Private Swimming Lessons & Aquatics in the GTA
It isn’t uncommon to be an adult in the big city area of Toronto and be unfamiliar with how to swim. I’ve come across countless adults who cannot swim. If you’re still shocked by this fact, then you haven’t had enough conversations with real life people.
Learning to swim for many begins in childhood, almost incidentally. For example, if you grew up in Toronto, odds are you were pretty close to the water. This meant beach trips, or pool trips – Either way, water was likely part of the early life education for you…
For Many Others in Toronto…
For others across the greater Toronto, Etobicoke, and Mississauga area, the water may not have been so close. For what many consider to have been a convenience, others viewed it as an out of reach luxury.
Families that grew up on food stamps and coupon clippings may not have been able to visit the local rec centre’s pool as frequently, or maybe their parents didn’t want to take a trip down to the beach and let nature take it’s course.
It’s all completely understandable. Swimming lessons and learning how to maneuver in the water doesn’t happen the same for everyone.
The Red Cross & Lifesaving Society
The organizations of The Red Cross and The Lifesaving Society both operate as a sort of governing body of how lifeguards and swimming instructors should teach swimming and aquatics. This applies to all swimming instructors across Canada, Ontario, as well as Toronto and Etobicoke.
The tiered programs as offered by the Red Cross and Lifesaving Society provide a common framework that ensures a successful approach for both the swimming instructor and the swimming student, whether they’re an infant, child or adult -> It’s all detailed with different approaches and methods.
This allow swimming instructors across Mississauga, Etobicoke, and Toronto the ability to equally educated and instruct people of all ages how to swim and act in the water. This aquatics mastery can be achieved at any age if you just follow the grace of your teachers.
