As of September 2018, Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club will be switching from Lifesaving Society to Red Cross Swim. There will be different levels of swimming to consider, outlined below.

The Red Cross Swim operates on three pillars:

  1. Swimming: Participants learn the five main swimming strokes (front crawl, back crawl, elementary back stroke, breast stroke, and sidestroke) and develop effective stroke techniques using logical progressions and proven teaching strategies.
  2. Skills and Water Safety: Based on our research, most drownings that occur are preventable incidents. Our skills and water safety knowledge components focus on self-rescue skills and safe behaviour to prevent injuries.
  3. Fitness: Each program level includes activities to build endurance and promote individual success while encouraging lifelong physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.
