  • Aquatic leadership programs are a great next step after swimming lessons, offer first aid and lifesaving training, and can be a great path for youth employment.
  • And last but not least, we’re very excited to introduce you to the Canada Games Centre Swim Academy! All of our aquatic sport teams under one umbrella, with lots of opportunity to try them all. This new approach to aquatic sport is designed to support Sport For Life’s Long-Term Athlete Development principles, including lifelong enjoyment of physical activity for every Canadian.
