we reinforce the right technique at the right time to help your child reach each milestone of success quickly. We make the swimming lesson experience easy and fun for you and your family.
